Today Tuesday November 23 marks a very significant day for the residents of Virgin Gorda and the wider British Virgin Islands as the island welcomed its first flight following the reopening of the Taddy Bay International Airport.
The flight while being a ceremonial trip to kick off the reopening of the airport, it also welcomed its first single engine aircraft since the recent lifting of the decades-long ban of single engine aircrafts on the Sister Islands.
Among those present at the ceremony were Premier and Minister of Tourism Andrew Fahie, Deputy Governor David Archer Jr, District Representative Vincent Wheatley, Territorial At Large Representative Shereen Flax-Charles, BVI Airports Authority (BVIAA) Deputy Chairperson Mrs. Patsy Lake, BVIAA Acting Managing Director Clive Smith, Chairperson of the BVI Tourist Board Mrs. Kenisha Sparuve and Director Clive McCoy.
