United Airlines Launches New Caribbean Routes

By: Caribbean Journal Staff - January 3, 2016

As carriers like JetBlue and American Airlines compete to expand in the Caribbean, another carrier is stepping up its game.

United Airlines has completed the launch of several new routes to the Caribbean.

Late last month, the carrier launched its first flight from Newark to St Kitts, a direct flight operating weekly on Saturdays.

“The new flight from St Kitts will provide convenient connections to various destinations across the United States, including Washington DC, Boston and Chicago,” said Darrell Scott, a representative for United.

United has also launched two new nonstop flights to to St Lucia, coming in response to increased demand from the US market for the island.

The first is a nonstop flight from Chicago operating on Saturdays, while the second is an additional weekly flight from Newark, New Jersey to St Lucia, operating on Sundays.

Also last month, the company inaugurated nonstop service from Chicago to Grand Cayman on Saturdays, along with four-times-weekly service from Washington Dulles to Grand Cayman.
