SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico -- Seaborne Airlines has announced that non-stop service between the carrier’s hub in San Juan’s Luis Muñoz Marin International Airport and Antigua and Barbuda, V.C. Bird International Airport, will resume starting on Friday, July 21, 2017.

Seaborne Airlines and the Antigua and Barbuda Tourism Authority have entered into an agreement to resume flights. The service will provide increased airlift and convenient connecting opportunities for both visitors and Antiguans and Barbudans.

Passengers from over 30 destinations in the Americas and Europe will be able to reach Antigua with a single stop in San Juan through connections with Seaborne’s partner airlines, including American Airlines, Delta Air Lines, JetBlue Airways, United Airlines, and Vieques Air Link.

All flights will be operated by a crew of two pilots and one flight attendant using 34-seat Saab 340 aircraft, which feature a roomy cabin with overhead bins, in-flight service, a restroom, and other amenities.

Seaborne will operate four non-stop round-trip flights per week between San Juan and Antigua beginning July 21, which will be available for booking now.

“A convenient schedule has been designed to benefit local customers with easy access between the islands, while connecting passengers will benefit from direct transfers through Luis Muñoz Marin International Airport in San Juan, one of the busiest airports in the Caribbean” said Hector Montanez, Seaborne vice president of commercial.

“An overnight flight with a morning departure from Antigua will maximize convenience to both tourists and residents,” added Montanez.

“We are excited to have Seaborne resume services to Antigua and Barbuda, starting this July. Additional airlift, which is also competitively priced, is a plus for the destination as we prepare for a busy summer season with visitors travelling to Antigua and Barbuda for vacation, and to participate in our major summer festival, Antigua’s Carnival which celebrates its 60th Anniversary this year from July 27th – August 8, 2017,” said Antigua and Barbuda minister of tourism, economic development, investment and energy, Asot A. Michael.
