Airlines must reduce cost of travel

St. Lucia Star "Secretary General of the Caribbean Hotel Association, Alec Sanguenetti, has warned that Caribbean tourism will continue to lag behind other regions unless the staggering cost for airlines operating within and into the region is significantly reduced.
He told media representatives attending Caribbean Marketplace 2008 in the Bahamas, that the operating cost for these airlines was among the highest in the world. 'That is a matter that has to be addressed because those costs imposed through various fees and taxation are simply passed on to all of us in this room when we travel,' the CHA official said.
