CASTRIES, St. Lucia – A new airline, offering direct service between St. Lucia and Dominica three times a week, has started operations here.

InterCaribbean Airways made its inaugural flight into the George FL Charles Airport on Mar. 29 from Dominica.

Lyndon Gardiner, chairman of the new airline, said it is hoped the carrier will be able to connect the entire Caribbean in the future.

The airline uses the 30-seater Embraer EMB120 aircraft for the St. Lucia-Dominica route on Sunday, Monday and Thursday from the Douglas-Charles Airport, while departing from St. Lucia on Monday, Tuesday and Friday.

The service provides onward connections to the northern Caribbean, including the British Virgin Islands and Cuba, with an additional direct service to St. Croix.

Jamaica, Puerto Rico and the Dominican Republic are scheduled to be added to the roster.

The new InterCaribbean Airways flights allow travelers to make two-stop connections to Kingston, Jamaica and Nassau, The Bahamas.
