"Ek is baie bly om die toevoeging van hierdie mid-week vlug deur American Airlines te verwelkom," het die Hon gesê. Mnr. Lindsay FP Grant, Minister van Toerisme, Internasionale Handel, Nywerheid en Handel. 'Dit is wonderlik om hierdie bykomende diens van 'n gewaardeerde vennoot te ontvang, wat besoekers sowel as Diaspora meer maniere bied om vanaf ons primêre bronmark na die eiland te kom. Dit is 'n bewys van die vertroue van Amerikaners in ons toerismeproduk. ”

Vanaf 18 Desember 2019 sal American Airlines die vlug gebruik met 'n 176-sitplek Boeing 757 met 16 sakeklasstoele tot Februarie, en dan 'n Boeing 160 met 738 sitplekke met 16 sakeklasstoele met die volgende skedule: -

Racquel Brown, CEO of the St. Kitts Tourism Authority, added, “The timing of this additional flight is particularly significant, as American just launched summer non-stop service from Dallas this past weekend and expanded twice-daily service from Miami International Airport (MIA) to 5 days a week in 2017. The addition of mid-week service year-round from the New York metropolitan area indicates a growth in the marketplace concurrent with our marketing initiatives. This new service is part of our specific strategy to grow our tourism industry by building out airlift from select target gateways with our air partners to support the destination’s expanding hotel product.”

American Airlines is the carrier operating the most seats into St. Kitts. In addition to the new Wednesday non-stop service from JFK, American also serves St. Kitts non-stop on Saturdays from JFK and Charlotte Douglas International Airport (CLT) year-round. The carrier also flies to St. Kitts non-stop on Saturdays from Dallas Fort Worth International Airport (DFW) in the summer, with service having just launched May 25, 2019. American further provides year-round, non-stop daily service to St. Kitts from MIA, with twice-daily flights operating five times weekly (Wednesday through Sunday).

American’s new Wednesday JFK flight provides extra capacity to carry passengers to island, thereby supporting potential air arrivals growth for St. Kitts for 2020. Already for the first four months of 2019, St. Kitts is reporting a systemwide increase in air passenger arrivals of +14.5% as compared to the same period in 2018. From all North American carriers, St. Kitts’ air passenger arrivals increased +17.2% for January through April 2019 as compared to the same period in 2018.
