AIRPORT–InterCaribbean Airways, celebrating its 26th year of continuous service, has started services from St. Maarten to Tortola with onward connections to Santo Domingo, San Juan and Antigua. The airline touched down on Friday morning and was welcomed by Princess Juliana International Airport SXM management.
The flight crew posed for a photo with Acting Minister of Tourism Cornelius de Weever and his staff after the plane landed. The original date of March 22 for start of service to and from St. Maarten was moved forward in response to the challenges of travel to and from Santo Domingo following recent air service interruptions.
The new services will begin immediately from February 10 onward. Travelers in Santo Domingo and St. Maarten can make immediate connections via the Tortola hub with a very short layover en route.
InterCaribbean has been serving the Dominican Republic for more than 15 years, with a current schedule of 19 weekly flights.
“InterCaribbean is pleased to be able to quickly update our St. Maarten start date
to ensure the communities in St. Maarten and in Santo Domingo have available air
service options,” said InterCaribbean CEO Trevor Sadler.
Founded as InterIsland Airways in 1991 by Turks Islander Lyndon R. Gardiner, Chairman of InterCaribbean, the company embarked on adding international destinations and soon the introduction of jet service.
InterCaribbean serves 22 cities. More Information and reservations can be made on the company website www.intercaribbean.com . The airline operates an EMB 120 Twin Otter.
Airport management welcomed the additional airline and thanked it for choosing St. Maarten as an additional route.
