BASSETERRE, St Kitts, Friday August 5, 2016 – United Airlines plans to expand its Saturday service between the airline’s New York/Newark gateway airport, Liberty International Airport (EWR) and St Kitts (SKB).
It will recommence service on November 19, 2016, and will fly throughout the winter, summer and fall in 2017. “I am very pleased that we will be receiving additional flights from United Airlines,” said Lindsay Grant, minister of tourism, international trade, industry and commerce.
“The extension of United’s service will significantly increase capacity into the Federation from the New York metro area, a primary market for visitors to St Kitts.”
United will operate 50 percent more flights between EWR and SKB and will begin its winter season early this year on November 19.
United will operate Saturday-only service between EWR and SKB: United will continue to utilize a 737-800 aircraft with capacity ranging from 154 to 166 seats for these flights. Those flights will complement existing non-stop airlift into St Kitts from North America, providing more convenient options for travel to St Kitts.
