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.

Strategic Network Expansion in Latin America
Star Alliance, the way the Earth connects, will be expanding its presence in Latin America following the unanimous approval by its Chief Executive Board (CEB), to accept both Avianca-TACA and Copa Airlines as future member airlines.
“On behalf of the Chief Executive Board, it gives me great pleasure to invite Avianca-TACA and Copa Airlines to join the Star Alliance network. The addition of these two quality airline groups concludes a strategic process which increases the Alliance’s footprint in the vibrant, growing economies of Latin America,” Jaan Albrecht, CEO Star Alliance said. “The aviation landscape in this region is changing rapidly and alliances are playing an ever bigger role as Latin America continues to develop.”
The combined network of the two airline groups gives Star Alliance a more prominent footprint in Central America, the Caribbean and the northern and western regions of South America, as well as additional direct connections between Latin America and cities in Europe. Star Alliance passengers will in future have access to a large range of new destinations and flights connecting through the Copa Airlines hubs in Panama City (Panama) and Bogota (Colombia) and the Avianca-TACA hubs in Bogota (Colombia), San Salvador (El Salvador), Lima (Peru) and San Jose (Costa Rica).
