The Saint Lucia Tourist Board is welcoming increased flights and special fares to the island from Atlanta on Delta Air Lines.
The carrier is increasing service between Atlanta's Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport (ATL) and Saint Lucia's Hewanorra International Airport (UVF) from seven to 10 flights per week.
Saint Lucia's Director of Tourism Louis Lewis said in a written statement, "We welcome the additional airlift to the island. Delta's Atlanta hub provides connections for passengers to our island from the east and west coast, making the island even more accessible."
Effective May 12, Delta will offer a special $488 round-trip fare between Atlanta and Saint Lucia. The fare is valid only for travel between May 19 and July 31. Tickets must be purchased by May 31.
