Travel Agent was on hand for a press conference held by Richard “Ricky” Skerritt, minister of state in the ministry of tourism, sports and culture for St. Kitts during Caribbean Marketplace 2008 in Nassau, The Bahamas. Island representatives plugged the construction of Kittian Hill, a resort village, and upcoming flights by Delta Air Lines from Atlanta, beginning February 16.
Kittian Hill will be set on a 400-acre hillside site, consisting of a village with a center for creative arts, villas, apartments, a cottage hotel, a spa and a championship golf course. Groundbreaking is expected to begin early this year, although there is no set time frame for when the project will be complete. In addition to new nonstop service to St. Kitts from John F. Kennedy International Airport in New York, which America Airlines launched on November 18, Delta Air Lines will launch nonstop flights from Atlanta beginning February 16. They will take place once a week on Saturdays. Visit www.stkitts-tourism.com.
