New weekly flights from London to St.Lucia
Thomson Airline will be flying a new 288 seater aircraft between London Gatwick and St. Lucia from May to December 2017. This could add over 8,500 additional seats to the island for this corresponding period.
St. Lucian Tourism officials are optimistic that this move will have a ripple effect on St. Lucia’s economy. ‘…This flight took in roughly 300 new passengers, and if we can sustain those numbers every week then we’re looking at over 15,000 new passengers to Saint Lucia over the next year,” said Deputy Chairperson of the Saint Lucia Tourist Board Leathon Khan. “That, by any measure, is very significant, and is good news for our taxi drivers, hotels, and tour operators.”
The total number of seats from the United Kingdom to St. Lucia has increased by 6% over 2016 figures. Now it is even easier than ever to hop over to view your dream property!
