Regional Caribbean ferry service L’Express des Iles has returned to the island of Antigua. 

The ferry made its first trip to Antigua fro Guadeloupe this week after a nearly three-year hiatus due to the pandemic, carrying 415 passengers in a charter trip. 

A delegation from the Antigua and Barbuda Tourism Authority led by CEO Colin C. James was on hand to welcome the group of visitors. 

L’Express des Iles is the leading ferry company in the Eastern Caribbean, with a network that includes Guadeloupe, Martinique, Les Sainte, Marie Galante, Dominica and Saint Lucia. 

The ferry’s parent company, Jeans for Freedom, has already announced more trips planned for April and May. 

“We look forward to growing this business with Jeans for Freedom because it’s great to connect Antigua and Barbuda with our regional brothers and sisters. Antigua and Barbuda have always been a regional hub by air, and now we hope to also have it be a regional hub by sea,” said Colin C. James, CEO of the Antigua and Barbuda Tourism Authority.
