Piarco, 19 January 2012 – Caribbean Airlines is happy to announce the start of non-stop daily flights to George F. L. Charles International Airport, Castries, St. Lucia from 10 February 2012. The daily flights will operate as BW434, departing Port of Spain, Trinidad at 1:45pm and arriving into St Lucia at 2:50pm and BW435 departing St Lucia at 3:25pm, arriving into Port of Spain, Trinidad at 4:30pm.
St Lucia Minister for Tourism, Heritage and the Creative Industries The Honourable Lorne Theophilus states "I welcome this new service that will be provided by Caribbean Airlines into Saint Lucia from 10 February, 2012. This service certainly provides St. Lucia and Trinidad and Tobago greater air access into each other's countries and paves the way for our peoples to deepen participation in events in our respective countries such as carnival, jazz and our Creole Heritage activities during the month of October."
The Minister goes on to state that "Trinidad has traditionally been a very important Caribbean tourism source market for St. Lucia and this service by Caribbean Airlines into George F.L. Charles airport will make it extremely attractive for Trinidadians to not only come to St. Lucia for our big events but to make St. Lucia their weekend getaway destination of choice in the Eastern Caribbean. This will also provide greater travelling options for many St. Lucian students pursuing tertiary education at various educational institutions in Trinidad. We hope that this service succeeds as this will be one more bridge built in making the dream of Caribbean economic, social and cultural integration a reality."
All Caribbean Airlines flights into and out of St. Lucia are currently available for sale from as low as USD92.00 one-way, inclusive of taxes. The addition of this route solidifies our commitment to provide our customers with more options for travel within the Caribbean. St. Lucia has been of strategic interest to us and we are excited to offer our Caricom neighbours reliable scheduled airlift within the Caribbean. Our current offer for students along with added benefits of frequent flyer miles and complimentary bags will add value and exceed service expectations." noted Caribbean Airlines Acting Chief Executive Officer Robert Corbie. Caribbean Airlines continues to offer the best value added product with great service that reflects the warmth of the islands.
