For the first time in the island’s history, Air Canada will serve St. Kitts for a full six months during the 2018-2019 peak season.
The non-stop Saturday flights from Toronto will operate from Nov. 3 through April 27, 2019.
From Nov. 3 through Dec. 10, Air Canada will operate a 136-seat Airbus A319-100 Rouge aircraft with 124 economy class and 12 business class seats for the non-stop Saturday flights. From Dec. 15 through April 27, 2019, the carrier will operate a 200-seat Airbus A321-200 Rouge aircraft with 184 economy class and 16 business class seats.
“Air Canada’s decision to expand service into St. Kitts is a testament to the strength of our growing tourism sector,” said Racquel Brown, CEO of the St. Kitts Tourism Authority. “As our airlift from North America expands to accommodate our recently announced new hotel developments and upgrades to existing hotel product which include all-inclusive options, Canadians now have a full range of vacation choices available. This is truly is a complement to our existing North American airlift and gives us significantly increased capacity for this season and beyond.”
