There’s a new way to get to the Nature Island of the Caribbean.
Caribbean Airlines has officially kicked off its newest route, with the launch of new flights between Barbados and Dominica.
The flights will be operating twice weekly on Saturdays and Sundays, increasing to four times each week by mid-October, according to the company.
By Oct. 28, the flights will run on Sundays, Wednesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays.
“Our growth in the Eastern Caribbean continues with the start of service between Barbados and Dominica,” said Garvin Medera, CEO of Caribbean Airlines. “Caribbean Airlines is fulfilling our mandate to make regional travel easier and more convenient and this network expansion is working in parallel with our strategic interline agreements to facilitate seamless connections from international destinations via Barbados to Saint Lucia, St Vincent Antigua,Kingston and now Dominica.”
It’s a boost for Dominica, which has one of the region’s growing luxury hotel sectors, led by the first-ever Kempinski resort in the Caribbean.
Dominica reopened for tourism in August.
