The CEO of the St. Kitts Tourism Authority is counting down the days until non-stop Air Canada flights to the destination take off.
“Airlift is very, very critical to us,” said Ellison ‘Tommy’ Thompson. “We’re very happy that they’re coming back again for the fall.”
Weekly service will resume Nov. 5, 2022 and run through to April 29, 2023.
“With the reintroduction of the flight with Air Canada, we see that as an opportunity to rebuild the Canadian market,” he said. “It’s always been quite strong for us and we’re going to make sure we’re promoting it extensively.”
Meanwhile, Thompson said the cruise industry “was the lifeline for St. Kitts” after the pandemic with 336 cruise ship calls bringing in 388,493 passengers.
St. Kitts now allows both vaccinated and unvaccinated travellers to visit, which Thompson noted “has been a real boost to the island of St. Kitts.”
