Tourism on Nevis will benefit, Cape Air as an airline will benefit, the residents of Nevis will benefit and of course we also include the residents of St. Kitts and the US Virgin Islands who will also benefit,” says the Honourable Evelyn.
Mr Liburd said the launch of the Cape Air service is an exciting time for Nevis as it will increase access to the island as a connection point from the US and the USVI.
He thanked other stakeholders including the Nevis government, Nevis Air and Sea Ports Authority (NASPA), Ministry of Tourism, and Ministry of Finance for their critical roles in making the airline’s return a reality.
