Antigua and Barbuda remains on track to regain the ground it lost in hotel

occupancy rates and airlifts caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.

The latest data released by the Antigua and Barbuda Hotels and Tourist

Association (ABHTA) shows that occupancy rates for the month of April have

bypassed the rates for the same month in 2019, the year prior to the pandemic and

which was a record-setting year for Antigua and Barbuda tourism.

Occupancy rates for April averaged 75.8 percent, compared with 70.4 percent for

2019. As a footnote, the ABHTA noted that approximately 16,734 room nights are

closed in the destination (including Hawksbill), despite this however, if the

available rooms had remained the same from 2019 to 2023 the adjusted average

would still be 73.7 percent. This is a figure higher than in 2019.

Arrivals were also up in April this year, in comparison to the base month of 2019.

The figures for arrivals in April rose by four percent, to record a total of 28,328

visitors. For April 2019, the figure was 27,302. The United States continues its role

as the most important source market for tourists visiting Antigua and Barbuda with

a total of 13,608 compared with 11,709 visitors.

The UK, Canada, and the Caribbean are the countries after the US and ranked in

descending order, which are most important to Antigua and Barbuda.
