AOL Travel and British Airways Name St. Kitts as Top Travel Destination for 2011

The islands of St. Kitts and Nevis have been recognised as one of the top ten travel destinations twice in the space of just one month by AOL and British Airways.

AOL Travel website has named St. Kitts holidays in 4th place on the January 10th list which was compiled by travel journalist, Jordan Simon.

This achievement closely follows the Top 10 List for 2011 which was released by British Airways on December 10th 2010 where St. Kitts holidays were placed in 4th place once again.

Senator Richard Skerritt, the Minister of Tourism, says that the recognition indicates that the destination's development strategy is clearly working.

Senator Skerritt, also the Minister of International Transport, said: "Earning this distinction from two top travel entities is a clear indication that our strategy for the development of St. Kitts' destination experience is working.

"We have been making significant strides forward in terms of new developments while ensuring that our natural assets, rich heritage and authentic local culture remain intact and protected. This welcome publicity from AOL Travel and British Airways is only the beginning of the rewards that our efforts will bring to the island and people of St. Kitts and Nevis"

In December 2010, British Airways released a press release which ranked Caribbean holidays in St. Kitts along with New York, San Diego and Marrakech as its top growth destinations for 2011.

The airline launched weekly flights to St. Kitts from London Gatwick Airport in January 2009 and in March 2010 the flights were increased to twice weekly. British Airways was named as St. Kitts' Tourism Partner of the Year in 10th Annual Tourism Awards in October 2010.

The article on the AOL Travel website highlighted the region's lush rainforests, beach bars and excellent terrain for mountain biking and scuba diving, while highlighting the blend of luxury and value for money St. Kitts hotels.
