Air Transport Competitiveness and Connectivity

Air connectivity is a critical element for economic growth and development, especially for the small island nations of the Caribbean.

Additional air services and frequencies mean higher traffic volumes, which in turn help to improve economic competitiveness and therefore create employment opportunities.

Improved and more regular air connections enable economies to attract more tourists (including non-leisure visitors), conduct more trade and attract more foreign investment. Without these important air links, a country’s economy and employment potential could suffer.
