LONDON, England – British Airways and Winair have announced they will offer a cost effective, same-day route from London to Dominica, via Antigua.

The new route will mean that British travellers can leave the UK at 10:30 GMT and be in the hidden island paradise of Dominica with a rum punch in their hand by 18:30 local time.

Colin Piper, CEO and Director of Tourism at Discover Dominica Authority, says ‘The new same-day connection is great news for the island and we’re excited that our visitors will now be able to travel straight to us and be in a Dominican frame of mind by dinnertime. Many travellers might have been put off by having to stay overnight at one of our Caribbean neighbours, so I hope this new connection will encourage more British holidaymakers to visit our slice of tropical paradise.’
