BASSETERRE May 2, 2010 – Regional airline LIAT is offering discounted fares on flights to St. Kitts this June, to make it even easier for Caribbean travelers to experience the St Kitts Music Festival and the preceding world-class cricket clash between the West Indies and South Africa. The much anticipated Cricket Test Match takes place June 18th to 22nd , and the 14th Annual St. Kitts Music Festival takes from June 24th to the 26th, 2010 at Warner Park.
In an effort to lower the cost of travel to St. Kitts for these two popular regional events, LIAT is offering regional travelers a special US$100 discount on the lowest available fares to St. Kitts, from 11 Caribbean destinations, including Antigua, Barbados, Dominica, Tortola, Grenada, Trinidad, St. Lucia, St. Vincent, St. Maarten, St. Thomas and St. Croix.
This special discounted fare applies only to persons traveling to St. Kitts between June 15th and June 30th, 2010, and bookings must be completed between May 5th to May 12th, and May 28th to June 4th, 2010.
“We are extremely pleased to be partnering with LIAT and to be able to offer our Caribbean patrons this wonderful opportunity to visit our island at a reduced airfare for the St. Kitts Music Festival,” said Mrs. Rosecita Jeffers, CEO of the St. Kitts Tourism Authority.
According to Mrs. Jeffers, this offer is part of the overall strategy to further encourage Caribbean nationals to experience the attractive island of St. Kitts and to be able to sample the interesting variety of product offerings available on the island. “The offer of discounted fares by LIAT is a result of the partnership we have forged between the St Kitts Tourism Authority and LIAT, and we hope that Caribbean cricket lovers and Music festival-goers will take full advantage of this unique opportunity to experience one of the region’s most sought after destinations and two world class events all in one package.” Mrs. Jeffers said.
