Minister Grant announces More Flights from the USA to St. Kitts.
BASSETERRE, ST.KITTS: North American Airlines is now providing additional flight options for travelers to the twin-island federation for their leisure travel.
Over the past 18 months, there has been a rising demand for flights destined to St. Kitts, as result, North American Airlines has moved to capitalize on this.
“It is a testament to the strong relationships that the St. Kitts Ministry of Tourism together with the St. Kitts Tourism Authority have built with the airlines that have led to this additional service,” said Minister Grant. “I could not be more pleased to see increased airlift to our shores from our airline partners to help us continue our momentum of growth in the tourism sector.”
According to the St.Kitts-Nevis Times, St. Kitts’ airlift strategy consists of continuing to nurture relationships with the airlines to systematically build out air bridges to and from identified target gateways to grow service in a sustainable manner that will support new and existing hotel developments as well as other local tourism stakeholders while making the island increasingly easy for air travelers to reach.
As the peak season approaches, flight will increase. As early as November 3rd, Air Canada will resume its seasonal non-stop Saturday flights from Toronto to SKB, providing an additional 7 operations for 2018 as compared to the same period in 2017.
As of December 22, through to April 20, 2019, Sun Country Airlines will provide St. Kitts with non-stop Saturday flights from its Minneapolis hub providing a total of 18 new operations for 2018/2019 that did not exist during the same period in 2017/2018.
