|ANR Robinson Airport-Tobago|
The Tobago Tourism stakeholders indicated that it was not fair to the people of Tobago nor the industry to have a sub standard international airport "patched and fix'. Chief Secretary Orville London also said that the airport is in need of attention and sited the current state of the Airport for Virgin Atlantic's pull out. However, the airport authority have indicated that the fixing of the airport is only an interim intervention. The Airport Authority further noted that the renovations are geared to increase international arrivals as the Airport authority must ensure it is economical and efficient. They also stated that the interim face lift is part of a more comprehensive overhaul that should take place one flights are increased to the island.
Over the years tourism has continued to be the main income earner for Tobago, however, in recent times the sector has been plagued with numerous problems, the last being the withdrawal of Virgin Atlantic flights to the Island.
