Seaborne Airlines, one of the fastest growing airlines in the Caribbean, announced that it will introduce non-stop service between the carrier's hub in San Juan's Luis Munoz Marin International Airport and Antigua and Barbuda's newly inaugurated V.C. Bird International Airport, effective December 13.
The service will represent the only non-stop connection between Puerto Rico and Antigua and Barbuda.
The flights will provide convenient connecting opportunities to Seaborne's sizable portfolio of airline connecting partners at San Juan Luis Munoz Marin International Airport.
In tandem with connections to other Seaborne flights in the Caribbean, and connecting partner airlines Air Europa, American Airlines, Delta Airlines, JetBlue Airways and United Airlines, passengers will be able to connect to 33 destinations in the Americas and Europe.
All flights will be operated by 34-seat Saab 340 aircraft. The plane operates with two pilots and a flight attendant, and offers inflight service, a roomy cabin with overhead bins and other amenities.
Service will operate four times weekly on a year-round basis. To celebrate the new non-stop service, Seaborne Airlines is offering a promotional fare of $128 each way, inclusive of all taxes and fees.
Flights will depart San Juan on Mondays, Thursdays, Saturdays and Sundays at 12:45 p.m and arrive in Antigua at 2:20 p.m. Returning flights depart Antigua at 3:05 p.m. and arrive in San Juan at 4:40 p.m.
