Bon Accord, Tobago
Tobago stands to benefit from an addi-
tional 266 seats per week coming into the is-
land over the twenty (20) weeks starting
from November 01, 2013 to March 28, 2014.
That was disclosed by Secretary of the Divi-
sion of Tourism and Transportation in the To-
bago House of Assembly (THA), Ms. Tracy
Davidson-Celestine last Wednesday as she
spoke to reporters from the Executive Coun-
cil media briefing.
She indicated that for the winter period
2013-2014, the Division of Tourism and Virgin
Holidays Limited has entered a new strategic
services agreement which will see two double-
jobs flight per week into Tobago.
That arrangement will realise a total of
5,320 seats available to the island and she
noted it undoubtedly will open the opportunity
for more visitor arrivals to the island. She
praised the significant contribution of Virgin
Atlantic to Tobago's tourism industry as it con-
tributed as much as 25% to tourist arrivals and
for being the leading carrier in bringing the high
end visitors to Tobago.
Without forgetting the cruise sector, Ms.
Davidson-Celestine who is also the Deputy
Chief Secretary, said that over the years the
cruise market business came mainly from
North America but with the challenges the divi-
sion has faced, together with the declines in
that sector, they intend to shift the focus to the
European market which, she noted has been
steadily growing based on their figures. In that
regards, she said in July the division will be
sending a team to some European destinations
to have meetings with key executives for the
purpose of ensuring that Tobago as a destina-
tion can be put on their port of calls.
The announcement of the new flights into
Tobago comes at a time when the Secretary of
Tourism has been critical of the slow pace of
the upgrade works at the ANR Robinson Inter-
national Airport. "It is nothing but a huge disap-
pointment to all of Tobago," she said and
added, "we in the tourism division, and I am
sure I can speak for the stakeholders as well
and even all of Tobago, that we are all very dis-
appointed with what is taking place".
She said there was agreement among her-
self, the Minister for Tobago Development, Dr.
Delmon Baker and the Minister of Tourism,
Stephen Cadiz on greater collaboration espe-
cially in the area of moving tourism forward
when they gathered recently on the 'debt re-
structuring investment programme' for hotels
and guest houses held at the Mt. Irvine Bay
Both Dr. Baker and the Airport's Authority
Board had given March 2013 as the time when
work should have commenced which would
have helped in fixing the leaking roof, expan-
sion of passenger check-in areas, and complete
renovation and expansion of the business
lounge/VIP area she stated.
"To date there is no visible evidence of any
work taking place and this is after a commit-
ment of having work started in March 2013,"
she said and made a special appeal to both the
Minister of Tobago Development and the Min-
ister of Tourism for them to have discussions
with their counterpart with responsibility for
the airport, the Minister of Works and Trans-
portation, Devant Maharaj to address the 'long
and outstanding issue of fixing the Tobago's in-
Further she said that, "the stakeholders are
very disappointed, we in the division are also
very disappointed and the THA and by exten-
sion the people of Tobago are disappointed
with the slow pace of progress in terms of up-
grade at the airport".
