Antigua and Barbuda recently welcomed a fourth airline into the destination, just three months after the opening of the new terminal at the V.C. Bird International Airport.
 

Seaborne Airlines launched its non-stop service between its hub in San Juan’s Luis Munoz Marin International Airport and Antigua on Sunday, December 13 with a 34-seat Saab 340 aircraft. The inaugural flight departed San Juan at 12:45 pm, and arrived into Antigua at 2:20 pm.

Flights from Antigua to San Juan depart at 3:05 pm and arrive at 4:40 pm.
 
V.C. Bird International Airport’s growing portfolio of passenger airlines maintains Antigua and Barbuda’s position as a major hub in the Eastern Caribbean.

“Our mandate is to grow airlift and to enhance our existing strategic positioning," said Asot Michael, Antigua and Barbuda's minister of tourism, in a written release.
 
“JetBlue’s launch into Antigua and Barbuda earlier in December, and today’s arrival of Seaborne, is especially significant, due to the codeshare agreement signed between the two airlines in October," he continued. "What this codeshare means to the everyday traveler is that they will be able to travel from JetBlue serviced territories in the United States, to Antigua seamlessly, with one ticket, one check-in and reliable baggage transfer.”
