257 visitors touch down in Tobago

By KARL E CUPID Tobago Bureau Thursday, December 5 2013

Scandinavian airline, KUONI-APOLLO touched down at ANR Robinson International Airport, Crown Point, Tobago, at about 8 pm Tuesday bringing some 257 visitors from Sweden, Finland, Norway, and Denmark on its inaugural flight to the island.

The charter flight will operate weekly out of Sweden, and fortnightly out of other areas in Scandinavia. Tobago House of Assembly (THA) Deputy Chief Secretary/Secretary of Tourism and Transport, who was on hand to greet flight captain Malaky O Curry and other crew members, described the occasion as a significant milestone in Tobago’s tourism industry now making inroads into the Scandinavian market, the third largest tourist market in Europe.

Addressing a brief reception to mark the occasion, Davidson-Celestine noted the 257 passengers represented a 95 percent capacity load, and indicated that some 2,500 passengers had confirmed bookings for the current tourist winter season through to March 2014.

For his part, Captain O Curry said Kuoni-Apollo viewed it a great honour to bring a flight out of Scandinavia into Tobago, making it a first for many years, and was looking forward to extending the service.
