Senator Kay Baptiste making her presentation last evening in what the New Democratic party call the “People’s Budget”, said, “at this point in time I have not seen on CAL’s website a direct flight from SVG to New York”.
CAL recently announce that they would begin flights from AIA to JFK starting on March 14th, 2018.
The service according to the airline website would be a weekly flight done every Wednesday.
However, Baptiste said last evening. “ let’s wait and see if what the Minister of Finance said during his presentation will become reality”.
A check on Caribbean Airlines website last evening showed that nationals or visitors can book flights for US $672. 41, Expedia also showed bookings at a price of US $622.00.
Both CAL’s website and Expedia showed these flights are non-stop between AIA and JFK.
On Monday 5th February the airline further announced that it would add additional flights for Vincy Mas 2018.
Those additional flights by CAL would commence on July 7th, up to August 25th, 2018.
SVG would also benefit from flights by American Airlines in the third quarter of this year.
