Sunrise Airways to introduce new flights linking Dominica to Eastern Caribbean neighbors

Hon. Denise Charles-Pemberton

Sunrise Airways will introduce new flights connecting Dominica to Antigua, St. Kitts, and St. Lucia, starting May 25th , 2024. The airline’s new services will operate six (6) days a week (excluding Tuesdays), offering daily flights between Dominica and Antigua, with onward connections to other destinations. This schedule is designed to cater to both business and leisure travelers, ensuring flexibility and convenience. The airline will operate commercial flights on a 30-seat twin-turboprop aircraft.

The Honourable Denise Charles-Pemberton, Minister for Tourism, expressed her support for the initiative: “We are pleased that Sunrise Airways has heeded our region’s call for increased intra-regional travel. Their dedication to connecting our islands aligns with our vision for a more interconnected Eastern Caribbean. This expansion is not just a win for Dominica but for all the destinations involved. We anticipate a surge in tourism and economic activity, offering our citizens more travel opportunities and bringing our communities closer together.

Sunrise Airways, a family-owned carrier based in Haiti, services a network that spans twelve (12) gateways across six (6) Caribbean and Central American nations, including Cuba, the Dominican Republic, Guadeloupe, Haiti, Panama City, and St. Maarten. With plans for further expansion in the Eastern Caribbean throughout 2024 and beyond, Sunrise Airways is poised to play a pivotal role in the region’s travel industry.

    I just hope that the ticket prices are not sky high. I want to visit Dominica again, but the ticket price was too high, and transportation from Melville Hall was too high. And as someone has already said, I hope the flights to Dominica will be coming into the Cainefiled airport. I wish Sunrise Airways all the best.

    Will this small 30 seat airline travel from Melville hall airport or Cainefield? After all, that’s not even a 70 seat airplane so why the minister not tell us what airport it will be flying to and from in Dominica, since a 30 seater can fly out of both airports? So can someone please tell me why the madam minister is so excited about a 30 seater that will be flying to and from Da? Aben wei, see how we come boy
    “We are pleased that Sunrise Airways has heeded our region’s call for increased intra-regional travel.” So mada minister how long have you all been crying for help? Don’t tell me is 24 years we calling and begging for help and no one in the region heard us

    Well-loved. Like or Dislike: Thumb up 12 Thumb down 5
