Local hoteliers are being encouraged to work closely with the Saint Vincent and the Grenadines Tourism Authority, to take advantage of the opportunities which will come, now that the Argyle International Airport is operational.
Prime Minister, Hon. Dr. Ralph Gonsalves, made the suggestion at a news conference held on Monday 20th February, and noted that the Tourism Authority is continuing negotiations with international airlines, to secure commitments for regular international flights into the Argyle International Airport.
The Prime Minister said that the airlines are likely to need about four to six months, before they can make this commitment.
He noted that local hoteliers can work along with the Tourism Authority to organize charters for specific events like the Easter Regatta and Carnival.
