GAIA go-slow at a bad time


Share post:

MINISTER OF TOURISM and International Transport Richard Sealy will remain mum on the go-slow action at Barbados’ ports of entry – until he has more information.

Speaking to the SUNDAY SUN yesterday during a press event to celebrate JetBlue’s inaugural flight out of New Jersey, Sealy said he did not like to comment on matters “in a vacuum”.

“I will comment when I have something specific to comment on,” he said. 

Chief executive officer of the Barbados Hotel & Tourism Association (BHTA), Sue Springer, however, was more forthcoming and painted a grim picture of how the sector would continue to be negatively affected if the action persisted.
