Italian Charter Touches Down for Winter

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.

Caribbean takes the chill off winter

Toronto Sun: "I'm dreaming of a white Christmas, but I'm not talking snow. I'm thinking of white sandy beaches with warm tropical breezes. Santa can deliver presents to my hotel room, thanks very much. And instead of the usual eggnog, I'd be happy to leave a strawberry daiquiri for the big fella -- no alcohol, of course, cuz he's driving. And when he's done his world tour, he can come back, take the beach chair next to mine and we'll relax until New Year's. Peace on Earth.

The Caribbean is one of the world's finest playgrounds with some of the best beaches anywhere. Virtually every island in the region can claim an ideal swath of sand set against clear, turquoise water. Can't you just smell that fragrant sea air? The real challenge is to find the one that suits you best. Here are a bunch of options -- some you probably know (and love), others just may be the inspiration you need to book a flight this winter."

10 Budget Caribbean Islands (PHOTOS)

Huffington Post "The Caribbean isn't exactly known to be cheap, but you can stretch your dollar pretty far on certain islands - even when traveling during the winter high season. Popular hot spots like the Bahamas, the Dominican Republic, Puerto Rico, and others offer great value in terms of easy access and well-priced lodging and dining options. But some off-the-beaten-path islands, from Montserrat to Tobago, are also worth seeking out for the extraordinary bang for the buck that they provide.
