Winair to Launch Much-Needed Service to Dominica in June

PHILIPSBURG, St. Maarten – It’s been a well-known fact that the main obstacle keeping Dominica from being a competing force in Caribbean tourism was flights.

But as of June, flying to Dominica will get a little easier due to a new connection from St. Maarten on Windward Island Airways, commonly known as Winair.

As part of our week-long coverage of the ninth annual SMART tradeshow in St. Maarten, Travel Agent sat down with Claudio Buncamper, vice president of marketing, sales and customer service, and learned that the carrier will bring 35,000 inbound and outbound seats to Dominca beginning June 14. This will include daily flights from St. Maarten to Dominica as well as flights from St. Maarten to Tortola and St. Lucia.

The fights to Dominica are so important because now New Yorkers can fly direct to St. Maarten and hop on a short flight to Dominica.
