United Airlines will fly a second weekly nonstop flight from its New York hub at Newark Liberty International Airport to St. Kitts for the first time in the Caribbean island’s history. From January 9 to March 6 of this year, the airline company will conduct nine scheduled round-trip non-stop Wednesday flights between the two desinations.

Flights will leave Newark at 8:35 a.m. and will arrive at Robert L. Bradshaw International Airport at 2:05 p.m. Return flights from St. Kitts depart at 3:05 p.m. and arrive in New Jersey at 7:07 p.m. Note: Flights are listed in local time and schedules are subject to change.
