Aug 5, 2021

ST. GEORGE, Antigua and Barbuda – 5th August, 2021 – The VC Bird International Airport is once again welcoming passengers into its highly acclaimed Executive Lounge, which has been officially reopened as Antigua and Barbuda witnesses a resurgence in airline travel.

The pandemic left the Antigua and Barbuda Airport Authority (ABAA) with no other option but to temporarily close the lounge until yesterday, 5th August, when travellers were able to relax and unwind in the facility once again.

“Travel is coming back in a major way and with a number of adjustments and improvements, the members of the hard working team at the airport ensured that the Lounge was ready to host our visitors,” stated Minister of Aviation Sir Robin Yearwood.

“We were very mindful of the health protocols so we made some changes to ensure that our guests can not only feel comfortable but be assured of their safety on their last stop before leaving Antigua,” Stacy Cabrall, the Executive Lounge Coordinator, further explained.

The Executive Lounge is one of the proud and distinguishing features of the VC Bird International Airport, offfering travellers a tranquil sanctuary before their flights.

The Lounge makes available modern day comforts in either its air-conditioned interior or from a beautiful outdoor deck that provides breath-taking views of Antigua’s east coast and an up close experience of the airline activity on the tarmac.

It is perfect for the business traveller, who can find a quiet space on busy days to access the WiFi service to go through emails before leaving for their destination.

Cabrall noted that the UK travellers have been exceptionally pleased upon hearing the news as comfort is important for the long haul trips.
“The staff has developed quite a reputation of catering to everyone’s needs,” she added.

The Lounge has persistently earned rave reviews from the travelling public for its modern facilities and exceptional service. As a result,the Executive Lounge has been deservedly added to a number of prestigious travel passes to include Diners Club, Lounge Key and Priority Pass, which give their members access to lounges at international airports across the world.

The Executive Lounge opens from 11 am every day until the departure of the last international flight from the VC Bird International Airport.
