St Lucia Airport Locations

Getting to St Lucia

If you are flying direct from Europe, Canada or the eastern seaboard of the United States then you will fly into Hewanorra, the only airport that can take wide-bodied jets. From Britain it is served by British Airways, Virgin Atlantic and BWIA, from the United States by US Airways and Air Jamaica and from Canada by Air Canada.

American Airlines route all their services via San Juan in Puerto Rico, with a connecting flight on American Eagle. This is generally slow and a nuisance, but it does have one advantage in that it enables you to arrive and leave from George F.L. Charles Airport in the north of St Lucia which is closer to the majority of the hotels and local night life.

It’s worth noting that if you have difficulty finding a flight to St Lucia, or there is no flight on the day that you want to travel, then it is often possible to fly via Barbados, from where there are many transfers each day, including an evening flight that leaves after the scheduled arrival of the international services. Connecting flights will probably fly into the northern airport outside Castries.

Other inter-Caribbean airlines servicing St Lucia are Caribbean Star and LIAT, both of which fly up and down the island chain and to Barbados and Air Caraïbes, which emanates from the French islands.

Estimated flying times from some of the major cities around the world: 3.5 hours from Miami to George FL Charles Airport 4 hours from New York to Hewanorra Airport 5 hours from Toronto to Hewanorra Airport 8 hours from London to Hewanorra Airport
