A New Caribbean Airline Just Launched in Antigua 

By: Caribbean Journal Staff - November 1, 2022

There’s a new airline in the heart of the Caribbean, and it could open up a whole new market for the region.

It’s called Antigua Airways, and it’s a new airline that will connect a growing network of destinations in the Americas and, most notably, Africa. 

Initially, the carrier will be operating service between Toronto and Antigua, Lagos and Antigua and Ghana and Antigua. 

It becomes the first airline connecting the Caribbean with the increasingly important African travel market.

Service will begin with three weekly connections between Canada, Nigeria and Ghana, with Antigua as the central hub. 

To begin, Antigua Airways is operating with one B767-300ER unit, with 16 business class seats and 251 economy class seats. 

The first-ever Antigua Airways flight from Antigua to Lagos arrives on Nov. 7. 

The airline is based at Antigua’s VC Bird International Airport, regularly selected as one of the top airports in the wider Caribbean. 

“They said it could not be done,” Antigua and Barbuda Prime Minister Gaston Browne said ahead of the launch. “Once again, they were proven wrong.”

It’s another boost for a Caribbean destination that has seen some of the highest levels of arrival growth in all of the region in the last year.
