As per the latest statistics from the Bermuda Tourism Authority, visitor number continued its growth at Crystal Caves till last month. The Ministry of Tourism of Bermuda stated that 28 percent rise has been witnessed in February this year with leisure traveling up by 4 percent. To quote the government spokesperson, ‘Strong air capacity in January kept total airlift for the two months 5 per cent ahead of the first two months of last year.
During the traditional shoulder season for hotel occupancy, hoteliers saw a boost of 22 per cent in filled beds for February, up 27 per cent for the first two months when compared to the same period in 2016.’ February was declared as the 14th month of consecutive year-on-year growth in air travelers.
To quote Cole Simons, the acting Minister of Tourism, ‘Bermudians are anticipating one of the best years in the key industry of tourism for a very long time. The Tall Ships, the America’s Cup and related regattas, added to the expected arrival of a number of the world’s super yachts, should combine with other events to flood Bermuda with excited visitors. Those coming to these events will need goods and services, which provides numerous prospects for those seeking employment or entrepreneurial opportunities.
The BTA should be commended because they are equally focused in a number of other areas to ensure Bermuda succeeds in tourism beyond the America’s Cup, and beyond this banner year. We expect this tourism renaissance is not only good for hoteliers and hotel workers, but also for owners of vacation rental properties and those who are thinking about entering the home-share arena.’
