Castries, Saint Lucia: Delta Airlines and American Airlines are set to add more flights to Saint Lucia this winter. The flights will enhance the service to the island for tourists across the globe.
Delta will add a second Saturday flight (twice on Saturdays) between Atlanta and Saint Lucia from January to April 2024, and American Airlines will add a second daily flight out of Miami between December and January.
