XL to service St Lucia

LONDON, England, January 31, 2007 – XL Airways, a leading charter operator in the UK and part of the Avion Group listed in Iceland, is set to enter the St Lucia market with flights beginning in the latter part of this year.

The St Lucia flights on XL are set to begin from November 6, 2007 from London’s Gatwick airport.

“St Lucia will become our sixth destination to the Caribbean and we are rapidly growing,” commented Martin Lock, managing director of XL.com. “In the last year we have launched Antigua, Grenada, Tobago, St Kitts & Nevis and we won’t be stopping here. In fact we are already planning a full holiday program of hotel choices to support these flights.”

XL.com is the online portal for the XL leisure group enabling its customers to have the complete flexibility of booking flights, hotels, and package holidays. St Lucia will become the newest edition to the XL family, with flights on sale soon. XL.com already features Barbados, Antigua, Tobago, Grenada, St Kitts & Nevis. (Copyright Hardbeatnews.com)
