Tourism boss Henderson welcomes Sunrise Airways

St. Kitts and Nevis’ MP Marsha Henderson, is working hard to keep her 2023/24 title of regional Tourism Minister of the Year with the announcement that the country will soon welcome a new airline.

Sunrise Airways, which is based in Haiti, confirmed that it will operate flights to Robert L. Bradshaw International Airport beginning on 25th May, 2024.

“From May 25th to June 23rd, we will have Antigua to St. Kitts flights operating everyday, save and except Tuesdays, via our new airline, Sunrise Airways. After this initial period, the flights will operate daily. The aircraft to be operated will be the Embraer-120 with 30 seats,” Minister Henderson explained.

Sunrise Airways’ fleet of twelve aircraft also offer flights between Antigua and Dominica and Antigua and St. Lucia which will benefit travellers making southern connections.

The airline’s Chief Executive Officer and Chairman, Philippe Bayard, said the new connections signal “a  new day for intra-regional air travel within the Eastern Caribbean”.

“All of us at Sunrise Airways have cherished each new route that we’ve inaugurated over the 12-year history of our airline. This latest expansion, though, is extra special as it brings the mission we started in the western Caribbean, to better connect our islands under our One Caribbean concept, to the eastern Caribbean in the biggest way yet,” said Bayard earlier this week commenting on his family owned airline’s largest expansion to date.

“With two rotations per day, our new Antigua, Dominica, and St. Kitts flights offer travellers in those markets tremendous flexibility,” he said

The regional airline also provides services to Guadeloupe, the Dominican Republic, St. Maarten, Panama, Turks and Caicos, Jamaica and Puerto Rico. It is also the only airline which currently offers commercial service between Haiti and Miami with flights out of the international airport in Cap-Haïtien.
