British Airways Adds More Flights To Saint Lucia

Press Release:– British Airways has announced an increase in services from St. Lucia, adding two flights for a total of nine per week to London Gatwick Airport. The flights, scheduled for summer, July – August 2020, will provide an increase of 672 seats per week on the route.

This continues a trend of expanding service from the island. The airline has planned to add additional capacity from Hewanorra Airport to London Gatwick for winter 2019-2020. This is on top of the already substantial capacity increases over the last 12 months, complemented by a huge investment in the airline’s onboard product.

British Airways Commercial Manager Caribbean, Diane Corrie said: “Already, this summer, passengers to and from St. Lucia are enjoying a significant increase in in the number of seats on our service.

British Airways is fully committed to strengthening and expanding service to the island and contributing to the growth and sustainability of tourism.”

British Airways flies daily from St. Lucia and is the island’s longest serving airline from the UK. With its first service on July 20, 1971, British Airways has been connecting friends and families to and from St. Lucia and the UK for nearly 50 years.

Three levels of service are offered on the airline’s flights – Club World, World Traveller Plus and World Traveller. As part of British Airway’s £6.5 billion customer investment, the aircraft feature new seats in World Traveller and World Traveller Plus, along with product enhancements such as larger high definition in-flight entertainment systems, in-seat power outlets, high speed Wi-Fi, enhanced catering, and new soft furnishings in World Traveller Plus and Club World, including luxurious new White Company bedding in Club.

For travelers from St. Lucia, BA Holidays deals in London are available as well.  Until August 31, travelers can enjoy a minimum of 15% off a selection of London hotels when booked with a flight. Travel must be taken from January 1, 2020 to December 31, 2020.


  1. When one horse walks away from a patch of grass,another hungry one turnes up.How could we ever know what really is going on? Virgin is still there till next year,and next year is far away.

  2. Lucians need to read so this deceitful government do not fool you. The release would have you think that this is permanent. This is ONLY from JULY 4th 2020 to AUGUST 29th 2020. This is peak summer period in the UK and British Airways are just maximizing the opportunity at extra high prices. Stop with the deception Dominic….BA would have now known what their demand at that time is since people are already booking holidays for next year and as such would need the extra flights seeing VA won’t be flying. Stop pretending like you negotiated this when it is the airline trying to meet demand for the summer peak period.
