French Caribbean airline Air Antilles is ramping up its flight service to Antigua this winter season.
That will include twice-weekly services on Mondays and Fridays from Barbados and Saint Lucia to Antigua.
The first flights will launch on Dec. 17, according to the Antigua and Barbuda Tourism Authority.
Air Antilles is also launching twice-weekly nonstop service between St Maarten and Antigua, with a connection to Guadeloupe.
“As demand for travel returns, Antigua and Barbuda is re-establishing itself as the heartbeat of the Caribbean,” said Antigua Tourism Minister Charles Fernandez. “The connectivity afforded by the integration of another regional carrier into our network, represents an opportunity for us to augment regional travel, and enables us to continue our move towards increasing arrivals from the wider Caribbean market.”
Of course, the flights will also mean easier connectivity from Europe, with the high volume of flights from Paris and Amsterdam to St Maarten every day.
“The addition of this service has been highly anticipated since Antigua is a vital gateway to fulfilling Air Antilles’ commitment to providing key airlift across the English-speaking Caribbean. We are thrilled to be flying into the destination and look forward to servicing Antigua and Barbuda, and travellers to Antigua for the long-haul”, said Romain Hordel, Commercial Director of Air Antilles.
