Friday, May 22, 2009 – The Saint Lucia Tourist Board is pleased to announce the addition of two new British Airways flights into Hewanorra International Airport this winter, which will further enhance the island’s airlift capacity out of the United Kingdom (UK). The two new British Airways flights from London, are scheduled for Wednesdays and Fridays, adding to the existing three flights on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Sundays.

In a statement released today, Minister with responsibility for Tourism and Civil Aviation, Senator Allan Chastanet, remarked: “This is welcome news for Saint Lucia at a time when we are undertaking the re-branding of the island. With hotels like Cap Maison, the Landings, Bay Gardens Resorts and renovations to Almond Resorts and Coconut Bay, we see the additional flights as an opportune time for increased house counts. We are also encouraged by the strengthening of the pound which will have multiplier benefits for the real estate industry in Saint Lucia.”

Similar sentiments were expressed by Tourism Director Louis Lewis: “We are extremely excited to have this additional direct service coming out of the UK, which is our most important market by virtue of its bed night contributions. These extra flights out of London are the result of successful negotiations between British Airways and the Saint Lucia Tourist Board,” Lewis said.

All flights will come out of Gatwick into Hewanorra from October 2009, but will likely remain throughout the 2010 summer months.
