New flights to Dominica improve air access for UK visitors

A new service from Carib Aviation will make getting to the Caribbean island of Dominica considerably easier for UK travellers.Starting on 26 May, the new daily services will offer non-stop flights between St Lucia’s Hewanorra Airport (UVF) and Dominica’s Canefield Airport (DCF), which is situated just ten minutes north of the capital Roseau.

The flight timetable has been designed to allow connections between the Carib Aviation service with long-haul flights from and to the UK. Adding to the convenience should be the expected pre-clearance by Dominica Immigration and Customs. An in-transit lounge for passengers connecting on to the Nature Island is also among the comforts of the new route.

Until now, the only same-day routes into Dominica from the UK have landed at Melville Hall airport, with Antigua the most convenient hub. Melville Hall lies in the northeast of Dominica and is around an hour and a half’s drive from Roseau, so the new flights from St Lucia make a convenient alternative for those visitors with accommodation in the south of the island.

Twin Otter aircraft will operate on the Hewanorra-Canefield route.
