BRITISH AIRWAYS LAUNCHES SCHEDULED SERVICE TO ST KITTS - RLB INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT
Basseterre, St. Kitts (Tuesday, October 07, 2008): The St. Kitts Tourism Authority today announced the launch of a new British Airways (BA) scheduled Saturday service from London Gatwick Airport to St Kitts RLB International Airport. The introduction of the once weekly direct service from London Gatwick to St Kitts, tagged with Antigua, will be the first time an established UK scheduled carrier has operated a regular service to St. Kitts.
Commencing on Saturday 10th January 2009, BA will use a three class, 280 seat Boeing 777 aircraft with 40 Club World seats, 24 World Traveller Plus and 216 World Traveller seats. This new weekly flight by BA not only increases capacity to the destination, but the inclusion of the Club World seats also means that it is now easier for upmarket UK tour operators to sell both St. Kitts & Nevis. The London, Gatwick service will also connect to a wide array of UK and European cities served by BA.
Commenting on the introduction of this new airlift service, the St Kitts & Nevis Minister of State in the Ministry of Tourism, Culture and Sports, Senator Ricky Skerritt said, “This timely BA service reinforces and supports a key part of the tourism strategy for St Kitts, which is to increase high end tourism. I applaud BA for expanding its Caribbean itinerary at a time when other airlines have been reducing capacity.”
Seats can be booked from Thursday, October 9, 2009 via www.ba.com
Flights depart LGW at 10.30 and arrive at RLB International at 16.45
Flights depart RLB International at 18.15 and arrive into LGW at 07.50 the following day.
