American Eagle flights to Nevis resumes Thursday

American Eagle landing at the Nevis Airport
(Charlestown, Nevis–Tuesday, December 14th, 2010) Premier of Nevis
and Minister of Tourism in the Nevis Island Administration, the Hon.
Joseph Parry expressed satisfaction with the return of American
Eagle’s schedule flights to Nevis, after a two- year hiatus.
The airline is slated to return to Nevis on its first scheduled flight
at 1:55pm on Thursday, December 16th.
“After two years of no direct flights between San Juan, Puerto Rico
and Nevis since the closing of the Four Seasons Resort, I am very
pleased with the recommencement of that important flight back to the
island,” said Hon. Joseph Parry.

The Premier outlined the importance of the flight to the island and
discussed the departure tax revenue it would generate for the Nevis
Treasury. He explained that flights en route to North America and
other destinations would now be able to leave out of Nevis, instead of
sister island St. Kitts and that visitors to Nevis would now be able
to travel direct because of the American Eagle flight.

“With the re opening of the Four Seasons Resort and the resuming of
the American Eagle flights to Nevis, it seems to me that 2010 will end
on a positive note for Nevis,” said the Premier.

According to the United Kingdom and Europe Sales Manager for the Nevis
Tourism Authority (NTA), Ms. Julie Claxton, a welcoming ceremony is
planned for 1:30pm at the Airport in Newcastle and passengers of the
American Eagle will be welcomed on arrival to Nevis. The passengers
will be greeted with local drinks and the pulsating sounds of live
steel pan music.

“We are happy to have the American Eagle flight resuming its schedule
to Nevis. It will be a great boost to the island’s Tourism Sector,”
commented Ms. Claxton.
