New private terminal opens at St Kitts and Nevis Airport

A brand new terminal has opened at the Robert L. Bradshaw International Airport (SKB) on the island of St Kitts in the Caribbean.

The St Kitts and Nevis Government opened the new Private Terminal with YU Lounge on 2nd May, 2014 and it provides an efficient fast-tracking service to individuals and small groups who are flying into St. Kitts by private jets or commercial flights.

Located on the west side of The Robert L. Bradshaw International Airport, the new terminal offers full service arrival and departure lounges, a dedicated crew lounge, and a range of ground handling services for aircraft operators.

The facilities were designed by Bobby Mukherji and Associates, one of India's leading design firms, and the buildings were constructed by Lennox Warner and Associates, a local St. Kitts company. Senator Ricky Skerritt, the Minister of Tourism and International Transport, commented:

"With a number of strategic tourism-related capital projects underway, including the upcoming opening of the upscale Kittitian Hill Resort, this new Private Terminal at the RLB International Airport is debuting at the ideal time. This facility now gives our twin-island destination a competitive edge in appealing to the discerning luxury market that requires the world-class, customer-centric service it provides. I am pleased that our visitors will now have the option for such a luxurious arrival and departure experience, almost as if their resort or villa accommodation experience has begun and ended at the Airport itself."

The Private Terminal is a joint-venture between the St Kitts and Nevis Government, The St. Christopher Air and Sea Ports Authority (SCASPA) and the Veling Group, an aviation company offering aircraft sales and leasing.

St Kitts and Nevis is a nation situated in the West Indies made up of two islands separated by a two-mile channel.

The island of St Kitts features breathtaking scenery including volcanic peaks, white sand beaches fringed with crystal clear turquoise ocean waters, lush green forests and winding rivers. Visitors can choose from a variety of beachfront hotels and luxurious resorts, as well as a wide choice of activities such as golf, tours to historical sites, bird watching, scuba diving, snorkelling yachting, catamaran cruises, fishing, shopping and relaxing in lavish spas.

The close proximity of the quieter island of Nevis allows holidaymakers to explore both of the beautiful islands during their visit to the Caribbean. Tourist attractions include Brimstone Hill National Park, Frigate Bay, Frigate Bay Golf Course, Cottle Church, Pinney's Beach and The Alexander Hamilton House.
