(ZIZ News) — United Airlines is launching a non-stop service from its New Jersey hub at Newark Liberty International Airport to the Robert L. Bradshaw International Airport.
The announcement, made on Monday by the St. Kitts Tourism Authority, says the service will begin on December 19 and operate weekly on Saturdays through April 30, 2016.
The authority says the flights will complement existing non-stop airlift into St. Kitts from North America, providing more convenient options for travellers to get to St. Kitts during the peak winter travel season.
Meanwhile, Minister of Tourism, Hon. Lindsay Grant said the new service is significant for St. Kitts, particularly as many of the new hotel developments are opened or are opening within the next few years.
The Hon. Mark Brantley, Minister of Aviation says visitor research and stakeholder input have indicated that New Jersey is a very strong market for the Federation.
Director of Leisure Sales for United Airlines, Vic Kerckhoff said the addition will mark United’s 18th Caribbean destination from their domestic airports, offering more flexibility and choice for flyers travelling to the region.
