Saint Lucia to welcome back Air Canada flights this fall/winter

TORONTO — Saint Lucia is gearing up for the return of Air Canada flights this fall and winter, which will kick off on Oct. 9, 2022.

Direct nonstop service from Toronto (YYZ) to Saint Lucia (UVF) will operate once a week starting in October before ramping up to four weekly flights (Monday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday) in November until Dec. 9. Additional flights will be added to the schedule for the holiday season, with five weekly flights running until Dec. 18 and then increasing to six weekly flights until Dec. 25, 2022.

In January 2023, Air Canada’s winter schedule will include five weekly flights until March 2023, then increase frequency to six weekly flights until April 2023.

With the additional nonstop flights from Air Canada, Saint Lucia will offer Canadians 20 nonstop routes from Toronto Pearson International Airport this fall/winter season.

“We are excited to welcome Air Canada back this fall with direct nonstop service from Toronto,” said Lorine Charles-St. Jules, CEO of the Saint Lucia Tourism Authority. “The additional flights will provide Canadians with more viable options to explore our beautiful island. Canada is one of our main source markets, adding to our growth and tourism product. We will continue to drive robust, targeted marketing and public relations efforts in Canada to increase awareness and new routes.”

Air Canada Rouge flights have access to complimentary in-flight entertainment streamed to personal smartphones or devices without the requirement to download an app. Premium Rouge customers are also offered complimentary use of sanitized iPads with entertainment content.
