The Nevis Island Administration (NIA) is optimistic that negotiations with a number of regional airlines with regard to increasing airlift on the island of Nevis, will soon bear fruit.
Giving an update on the issue of airlift recently, Hon. Mark Brantley, Premier of Nevis and NIA Minister of Finance and Tourism, said negotiations with the airlines are at an advanced stage and the government is optimistic of a resurgence of flights at the Vance W. Amory International Airport.
“On airlift, a perennial problem we know we’ve had, I am proud to announce that we have now advanced discussions with Cape Air regarding returning to Nevis after an hiatus. Cape Air has been interested in coming back for some time but they had an unusual problem, and that is post-Covid they couldn’t find pilots, apparently there’s a shortage of pilot; but we are talking to them and they hope to be back shortly, and they are going to provide a service to St. Thomas in the US Virgin Islands.”
