In anticipation of a strong rebound in travel demand from the United States this winter, tourism officials have announced that Caribbean Airlines will begin twice weekly non-stop service from JFK to Antigua and Barbuda on Tuesdays and Fridays. 

The Caribbean Airlines service will begin on December 14 and is expected to boost last minute holiday bookings and assist returning nationals looking for last minute deals. Service will originate from Port of Spain to V.C. Bird International Airport and return service from New York’s JFK.

A fare sale launched today by Caribbean Airlines will offer a special one way rate of 189USD from JFK to Antigua and 209USD one way from Antigua to JFK in addition to taxes and service fees. Caribbean Airlines will offer competitive rates including a 10% discount for seniors and children and a baggage allowance of 2 pieces not exceeding 50 pounds each.  The airline will also feature some creative pricing options on their return one- way fares.

Tourism Minister John Maginley welcomes the prospect of additional air service to Antigua and Barbuda at a time when all signs point to an increase in travel from the United States. “I am particularly pleased with the timing of this service, since it will facilitate smooth connections from almost all North American gateways as well as European markets such as France, Italy and Germany.  This aligns with our strategic vision of providing greater access from some of our key markets.”

Flight 428 will depart Antigua at 8:45 a.m. and arrive at JFK at 11:50 a.m. The return Flight 429 will leave JFK at 1:55p.m. and arrive at V.C. Bird International at 6:55pm.
