Seaborne Airlines resumes service to Antigua-Barbuda
Published on July 25, 2017 Email To Friend    Print Version


ST JOHN’S, Antigua -- Seaborne Airlines resumed its non-stop service between the carrier’s hub in San Juan, Puerto Rico, and Antigua and Barbuda on Friday. The service represents the only non-stop connection between Antigua and Barbuda and Puerto Rico.

Passengers from over 30 destinations in the Americas and Europe will be able to reach Antigua’s V.C. Bird International Airport with a single stop at San Juan’s Luis Muñoz Marin International Airport through connections with Seaborne Airlines.

In addition to the Seaborne flights providing convenient connecting opportunities for visitors, Antiguans and Barbudans will also have access to Seaborne’s sizable portfolio of airline partners at San Juan Luis Munoz Marin International Airport.

Coupled with connections to other Seaborne flights in the Caribbean, and partner airlines Air Europa, American Airlines, Delta Air Lines, JetBlue Airways, and United Airlines, and Vieques Air Link, passengers will be able to connect to 33 destinations in the Americas and Europe.

All flights will be operated by 34-seat Saab 340 aircraft. The Saab 340 features a roomy cabin with overhead bins, snack and beverage service, a restroom, a 50lb baggage allowance per person, and operates with two pilots and a flight attendant.

The San Juan-Antigua service will operate four times weekly on a year-round basis. As of July 21, Seaborne will operate four non-stop flights per week between San Juan and Antigua and Barbuda.

Marketing consultant for the Caribbean region, Charmaine Spencer, said, “This service provides Antiguans and Barbudans with more options and connectivity to San Juan, US Virgin Islands and the mainland USA. The Antigua and Barbuda Tourism Authority and Seaborne Airlines have plans to collaborate on a number of marketing activities for the remainder of 2017.”
