This Caribbean Airline Keeps Expanding

By: Caribbean Journal Staff - December 9, 2015

InterCaribbean Airways is launching new service to both Santo Domingo and Tortola out of Antigua’s recently-redeveloped VC Bird International Airport.

The new flights, which begin Thursday, are the latest expansion for the Turks and Caicos-based air carrier.

Flights will operate between Santo Domingo and Antigua on Saturdays, with Antigua-Santo Domingo flights on Mondays and Thursdays.

The Antigua-Tortola flight will operate on Sundays, with the return service later that day.

“This new service will mark the 4th Inaugural Airline flight to the new VC. Bird International Airport,” said Antigua and Barbuda Tourism Minister Asot Michael. “As we continue our efforts to attract new airlines to Antigua and Barbuda, the same day convenient connections that InterCaribbean Airways will afford us will significantly support our efforts in attracting visitors from other source markets such as Eastern Europe and Latin America. The twice weekly direct service with 30 seats per flight will be an added boost not just to our tourism industry, but will also be well received by the large community of our Caribbean brothers and sisters from the Dominican Republic who reside in Antigua.”
