The St. Kitts Tourism Authority has announced that United Airlines will launch inaugural nonstop service from its New York hub at Newark Liberty International Airport (EWR) to St. Kitts, beginning December 19, 2015.
The flights will operate weekly on Saturdays through April 30, 2016.
The schedule for these flights is as follows:
Flight Depart Arrive
UA 1925 EWR 9:00am SKB 2:10pm
UA 1925 SKB 3:05pm EWR 6:35pm
United will fly a 737-800 aircraft with capacity ranging from 154 to 166 seats for these flights. These flights will complement existing nonstop airlift into St. Kitts from North America, providing more convenient options for travelers to get to St. Kitts during the peak winter travel season.
"The launch of this new service from United is very significant for St. Kitts, particularly as many of our new hotel developments including Belle Mont Farm at Kittitian Hill, Park Hyatt St. Kitts at Christophe Harbour, Koi Resort & Residences and Embassy Suites by Hilton St. Kitts are open or opening within the next few years," said the Hon. Minister of Tourism, International Trade, Industry and Commerce Mr. Lindsay F.P. Grant.
