CASTRIES, St. Lucia--The St. Lucia Tourism Authority (SLTA) is pleased to announce that InterCaribbean Airways will increase its service to St. Lucia this month.
InterCaribbean began flying into St. Lucia in March 2018 and had almost doubled its monthly service by the end of the year. Throughout 2019, the airline maintained consistent service with up to 780 seats in a month. In 2022, the airline increased its market share by offering daily flights from Barbados and Dominica, with some days having double or triple the number of flights, according to SLTA.
The number of flights and seats into St. Lucia will increase once more from March 12, when the airline will introduce three-times-weekly nonstop service from St. Vincent on Sundays, Tuesdays and Fridays, making connectivity between the two countries much faster.
Flights from Dominica will also increase from five days a week to six. In addition, the service will expand to provide more daily scheduled flights from Barbados.
St. Lucia is a paradise island in the Caribbean and a top destination for travellers worldwide, according to the SLTA. The St. Lucia Tourism Authority focuses on making travel to the island as easy and affordable as possible, it states. “We are delighted to partner with InterCaribbean Airways to provide our guests with more convenient and affordable travel options. This partnership will help us increase inter-regional travel and welcome more visitors to St. Lucia throughout the year,” remarked Dr. Ernest Hilaire, Minister for Tourism, Investment, Creative Industries, Culture and Information.
“InterCaribbean has served St. Lucia, since 2018 with only the pandemic causing a hiatus in service. But with the reopening of the region in August 2020, and the opportunity to enter into Barbados, began the new connectivity to add that city from St. Lucia, along with connections to many other points. With high demand for travel to or through St. Lucia, we recognised the need to separate some of the flying to increase available seats to St. Lucia. Starting March 12 with our new schedule, St. Lucia will enjoy more capacity, both in flights and seeing the upsize of aircraft, as we also introduce the ATR42 into the network. We look forward to continuing to work with St. Lucia Tourism Authority as we strive to meet the demands of regional travel,” said Trevor Sadler, Chief Executive Officer (CEO), InterCaribbean Airways.
