American Airlines will be adding two new flights from Miami to St Kitts, according to the St Kitts Tourism Authority.

The air carrier will also be changing the schedule for its nonstop flights from New York to St Kitts beginning Nov. 21.

The two new Miami flights will operate on Thursdays and Saturdays, in addition to the existing Friday and Sunday flights from Miami that were added last year.

“I am pleased that American Airlines continues to demonstrate confidence in the strength of the St Kitts & Nevis tourism industry,” said Senator Ricky Skerritt, Minister of Tourism & International Transport, in a statement. “The addition of two more flights from Miami is indicative of increasing demand for our tourism product.  Further, the schedule shift for the JFK flight to a later departure time creates a significant increase in the number of available connections to our destination from the U.S. and other international gateways.”

American will now have 11 flights from Miami each week, including twice every day from Thursday through Sunday.

“Whether it’s for world-class beaches or breathtaking landscapes, we are pleased to give visitors from around the world greater access to St Kitts with American’s increased service,” said Art Torno, American’s Vice President for Mexico, the Caribbean and Latin America.  “With this new schedule, customers can enjoy even more convenient connections to the island from either New York JFK or Miami.”
