Barbados-based low-cost carrier REDjet will be offering summer specials to Antigua starting with a US$16.99 promotional fare.
This means travellers between the two countries will now have a new alternative for travel over the summer months, as REDjet proposes to fly between the two cities with same-day return service.
Communications executive, Nyssa Pierre said the airline was now getting permissions to travel on new routes faster, especially as key players involved recognised the importance of the airline and its low fares.
She added the airline's Barbados/Antigua route was very significant and would be recognised as the main carrier bridging the northern and southern Caribbean.
Ms. Pierre said Barbados had noticed significant increases in traffic from Guyana and Trinidad, which would add to the improvement of the countries' economies.
