The Saint Lucia Tourism Authority is leading a February 1-6, 2023 sales mission to Guyana in preparation for the inaugural flight with British Airways on March 27, 2023.
The mission aims to tap into the vastly expanding Guyana market to promote Saint Lucia’s tourism and attract more visitors.
The mission is led by Lorine Charles-St. Jules, CEO of the Saint Lucia Tourism Authority, and includes representatives and service providers of the Saint Lucia Hospitality & Tourism Association.
The mission will partner with the Guyana Tourism Board to help promote the flight and its advantages to potential travellers from Guyana and aims to increase air connectivity between Saint Lucia and Guyana, with the goal of stimulating the tourism sector on both sides.
The mission will include meetings with stakeholders in the tourism industry, diaspora leaders, marketing activities, and promotional activities including a showcase at Giftland Mall on Saturday February 4, 2023.
This forms part of the Saint Lucia Tourism Authority’s strategy to increase tourism in the Caribbean region and to promote Saint Lucia as a preferred tourist destination.
We recognize this as an opportune time for our islands to capitalize on the twice weekly service from London’s Gatwick International Airport to the Cheddi Jagan International Airport in Guyana, via Saint Lucia.

Sort the South of the island out as this is the first sight tourists see……….then this might work.
I like the collaboration effort but both countries have alot of work to do with the security aspect and to secure visitors. Guyanese bandits are rootless and fearless. While here in St. Lucia the bandits are still in primary and secondary schools snatching and running off with tourist belongings. Last Friday they were well over 10 snatch and run incident took place at the gros Islet Friday night lime. Witnesses know the kids who carry out those crime but refuse to take action. Watch what will happen in the near future with those same kids.
