The Robert L. Bradshaw International Airport welcomed Seaborne Airlines to the Federation with a special reception on Tuesday 21st January, 2014.
The aircraft will operate daily services between Luis Muñoz Marín International Airport, San Juan, Puerto Rico and St. Kitts’ Robert L. Bradshaw International Airport, with continuing service to Nevis’ Vance W. Amory International Airport.
The Minister of Tourism and International Transport, the Honourable Richard Skerritt, is exceptionally pleased to have Seaborne provide daily service to the Federation.
“Seaborne is building out an exciting new flight network between Puerto Rico and the neighboring islands,” Minister Skerritt said. “This San Juan service will also add valuable capacity to the system of air bridges we have been developing between St. Kitts & Nevis and various international source markets.”
Director of the Puerto Rico Tourism Company, Ingrid I. Revera Rocafort, said the new Seaborne routes will strengthen Puerto Rico’s place as a Caribbean five-star destination, with excellent air access infrastructure and flight options.
“We are certain that the flights from St. Kitts and Nevis will make Puerto Rico even more attractive to residents and visitors of the Caribbean region by providing convenient options that fit their schedule and budget,” Rocafort said.
