Barbados will cut airport taxes for regional travellers by 50 per cent.
“Cabinet has agreed that there is to be a 50 per cent reduction in airport service charge to regional travellers. That brings us pretty much in line with what you have been hearing coming out of other markets, and in particular, Antigua . . . that is meant to reduce the taxes on inter-regional travel,” said Minister of Tourism and International Transport, Senator Lisa Cummins.
Cummins, responding to questions from the media during the “State of the Tourism Industry” update, said that Cabinet had agreed “to that significant reduction.
“That is meant to reduce the taxes on intra-regional travel,” she said, adding that Cabinet later this month will also be discussing a “full price based competitor’s analysis for Barbados”.
