    Until Dominica gets its own international airport, these stop-gap measures will continue in earnest. If the weather is terrible and you miss that connecting flight in Barbados, then what? Who now is responsible for refunding you the ticket cost? People at home don’t understand that when you’re given vacation time at work, you’re expected to return at a certain date without fail.

    For two years straight my family and I have traveled to St. Vincent and Grenadines from New York on Caribbean Airlines. I will have to say, I was pleasantly surprised at how easy the trip was. An international airport plays a crucial role on our travel plans as we refuse to spend two days to try to get to Dominica. There is NO REASON why I shouldn’t get to DA in a day without losing my luggage and every other hassle that comes with it.

    I don’t know why people are getting all twisted about a connecting flight.
    The connection is only 2 hours which people do all the time in the States.

    Tho things that concern me the most about flying into Dominica: 1. overnighting in B’dos or Antigua and 2. The total cost and time of that trip as a result of having to spend the night in one of these islands.

    If that was typical of all the flights going to Dominica, I would have no difficulty flying to DA at least once a year.

    The overnight stay is a huge disincentive for me.

    It is obvious to me that those people who complain about a 2 hour connection do not do much flying. I travel for business in both the US and Canada and connecting flights are typical when flying into most medium sized cities.

    These airlines need to facilitate greater intra island travel. We need to stop relying on international customers. What’s needed is greater travel between the islands at a price that is cost effective to the citizens of these islands.
    We should be able to island hop, weekend stay or have quick mini breaks in any island. This will spur growth and additional developments and investments.

      totally agree with this, but the governments of each country want to kill people with taxes, a ferry system along the entire Caribbean would also be great

    Will the planes be landing on Dominica ? How can it be seamless if the flight is not direct and people may still have to overnight on a different island. Dominica loses out on tourism because people do not want to have to go through conniptions just getting to the island even people born on Dominica do not want to back to visit and spend money because of how hard it is to get there.

      But the thing is. That plane pictured can actually land in dca. Mellville hall. The plane from Columbia with the masks and so on last year landed with no problem and took off. Again so I don’t see why at least twice a month we can get a direct flight from New York or Miami

        it was a cargo flight, they have different regulations and ‘safety’ laws when it’s passenger flights

    • March 24, 2021

      Look more closely. With this particular itinerary you can get there or back in one day; there’s a layover in Barbados but it’s only two or three hours.

        Yes true but look even closer….that flight is in a weekend so pricing will definitely be higher

        • March 25, 2021

          Thursday is part of the weekend? I like the way you think!

        You are right. My concern is the paucity of flights. Only two flights a week between BGI and DOM, which in reality constitute one ( one in , one out, operated as single flights on two, non-consecutive weekdays).

      Caribbean airlines (owned by the govt. T&T), uses one of their 737-800’s on their Barbados-New York connection. This aircraft cannot use DOM airport at Melville Hall, which has a runway of 5,671 ft. – it needs min. 6,500 ft. for landing and 9000 ft. for take off. From Barbados to Dominica they will employ one of their ATR72-600 turboprops, which entails an aircraft change in Barbados.
