British Airways Solution for St. Lucia Travel from the UK
Last month, news that Virgin Airlines would stop sending flights to Saint Lucia in 2020 was a cause of concern. Virgin Atlantic is still proposing to pull out, but British Airways is going to fill the void. British Airways announced the company would provide two more flights, per week, to St. Lucia. The new flights will begin in July and run until August 29, 2020. Three classes of service are offered, with about 600 seats available to UK travelers.
Prime Minister Allen Chastanet is happy British Airlines is willing to add new flights to help the growing visitor arrival from the UK. Dominic Fedee is also happy for the continued relationship between the airlines given Virgin Atlantics pull out. The arrangement of more seats on a weekly basis will help benefit the island and the tourists.
The flights are direct from London to the island. British Airways currently has seven flights leaving, weekly, to the island. The two new flights will bring their flights up to nine choices on a weekly basis. In addition to the direct flights there are 14 British Airways flights that connect London, St. Lucia, Trinidad, and Grenada.
British Airways has plenty of Caribbean links to ensure their residents are able to fly from the cold and rainy UK to the warm, beautiful islands. St. Lucia is just one option for visitors and often considered the jewel of the Caribbean.
The island offers crystal blue waters for diving and snorkeling, a hike up a volcanic mountain, rainforest, zip lining, and several intimate villas for a private stay. Guests can travel year-round to the island, although late summer and fall is hurricane season. A lovely time to travel is spring to get away from the rain and cool weather in the UK.
