United Airlines to begin flights to St. Kitts and Nevis in December

Flights will operate every Saturday until April 30 next year, complementing the existing non-stop service into St. Kitts from North America, and providing more options for travelers to get to the twin-island federation during the peak winter travel season.

The new route provides additional connections from St. Kitts’ top feeder gateways, including Washington D.C.’s Reagan National Airport and Dulles International Airport, Baltimore/Washington International Airport, Boston Logan International Airport, and Chicago O’Hare International Airport.

“The launch of this new service from United is very significant for St. Kitts, particularly as many of our new hotel developments, including Belle Mont Farm at Kittitian Hill, Park Hyatt St. Kitts at Christophe Harbour, Koi Resort & Residences and Embassy Suites by Hilton St. Kitts, are open or opening within the next few years,” said Minister of Tourism, International Trade, Industry and Commerce Lindsay Grant.

“To support the growth in available room stock, a simultaneous growth of our airlift is required. The northeastern US has historically been our largest source market for visitors, and these new flights also allow for more connections from key gateways in and near this region.”

Minister of Foreign Affairs and Aviation for St. Kitts and Nevis and Deputy Premier of Nevis Mark Brantley said the United Airlines service would be an integral component of the country’s strategy to provide non-stop airlift from its key international gateways.

He said visitor research and stakeholder input had indicated that New Jersey was a very strong market for the federation, and for Nevis in particular.

Director of Leisure Sales for United Airlines Vic Kerckhoff said St. Kitts would be the carrier’s 18th Caribbean destination from its domestic airports.

United will utilize Boeing 737-800 aircraft with seating capacity ranging from 154 to 166 for its Saturday flights to St. Kitts.
