Barbados Grantley Adams International Airport Update
« on: February 08, 2019, 05:49:21 pm »
Hiya I've just got some comments on Barbados's Airport.

IATA Code: BGI
Proposed Scale: 5 - Virgin Atlantic has a daily 747 flight to Barbados. You can check VS 30 which is the daily flight from LGW to BGI. link below:

Secondly, I'd update the population as it covers the whole island. The recorded population of Barbados which uses the airport is approximated to be 285,000.

Finally, I think Barbados need to increase its tourism bonus. The Maldives has a tourism bonus of 55 with 1.2 million incoming tourists in 2017 compared to 1 million in Barbados. Barbados also holds the highest spend per tourist in the Caribbean. I think it would be fitting proportionally to have a bonus of 45 to equal that of the Maldives. All the info is available below.
