Caribarena Antigua News : "An Italian airline, Blue Panorama, made its inaugural flight into VC Bird International Airport early Tuesday morning. The weekly charter originates in Milan. The Italian market has always been a very buoyant one for Antigua & Barbuda, bringing in over 7,000 visitors last year.
This route was formerly serviced by Livingston Airlines, another Italian charter operator which went into liquidation in September. At that time, it was doubtful whether another airline would be able to meet all of the necessary requirements to begin operating in time for the winter season 2011.
Negotiations were held between the Ministry of Tourism, the Antigua and Barbuda Tourism Authority,"
