United Airlines will be launching weekly, non-stop service from Newark to St Lucia, the country’s tourist board announced this week.

The service will begin on Saturday, July 13, operated on a Boeing 737-800.

“This new partnership with United Airlines will help make St Lucia even more accessible for travelers from many of the island’s major gateways in the northeast, mid-west and west coast as well as provide added convenience for connections with a number of new markets,” said Louis Lewis, director of tourism for the St Lucia Tourist Board.

The flights will leave Newark on Saturday mornings at 8:55 AM, arriving at St Lucia’s Hewanorra International Airport at 1:48 PM. Return flights will depart St Lucia at 2:38 PM, scheduled to arrive in Newark at 7:33 PM.

The service will provide connections to 22 US cities.

“As one of the Caribbean’s most desirable destinations, St Lucia is a welcome addition to United’s network in the region,” said Millie Uriarte, director for Latin America Onshore and Caribbean Sales at United.
