UK carrier Tui Airways begins its winter weekly direct flight from London Gatwick to Hewanorra International Airport on November 3, 2020.
Along with the four BA flights, the Tuesday departure increases ease of access from the UK with five flights a week. This comes at a time when Saint Lucia has been commended as one of the safest destinations for winter sun due to recording the lowest Covid rates in the region.
The island has welcomed more than 8,500 visitors since reopening at the beginning of June, with the UK figures growing as confidence increases and airfares are attractively competitive. Tui flights are available from £400pp in November.
Minister of Tourism Honourable Dominic Fedee said “We are thrilled to be welcoming back our colleagues at Tui for another winter season. The weekly flight to Saint Lucia means that visitors have more choice and flexibility with their travel which is paramount in these challenging times.”
