The St. Kitts Tourism Authority won a coveted “Highly Commended” award in the Destination category of the Routes Americas 2018 Marketing Awards. It was selected for this award by vote of airline network planners from the Americas region.

“It is a great honor to receive this award from the airlines,” said the Hon. Mr. Lindsay F.P. Grant, Minister of Tourism, International Trade, Industry and Commerce. “Air service is key to the development of our tourism product, so to have the carriers themselves vote for us is truly a testament to the success of our strategic route development and airlift marketing.”

“Earning the ‘Highly Commended’ award is an exceptional accomplishment for St. Kitts and we are very grateful to the airlines for this accolade,” said Nick Menon, Chairman of the Board of the St. Kitts Tourism Authority.

“I am extremely pleased that St. Kitts has achieved this distinction from airlines and their network planners,” said Racquel Brown, CEO of the St. Kitts Tourism Authority. “We have worked hard to continue to increase airlift year over year from key gateways and develop and maintain our relationships with all the legacy carriers servicing St. Kitts. Having our efforts recognized by them but also by airlines who were judges that do not currently service St. Kitts demonstrates that our airline strategy and destination marketing are outstanding, therefore this award is a remarkable accomplishment. Although St. Kitts & Nevis is the smallest independent nation in the Western Hemisphere, achieving this award clearly demonstrates that we can compete on a much larger scale.”
