“Virtually Unscathed” is how St.Kitts-Nevis is being described  following the passage of Hurricane Irma. The Ministry of Tourism told the media on Thursday afternoon that the Twin Islands were reltively unscathed having sustained only minimal damage. Tourism vendors and service providers are at 100% and within less than a few days the entire SKN Tourism industry and by extension the country  will be expected to be back to near 100% as far as normal operations . 

Carnival Fascination is confirmed to visit Port Zante Friday, as planned.

Most Hotels and tourism reatilers and vendors are either already fully operational or within 24 hours of that. 

‘Our heartfelt thanks to everyone who has kept St. Kitts & Nevis in thoughts and prayers while we awaited the passage of the storm,’ said Hon. Lindsay Grant, Minister of tourism, international trade, industry and commerce. ‘While we are beginning to resume normal operations, please join me in continuing to send thoughts and prayers to those who have been more seriously impacted.’

St. Kitts’ Robert L. Bradshaw International Airport opened at noon Thursday and is able to accept flights. However, due to the projected path of Hurricane Irma and the pending strike of Hurricane Jose , many airlines  canceled flights departing Saturday and Sunday from the US into the region.

Anyone who had planned to travel to the island this week is advised to contact their hotel and airline directly regarding their policies for handling storm related reservation changes and cancellations.
