The Saint Lucia Tourism Authority says it is “thrilled about the drop in airfares for flights between Miami, Florida and Saint Lucia.”

American Airlines is now offering fares for as low as US $514 return from Miami, and according to the Authority – the move augers well for the already increased number of arrivals from the US mainland to the island.

Saint Lucia had recently reclaimed its position as the World’s Leading Honeymoon destination and it is hoping that this position would anchor well from February 2019.

The island had recently announced commencement of US$100 million work on its busy Hewanorra International Airport where large flights land.
