Battle for the JFK route !!!! Destination St.Kitts is once again showing why it is the fastest growing Tourism destination in the Caribbean. With new hotels and a plethora of new and upgraded attractions St.Kitts-Nevis’ reputation is rapidly growing as a premier Caribbean destination. Earlier this year it was named as a Marquee destinaion by the FCCA after reaching 1 Million cruise passengers in one season. With Cruise Tourism booming the stayover sector is following suit . So much is the interest and growth in the destination two major US Airlines are literally in a battle for a prime route between JFK and RLB on St.Kitts. The route had been traditionally dominated by AA . However Delta is now challenging American Airlines in St. Kitts on that route. A route AA has dominated since it started it in 2007. Flights are literally scheduled minutes apart in departure and arrival with AA using the 757 and Delta using the 737.
The Hardest working and most successful Tourism Minister in the Caribbean the Hon. Lindsay Grant almost on a weekly basis announces expanded or new airlift and airlines to St.Kitts. Recently he announced that Sun Country Airlines will be starting flights to St.Kitts from the Midwestern region of the US. Earlier he also announced additional flights into St.Kitts from North America by United Airlines , Delta and AA .
The success in the Tourism industry for St.Kitts-Nevis has been phenomenal over the last 3-4 years under the leadership of Hon. Grant . Grant has been praised and is labelled as the most successful and hardest working Tourism Minister in the Caribbean.
The additional flights to the island will see the exponential increase in stayover visitors at the now expanded hotel room stock with the opening of the new Park Hyatt in addition to the traditional Four Seasons, St.Kitts Marriott among others. The Six Senses is expected to break ground shortly and the Ramada now under construction are both expected to significantly enhance and expand the hotel room stock on the island and thus further increase the demand for flights.
