American Airlines, JetBlue Add Saint Lucia Flights for the Summer

By: Caribbean Journal Staff - June 24, 2024

Getting to the “Helen of the West Indies” is easier than ever right now. 

The Eastern Caribbean island has added an extra 40,000 air seats for this summer, on carriers like JetBlue and American Airlines, both of which have ramped up their service for the summer months. 

That includes a double daily round-trip flight between New York’s JFK and Saint Lucia’s Hewanorra International Airport, running through July 23. 

The Bay Gardens portfolio has some of Saint Lucia’s most beloved resorts.

JetBlue is also adding to its Boston-Saint Lucia flights, with plans for two flights each wek. 

American just added a second daily flight from Miami. That flight is now operating already, with service set to continue through Sept. 3, 2024. 

Are you planning a vacation to Saint Lucia? 

We have several favorite hotels on the island, including the celebrated Jade Mountain resort, its beachfront sister hotel, Anse Chastanet, and the terrific Bay Gardens portfolio of resorts. (In exciting news, Bay Gardens is also opening a brand new luxury villa resort next year as well).
