Trans Island Air now in Saint Lucia
5 July 2017

Trans Island Air has commenced scheduled flights into Saint Lucia. The airline, whose Caribbean base is Barbados, offers scheduled flights from Saint Lucia to Barbados, Grenada, Saint Vincent, and Dominica. The airline also offers a private charter service.

“Trans Island Air presently offers chartered services between Saint Lucia, Grenada, Barbados, Saint Vincent, and Dominica, with its twelve passenger beach 99 turbo aircraft,” Airline CEO Bruce Kauffman explained. “A 19 seat twin auto will be added to the fleet by September. We also offer private chartered services to 15 Caribbean destinations within a radius of 800 miles. By the end of November, TIA will upgrade its scheduled chartered service to a fully scheduled service. From Oct 23 this year Trans Island Air is committed to inaugurating to another service between Hewannora Airport Saint Lucia and Cane Field Airport in Dominica to provide connections into Dominica from the United States, the United Kingdom, Canada and the rest of Europe. Working with Saint Lucia we intend to develop Hewannorra as a major gateway airport for the Eastern Caribbean.”

The CEO said the airline hopes to take advantage of the fact that there are more seats into Saint Lucia’s Hewannorra International Airport direct from the United States than any other airport in the subregion. The transformation, Kauffman said, will strengthen Hewannorra in attracting and retaining international airlift, that will redound to the economic benefit of Saint Lucia.

Following Monday’s Cabinet meeting, Prime Minister Hon Allen Chastenet enjoyed a courtesy flight with the carrier. The prime minister noted that he was able to attend the Cabinet meeting and still get to his appointment in Grenada on time.

“I want to thank you for giving us the opportunity to be a hub for TIA and I am looking forward to the resounding success of your services. Today is probably a great example of the immediate impact of having TIA here. The alternative route to Grenada today would have taken us eight hours.”

Trans Island Air describes itself as being a revolutionized schedule and private charter aviation company with a vision to provide a relaxing, reliable and flexible flight experience.

Or 40 minutes by charter, paid for by the people of St. Lucia - and travelling as a group probably the same price as all the tickets on LIAT.

We are not all stupid, Mr. Chastanet.
