NEWS RELEASE ISSUED BY THE BARBADOS TOURISM AUTHORITY (BTA), PREPARED ON BEHALF OF ITS PARTNERS, INVOLVED IN BRINGING THE AIR INDIA CHARTER TO BARBADOS
Air India, which will arrive at the Grantley Adams International Airport (GAIA) tomorrow at 11:30am, has announced that it will be unable to accommodate passengers on its return leg to Mumbai, India, due to the unavailability of crew.
The decision to cancel the return flight, which was due to leave tomorrow at 4:30pm, was made by Air India after it was found that there was an insufficient number of cabin crew to provide the expected standard of service for passengers on its 20-hour long haul flight.
Persons who paid for their flight will be refunded and are asked to contact their booking agent for details.
Any inconvenience is sincerely regretted.
