St. Kitts tourism officials are reminding agents that Air Canada will begin service to St. Kitts on Dec. 23 for the peak winter 2011/2012 travel season which ends in April 2012. The weekly non-stop flight will operate from Toronto on Fridays. It will be the island’s only non-stop commercial flight from Canada, effectively making St. Kitts and its sister island, Nevis, a more viable winter destination choice for travellers from this key North American market.
Air Canada flight AC1778 will depart Toronto (YYZ) at 8:40 a.m. and arrive into St. Kitts’ Robert L. Bradshaw International Airport at 2:40 p.m. every Friday. The same-day return flight, AC1779, will depart St. Kitts at 3:40 p.m. and arrive into Toronto at 8 p.m. Air Canada will use an Airbus 319 aircraft with 108 Economy Class seats and 12 Business Class seats for this flight.
