Saint Lucia Gears up to Welcome an Increase in Visitor Arrivals from Trinidad

(Castries January 28, 2022)- Tourism between Saint Lucia and Trinidad is back with the destination gearing up to receive even more visitors, with additional travel options.

British Airways, tour operators and brand Saint Lucia are enthusiastic about the resumption of service between Saint Lucia (UVF) and Port of Spain (POS). The service currently operates a winter schedule on Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays, and Sundays. In the summer period, the service will increase to five weekly flights.

This British Airways service will contribute hundreds more seats to the destination affording tour operators the opportunity to book group seating as well as purchase seats in advance.

“The Trinidadian market is on a steady trajectory towards a full recovery and with the resumption of service from British Airways, we anticipate even more arrivals from this source market. Tour operators have begun tailoring attractive packages thereby increasing demand, which we look forward to, especially within the Easter period,” said Christopher Gustave – Marketing Manager for the Caribbean Region, and Events at the Saint Lucia Tourism Authority (SLTA).

Data indicates that there is demand for travel in Trinidad, which has served as the second-largest source market within the Caribbean context. The strong appeal of brand Saint Lucia and our similarities in culture integrate a great movement with our people, who are always eager to welcome our Caribbean family.

British Airways’ Caribbean Commercial Manager- Diane Corrie said: “As an extension to British Airways’ route from London, this summer the airline will be operating five flights weekly between Trinidad and the beautiful island of Saint Lucia, famed for its amazing snorkeling, idyllic beaches, and great resorts. Now is the perfect opportunity to book your summer holiday or visit family and friends – just a short hour’s flight away. Visit ba.com to book.”

Caribbean Airlines also operates a twice-weekly service to the destination on Mondays and Fridays.
