What the airport reminds me of

Dear Editor,

Our new shiny airport reminded me of a British series I watched years ago called “Yes Minister”. 

In one classic episode the Minister proudly announced his great achievement of a great hospital except that the hospital did not have any patients.

I am not too sure that the quality of airport is a significant factor in the decision by the tourists whether to visit our island. 

As one writer so eloquently put, hotel rates, car hire rates, flight costs, etc are matters of greater importance to the tourists rather than the anticipation of landing in a massively big but empty airport.
