The American Airlines flight from John F. Kennedy International in New York and the Delta Airlines flight from Atlanta into St. Kitts’ Robert L. Bradshaw International Airport will provide convenient travel options for nationals and visitors.
In anticipation of the increased need for airlift to support the additional rooms and demand for first-class seats, the new non-stop service will commence to St. Kitts from JFK on American Airlines in November 18th this year and from Atlanta on Delta in February next year.
Travel agencies are of the view that the flights will provide more convenient travel options for visitors and nationals from two top affluent markets, while simultaneously allowing for connections to these flights from additional United States and international gateways, particularly those in the Upper Mid-West region of the US and from Canada.
The American Airlines Flight to St. Kitts will operate twice weekly, on Wednesdays and Sundays, from Kennedy Airport, departing 10:45 a.m. and arriving at Bradshaw Airport in St. Kitts at 3:55 p.m. The return flight will depart 5:05 p.m. from St. Kitts and arrive at JFK, New York at 8:30 p.m.
Delta Air Lines flight DL373 will depart Atlanta at 11:15 a.m. eastern daylight-saving time and arrive into St. Kitts’ Robert L. Bradshaw International Airport at 4:05 p.m. local time. The return flight DL372 will depart St. Kitts at 4:55 p.m. and arrive into Atlanta at 8:05 p.m. To start this weekly service, Delta will use a 150 seat, 737-800 Boeing aircraft with 16 first class seats and 134 economy seats.
American Airlines also operate a direct service from Miami International and American Eagle from San Juan, Puerto Rico.
