American Airlines is looking forward to flying the SVG- Miami route this according to Prime Minister Dr Ralph Gonsalves.
Gonsalves said this was expressed by a letter sent to the government by officials of American Airlines.
Gonsalves stated that the Vice President of Networking and Scheduling at American Airlines Vasu Raja said they are keen on seeing Buccamment Resort restart operations since it would benefit from American MCLA routes.
MCLA routes are within Mexico, Caribbean and Latin America to which the airline serves some 68 airports in 36 countries.
“We are hoping in the next couple of months everything would be ready for these flights to begin”.
“You see an airline like American would want to market the destination properly to get maximum returns”.
Gonsalves said they had an original arrangement, but there were some difficulties.
“They are discussing with us doing a round trip using their Miami hub on Saturdays”.
St Vincent is the only Southern Caribbean country that is currently not being served by American Airlines.
