Addressing the ceremony, the honourable prime minister said that the Federation’s collaboration with Sunrise Airways signifies more than just the introduction of additional flight routes to St. Kitts and Nevis.

“It embodies our collective resolve to expand connectivity in the region, stimulate economic growth and elevate our nation onto the global stage and it adds to our way in achieving our sustainable island state,” Dr. Drew said.

“The Government of St. Kitts and Nevis stands ready to provide support to ensure the success and sustainability of Sunrise Airways’ operations within our jurisdiction. We will work collaboratively to address challenges, seize opportunities and innovate in ways that enhance the overall travel experience for passengers while fostering economic prosperity for our nation,” Prime Minister Dr. Drew added.
