Minister of Tourism and Civil Aviation Senator Allen Chastanet leads Saint Lucia's delegation to the 2011 edition of Caribbean Marketplace which takes place at the new Montego Bay Convention Centre in Jamaica from January 16 to 18, 2011.

ImageGetting to Jamaica is now a breeze with the launch of Apple Vacations’ nonstop service to Montego Bay (MBJ) from Capital Region International Airport (LAN) in Lansing, MI, on December 26, 2010. The four-hour flight from Lansing, MI, to Jamaica will operate on Sundays through April 24, 2011.


Veteran and award-winning Caribbean hotelier Anthony Bowen has been appointed Regional Managing Director of Elite Island Resorts.

CEO of the resort group Robert Barrett announced that the Saint Lucia-based Bowen, who also serves as President of the Saint Lucia Hotel and Tourism Association (SLHTA), has been selected to lead the hospitality company's charge throughout the Caribbean. "Our brand is poised for continued growth (and) with Tony managing that growth in the Caribbean region and Saint Lucia in particular, we are confident of a successful 2011 and far beyond."


Jamaica will welcome increased AirTran Airways service for the winter travel season from Baltimore/Washington, starting February 26, 2011. The additional flight, which will operate between Baltimore/Washington and Montego Bay on Saturdays and Sundays, runs through May 1, 2011.
 
“We welcome the additional nonstop flight from AirTran, which will make it easier for travelers from Baltimore to visit Jamaica this winter season. Just a three-and-a-half hour flight away, Jamaica is an easily accessible warm-weather escape,” said Jamaica’s Director of Tourism John Lynch. “Our exciting destination has so much to offer everyone, from our amazing attractions to our diverse accommodations and great cuisine, and with the additional nonstop flights, travelers looking to escape the frigid temperatures of the winter months in the mid-Atlantic area will find it impossible to resist.”
