InterCaribbean Flights To St Kitts – Nevis

Due to the growing demand for entry into St. Kitts and Nevis via InterCaribbean Airways (ICA), the St. Kitts Tourism Authority has successfully negotiated an increase in aircraft capacity from 30 to 50 seats, starting the fourth week of May.

The service from Grantley Adams International Airport in Barbados began on Sunday, March 12, 2023, using a 30-seater Embraer-120 aircraft. This service operates three times a week—on Sundays, Wednesdays, and Fridays—providing one-stop connectivity via Barbados to Grenada, St. Vincent and the Grenadines, Saint Lucia, Dominica, Georgetown, Guyana, and soon Port of Spain.

During a press conference on May 18, Honourable Marsha Henderson, Minister of Tourism, stated that the flight has been consistently filled to capacity since it began. She emphasized the need to accommodate more travelers due to the high demand.

“Next week, we are increasing the flight to a 50-seater ATR, allowing more people the opportunity to visit our destination,” said Minister Henderson. “We are pleased to announce that we have not spent a dollar on the Minimum Revenue Guarantee (MRG) with InterCaribbean Airways.”

A minimum revenue guarantee is a sum paid to airlines if they do not reach a set income goal, as agreed upon in their contract.
