Cape Air Launching Flights Between St Thomas, Nevis
These are just a few reasons why the tiny island of Nevis has become one of the Caribbean’s most beloved little islands.
And now a leading regional airline is making it even easier to get there.
Next month, top regional carrier Cape Air is launching new flights between St Thomas, US Virgin Islands and Nevis.
The new service, which kicks off on Feb. 15, is operating daily, along with a pair of flights on Sunday — in other words, a total of 8 flights every week.
More importantly, the service opens up Nevis to the broad network of flights coming to St Thomas every day, thanks to Cape Air’s slate of interline partners like JetBlue, Delta, United and American Airlines.
That means you can book a single ticket and check your bag straight through to Nevis from any city on the aforementioned carriers that flies to St Thomas.
“Convenient interline agreements with our airline partners American, JetBlue, United, and Delta will allow for widespread distribution, increasing
access to Nevis as a tourism destination,” said Linda Markham, CEO and President of Cape Air. “We are grateful to be able to play a part in driving Nevis’ tourism economy.”
Cape Air has been operating in the Caribbean since 1998, with a particular focus on airports in the region not typically served by international jets.
With a hub in San Juan, Cape Air currently operates more than 80 flights every day to destinations including St Thomas, St Croix, Tortola, Vieques, Mayaguez, Culebra, Virgin Gorda and Nevis.
“We are delighted to see the return of the Cape Air service to Nevis,” said Devon Liburd, CEO of the Nevis Tourism Authority. “This service gives additional options for passengers who wish to travel between the mainland USA and our tranquil island of Nevis. Given the block of daily flights into St. Thomas, and the many codeshare and interline agreements which Cape Air has with some of these airlines, it bodes well for the success of this flight.”
It’s a big boost for Nevis as it kicks off what is projected to be a very strong year of tourism for the Eastern Caribbean island.
“We could not have forged this agreement alone; this is a result of close collaboration with The Ministry of Tourism and The Nevis Air & Sea Ports Authority, said Pamela Martin, chairperson of the Nevis Tourism Authority’s Board of Directors.
