InterCaribbean Airways will soon increase its number of weekly flights into Dominica according to Chief Executive Officer of the Discover Dominica Authority Colin Piper.

The airline began coming into the island three times weekly on March 22, 2018, carrying passengers from Dominica to Tortola and on to St. Lucia.

Piper while giving his address on the State of the Industry Update and General Overview of the Way Forward during the 2018 Global Marketing Summit on Friday 15 June 2018 said in a week or two the airline will fly into the island five times a week.

“Because the load factors have been as such that they’re going to increase that investment into Dominica to five times weekly.”

He also said flights may be increased to seven times weekly in October or November of this year.

“So I think that augers well for us in terms of variety, in terms of choice and also will assist in terms of the cost.”
