On Independence Day next Tuesday, the new airline will operate a charter service into the V. C. Bird International Airport.
A delegation, led by tourism minister, Charles Fernandez, will welcome the airline’s Nigerian owners, crew and passengers who will arrive from Lagos, Nigeria.
While many of the passengers arriving on the direct flight, which takes just under ten hours, will move on to other destinations, Antigua Airways has created a one-week vacation package for those remaining in Antigua.
The one-week package includes airfare, accommodation and entry VISA for Antigua and Barbuda.
According to the company’s website, a basic package is being sold for US$4347.33 and a business package for US$9152.27
Airfare alone starts at US$3432.10
