Barbados welcomes first winter flight from Frankfurt

November 2nd, 2021

Barbados continues to see a strong rebound of its tourism economy.

This assessment from interim CEO of the Barbados Tourism Marketing Incorporated, Craig Hinds, as the country welcomed its first winter flight from Frankfurt.

The Eurowings Discover airline landed at the Grantley Adams International Airport, bringing with it passengers and members of the press from several European countries including Germany, Italy and the Netherlands.

The BTMI’s Senior Development Officer for Europe, Debbie Moe, has been talking about the service.

Ms. Moe says the German market has changed since the pandemic, with people booking just weeks before they fly, instead of months.

However, she says it continues to be the strongest for Barbados in continental Europe, and local tourism officials continue to push the island as a destination.

Meanwhile Germany’s Honorary Council to Barbados, Andreás Kusay says he’s hopeful the airline will continue to provide at least a once weekly flight after the winter tourist season.
