International airlines increase airlift to St. Kitts



AA-at-SK-RLB-AirportBasseterre, St. Kitts, 20th November, 2017 ( - Minister of Tourism Lindsay Grant said the Government has been working closely with international airlines to facilitate improved airlift into St. Kitts.


Speaking at a recent press conference at the Park Hyatt at Christophe Harbour, Minister Grant said the aim is to assist in increasing access for the stay-over market.


“We have worked closely with our airline partners to build our air bridges to the destination… American Airlines will now provide twice daily non-stop service to St. Kitts from Miami for the first time in our history for five days a week, up from four,” Grant announced.


The flight will operate inbound Wednesday to Sunday and outbound Thursday to Monday starting 1st December 2017, with the first Wednesday operation taking place on 6th December.


In addition, the Grant announced that Delta Airlines will introduce a weekly non-stop service from JFK International Airport, New York, as well as an additional service from Atlanta. These recent developments come after an earlier announcement of a new non-stop service by United Airlines out of Newark, New Jersey.


The minister also disclosed that an additional mid-week non-stop service out of New York is being pursued.


Grant noted that the increased airlift is indicative of the growing popularity of St. Kitts and Nevis and made reference to several accolades on the destination from notable international publications, including the Wall Street Journal and Conde Nast Traveller.
