UPDATE: Passengers stranded at GAIA
Barbados’ CARIFTA team are among hundreds of passengers stranded at the Grantley Adams International Airport due to a strike by air traffic controllers.
With all flights halted until 6 p.m. passengers, some of whom were there from as early as 6 a.m. have been buckling down for the lengthy delay.
While the Arrival Hall resembled that of a ghost town, locals and visitors were seen scattered across the other sections of the airport, anxiously awaiting word on when their flights would be ready.
Taxi drivers also complained to Barbados TODAY that they had yet to receive any jobs for the day.
