The United States’ West coast and midwest could be a source of future growth in tourism.
New tourism figures showed a more than two percent drop in arrivals from those two regions. Cayman Islands Tourism Association board member Marc Langevin told Cayman 27 the island has no problems attracting customers for the most part, he said the challenge lies in getting them here and through the airport.
He said a large swath of the US is an untapped market.
“I’m talking about the entire midwest, and all the West coast we are still the shortest destination if you think about it for anybody from the west coast of from those destinations, from Minneapolis, Denver, all the Northwest of the United States,we are the shortest destination to the Caribbean,” said Mr. Langevin.
He said the only limitations to our growth potential are the number many flights can we add, and how many passengers the airport can absorb.
