New Nonstop Flights to St Maarten

By: Caribbean Journal Staff - June 12, 2021

American Airlines has launched its newest Caribbean route, with nonstop service from Dallas-Fort Worth to St Maarten. 

The new flights, which launched this week, are operating every week on Saturdays. 

American Airlines is operating the service on Airbus A321 aircraft, with plans to operate through at least the end of the summer. 

Roxxy Beach, the island’s most popular beach spot and club.

American Airlines continues to ramp up its air service in the wider Caribbean, with increased vaccinations and traveler confidence leading to a full-fledged Caribbean surge. 

The launch comes as St Maarten continues what has been a successful tourism reopening first launched in the summer of 2020.

And then there’s the new Morgan resort, the first new hotel in St Maarten in years, which just opened at the beginning of June.

On the French side, travelers can choose from top resorts like the Grand Case Beach Club and the newly-relaunched Belmond La Samanna, among others.
