British Airways has announced that from the spring of 2015, it will be commence an additional flight to Tobago to increase airlift to the island.Colm Lacy, the company's head of commercial (Gatwick), told the UK launch of the BA Tobago Legends Football Classic in London, England, that BA was adding the flight because of increased demand for the route.
Lacy explained, "This is being driven by demand on the route and we felt that we could allow visitors to the island the opportunity to stay seven days, 11 days or 14 days."The additional flight will be shared with Antigua. Lacy said as Tobago continued to grow as a destination, BA would be interested in exploring non-stop direct flights to Tobago.
Tracy Davidson-Celestine, secretary for tourism and transportation in the Tobago House of Assembly, said with the BA flight and some other arrangements being put in place, she is now satisfied that Tobago had the necessary airlift out of England.
