Delta Airlines, the US largest carrier, will be adding additional flights into the VC
Bird International Airport for the upcoming winter months.
Both the Minister of Tourism, Charles Max Fernandez and CEO of the Antigua
and Barbuda Tourism Authority, Colin C. James are said to be very elated with this
development according to a release from the ABTA.
Minister Fernandez, said, "The heightened demand for Antigua and Barbuda is
evident, and we are pleased to see airlines like Delta, confidently boosting their
services to the V.C. Bird International Airport as our US market continues to show
the most expansion”.
Accordingly, Minister Fernandez feels that the surge in travelers choosing to visit
Antigua and Barbuda is a direct result of new accommodations and a robust
marketing campaign by the tourism offices and stakeholders.
For his part, CEO James, expressed his satisfaction with legacy carrier Delta's new
“Delta Airlines will commence daily flights from Atlanta International Airport
from December 7, 2024, until January 7, 2025. Delta will return to its twice-
weekly service on Tuesdays and Saturdays following this period.
"Most notably, we are excited that starting January 11, 2025, Delta will introduce
weekly service from John F. Kennedy International (JFK) in New York to V.C.
Bird International,” said James.
James further emphasized, "The launch of the Delta service from the large JFK hub
is a major development for the destination. The New York tri-state area remains
the strongest catchment area within our US market. With Delta now operating from
JFK, we are providing another airlift option for travelers from the tri-state area
seeking to experience Antigua and Barbuda."
Delta's expanded flight frequency, combined with the increased flight service from
other US carriers for the summer and winter months, will enhance accessibility to
the destination from the United States.
