If you have been dreaming about a visit to the Caribbean Islands, relaxing beaches and white sandy beaches, clear pristine waters, dancing day and nights and delicious food and drinks, there will soon be a non-stop flight from Lagos to get you to Barbados and back.

Persecondnews.com gathered that negotiations between Barbados, the Africa Export-Import Bank, and Air Peace  could lead to the commencement of a direct route between Barbados and Nigeria as soon as the second half of the year.

Barbados’ Caribbean Community (CARICOM) Ambassador, David Comissiong, has revealed that negotiations between the Africa Export-Import Bank and Nigeria’s Air Peace were going well. If successful, the island could see the commencement of the direct route to Africa.

Speaking at an event to celebrate Ghana’s 66th Anniversary recently, the ambassador said “Hopefully, before the middle of the year, we’re going to have that direct airline license, not between Ghana and Barbados, but it’s likely to be between Lagos, Nigeria, and Barbados twice a week. So, once we can get on that plane at Grantley Adams International Airport and fly across the Atlantic to Lagos, that is just a short journey from Lagos to Accra, Ghana,”

 

More than 28 million people visited the region in 2022, a more than 50% jump compared with the previous year, according to the Caribbean Tourism Organization.
