“It is extremely gratifying to see St. Kitts continue to be recognized for its tourism product, particularly as an emerging luxury destination,” said the Hon. Lindsay F.P. Grant, Minister of Tourism, International Trade, Industry and Commerce.
“Getting a feature article in such a respected publication that is read by such a large number of entrepreneurs and leaders globally, many of whom are quite affluent, is a testament to the destination’s growing appeal within the luxury market.”
Entitled, “St. Kitts: From Tarmac to Porsche Cayenne in 60 Seconds,” the article was written by Breanna J. Wilson, a blogger and social media influencer covering food and travel who visited the island in July for Restaurant Week. It calls St. Kitts, “a new hotspot for luxury and adventure” and lauds the YU Lounge arrival and departure “premium experience,” calling it as well as “what may be the most relaxing airport experience ever.”
The private jet facility is described as “heaven” and details of the service provided therein are included, from mention of the design, baggage handling, security and customs clearance to the transfers in a Porsche Cayenne to/from the plane right from the tarmac. It also notes that the terminal can be used by both commercial and private jet passengers and that some hotels are now including the services in select guest packages.
