(PRESS RELEASE VIA NEWS784) – The Saint Lucia Tourism Authority is pleased to announce the addition of international flights to the island from the U.S. starting in the Fall 2018 with American Airlines, JetBlue and United Airlines.
JetBlue is expanding its luxury Mint service in the Caribbean and will launch this service on flights from Boston Logan International Airport to Saint Lucia starting November 3, 2018. Also, the airline will resume its Mint service on Saturday flights from New York’s JFK airport to Saint Lucia starting February 2019.
Acting CEO at the Saint Lucia Tourism Authority, Mrs. Tiffany Howard said, “The SLTA recognises the importance of airlift to grow the tourism sector, and we have been working hard to get more flights into Saint Lucia. Already, we have had record stayover arrivals this year, and this new JetBlue service, plus the new American Airlines flight from Miami, FL starting in December and United Airline’s service from Chicago in January, will only serve to increase the number of visitors staying over in Saint Lucia. This is great news for us!”
Earlier this year, American Airlines announced that it will add a new daily flight into Saint Lucia from Miami, FL beginning December 19, 2018. That service will leave out of Miami (MIA) at 7:15p.m. and overnight in Saint Lucia for an 8:30a.m return flight from Hewanorra International Airport (UVF) every day, starting December 20, 2018. The new American Airlines service will allow travelers even more flexibility, with the option of an evening flight into Saint Lucia from the US, and an early morning flight out of Saint Lucia.
United Airlines’ Saturday-only flights from Chicago O’Hare will operate starting January 5, 2019 through April 30, 2019.
