Barbados at World Travel Market in London

Barbados was able to bounce back after its tourism sector was affected by the passage of Hurricanes Irma and Maria.

The two systems caused widespread devastation in a number of Caribbean islands and affected flights.

Chief Executive Officer of the Barbados Tourism Marketing Incorporated, William Griffith noted that amid the confusion over Barbuda and Barbados, the island ensured the word was out that all engines were running.

He says the impact of the systems was felt in the month of September.

Mr Griffith was speaking on the sidelines of the recently concluded World Travel Market in London.

Mr Griffith says forward bookings are looking positive for 2018.

Meanwhile permanent secretary in the Ministry of Tourism and International Transport, Donna Cadogan says the world travel market gives Barbados a major boost in letting the world know what is happening in the island in terms of its tourism product, events and attractions.

Mrs. Cadogan who headed the delegation to the travel market, adds that Barbados has benefited from very good mileage arising from the event.
