Stephane Wessels, chief executive officer of Air Antilles, said: “I am happy to inform all Saint Lucians that Air Antilles will significantly increase its service to Saint Lucia during the winter period 2021-2022. This increase is proof of our commitment to the wider English-speaking Caribbean, which has faced significant reduction in inter-regional air service due to the COVID-19 pandemic. It is also a demonstration of our confidence in Saint Lucia as a very exciting demand destination for our network. Our winter schedule will offer Saint Lucians the ease of movement across several Caribbean gateways, including Martinique, Guadeloupe, Barbados, Sint Maarten, Curacao, Dominica and now Antigua.”
Marketing manager at the Saint Lucia Tourism Authority(SLTA) with responsibility for the Caribbean market and events, Christopher Gustave, remarked: “We are truly appreciative of the positive response from the team at Air Antilles. This partnership lends support to the efforts of the SLTA in recognizing the arrival of more Caribbean visitors and returning nationals within source markets. The schedule also provides same-day return service making it so much easier to escape to the awe-inspiring island of Saint Lucia”.
