The Atlanta-based Delta Airlines is to increase the number of flight to St. Kitts’ Robert L. Bradshaw International Airport later this year.

Delta, which currently operates a flight from Atlanta, will add a second weekly non-stop flight from Atlanta’s Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport.  The second flight will operate on Wednesdays, beginning on December 23, 2009, complementing Delta’s Saturday non-stop flight.

Delta Air Lines flight DL573 will depart Atlanta at 9:40 a.m. and arrive into St. Kitts’ Robert L. Bradshaw International Airport at 2:35 p.m.  The return flight DL574 will depart St. Kitts at 3:35 p.m. and arrive into Atlanta at 7:14 p.m.

These flight times allow for convenient round-trip connections from over 90 airports in the U.S. and Canada. Delta will use a 124-seat, 737-700 Boeing aircraft with 12 business class seats and 112 economy seats for this flight.

“The addition of a second non-stop flight by Delta is very significant for St. Kitts,” said St. Kitst and Nevis Minister of Tourism, Sen. the Hon. Richard “Ricky” Skerritt.

“Particularly in the current global economic conditions, the fact that Delta is increasing service demonstrates confidence in the St. Kitts tourism product.  It will be a valuable complement to our overall existing airlift and provide greater flexibility for travelers via the world’s largest airline hub,” said Sen. Skerritt.
