UK airline scraps Caribbean flights

- Caribbean360.com: "LONDON, United Kingdom, August 28, 2008 - XL Airways has scrapped all its Caribbean routes, blaming rising fuel costs and a slowdown in the United Kingdom (UK) economy for the move.
XL, a leading UK scheduled and charter airline, said that by November 3 it will end services to St Lucia, Barbados, Tobago, St Kitts and Nevis, Antigua and Grenada. This means that St Kitts will have no direct flight from Europe and the country's Minister of State with responsibility for Tourism, Ricky Skerrit was quoted on SKNVibes as saying that the XL cuts could result in a total loss about 7,000 passengers to St Kitts every year, including over 4,000 British tourists and hundreds of UK-based Kittitians and Nevisians."
