Government has announced plans to create a regional air travel hub that will be based in Barbados.

Speaking at a Tourism Town Hall meeting at the Hilton Hotel this morning, Minister of Tourism and International Transport Senator Lisa Cummins said the initiative will bring an end to the long standing challenge of regional air travel.
