Caribbean Airlines will resume its commercial flight operation to St Lucia from Piarco International Airport (POS) in Trinidad. BW432 arrived
The arrival of BW432 at George F.L. Charles Airport was the airline’s first trip to the destination since its closure in 2020 because of the global covid-19 pandemic.
Dr Ernest Hilaire, Minister of Tourism in St Lucia, for celebrating the reopening of another important tourism resource market under the brand of Caribaction, met Saint Lucia Tourism Authority’s (SLTA) Marketing Manager for Caribbean and Events, Christopher Gustave.
Dr Hilaire said: “We are delighted to look back on the destination with Caribbean Airlines and look forward to welcoming our returning nationals and visitors from Trinidad and Tobago. The Caribbean market is important to us and is one of our biggest source markets for visitors to St Lucia. Having you back will definitely give you a lot of taste. I’m sure our smaller properties will be delighted and we appreciate the ease of transport between our islands.”
Garvin Medera, CEO of Caribbean Airlines, said: “Caribbean Airlines is delighted to resume weekly service to St Lucia, one of our beloved markets. The enthusiastic welcome we received is encouraging and we look forward to working closely with the SLTA to connect St Lucia with the region and beyond. The Caribcation campaign will stimulate demand, which will be good news for all stakeholders.”
