PRESS RELEASE – THERE is an easier way to get to Saint Lucia from Germany thanks to a new interline flights agreement between Condor and LIAT. The new service from Frankfurt, Germany to the George FL Charles Airport (SLU) in Castries begins in January 2019.
The Saint Lucia Tourism Authority has welcomed the announcement of the new service from one of its major source markets, which it hopes will boost the number of tourist arrivals from Germany.
“Airlift is the bedrock of the Caribbean tourism industry, so we are excited about the cooperation agreement between Condor and LIAT,” said Mrs. Tiffany Howard, Acting CEO of the Saint Lucia Tourism Authority. “The SLTA is always looking at new and innovative ways to increase airlift and such partnerships provide yet another option for travellers who are eager to visit Saint Lucia,” she declared.
The Condor-LIAT agreement provides varying opportunities for travellers to get to Saint Lucia from the German market. However, the fastest route to Saint Lucia is the Monday flight from Frankfurt to Saint Lucia with a transfer to Liat in Antigua. That service leaves Frankfurt every Monday at 9:40a.m. Germany time, with a connection to LIAT in Antigua that arrives in Saint Lucia at 7:05p.m.ECT. The return is available through Antigua.
Additional option to Germany from Saint Lucia are via Barbados on Tuesdays and Saturdays. The Tuesday services leave Saint Lucia at 3:05p.m. and 6:10p.m. ECT with transfer in Barbados. Both flights have the same connection in Barbados onto Condor that arrives in Frankfurt, Germany at 11:20a.m. German time the following day. The Saturday services are similar, leaving Saint Lucia at 10:10a.m. and 3:05p.m. ECT with a changeover to Condor in Barbados that arrives in Frankfurt, Germany at 10:30a.m.Germany time the following day.
There are other booking options that involve more stops along the routes. Flights are now bookable at Condor.com and the cooperation agreement between the two airlines will run from January to March 2019.
