The Saint Lu­cia Tourism Author­ity is pleased to an­nounce the ad­di­tion of a non-stop flight from Toronto (YYZ) to Saint Lu­cia (UVF) this au­tumn with Air Canada.

The ad­di­tional Toronto flight, op­er­ated by Air Canada Rouge, com­mences on Wed­nes­day, Oc­to­ber 31, 2018. Air Canada has in­creased its to­tal fre­quency to four weekly flights from Toronto to Saint Lu­cia, then com­mences daily ser­vice on De­cem­ber 25, 2018 to the is­land. The new flight sched­ule fea­tures non-stop ser­vice on Mon­day, Wed­nes­day, Satur­day and Sun­day.

Saint Lu­cia will also wel­come a non-stop flight from Mon­treal (YUL) start­ing Fri­day, De­cem­ber 21, 2018 with Air Canada main­line on its brand new 737-max air­craft. The larger air­craft in­creases the to­tal seat co­pac­ity by 24% and 57% in full sea­son. The Mon­tre­al­based flight will op­er­ate once a week ev­ery Fri­day. Air Canada has also ex­tended its sea­son, fly­ing non-stop from Mon­treal to Saint Lu­cia un­til April 26, 2019.

“Canada is Saint Lu­cia’s fourth largest travel mar­ket. Th­ese new non-stop flights from Toronto and Mon­treal sig­nif­i­cantly con­tribute to our tourism growth and the mar­ket­ing ef­forts of the Saint Lu­cia Tourism Author­ity,” said Act­ing Chief Ex­ec­u­tive Of­fi­cer, Mrs. Tif­fany Howard. “We con­tinue to record ad­vance­ment in stay­over ar­rivals from Canada. The new di­rect ser­vice will pro­vide more op­por­tu­ni­ties for Cana­di­ans to ex­plore our beau­ti­ful is­land.”

An ex­clu­sive twelve-page in­sert was cre­ated for Air Canada’s in-flight mag­a­zine, en­Route, to launch the new non-stop ser­vice. A 30-sec­ond in­flight com­mer­cial on Saint Lu­cia will ac­com­pany the in­sert, which can be seen on all Air Canada and Air Canada Rouge air­craft dur­ing the month of Oc­to­ber.

Cou­ples who book and pay for a trip to Saint Lu­cia by Oc­to­ber 31 with Air Canada Va­ca­tions, or through a travel agent, will re­ceive a $300 de­duc­tion per per­son on pack­ages in­clu­sive of flight, ho­tel and trans­fer. This is a sav­ing of up to $600 per cou­ple when book­ing Saint Lu­cia from Novem­ber 1, 2018 to April 30, 2019.
