American Airlines Cuts Flights Between St. Kitts and New York

American Airlines will be cutting back on the number of direct flights between St. Kitts and New York’s JFK as early as May, The Observer has learned.The US-based airline currently operates two weekly direct flights between New York and St. Kitts on Sundays and Wednesdays. American Airlines commenced the twice weekly service from New York’s JFK Airport to St. Kitts in November 2007. Edward Martelle, with AA’s Media Relations Department told The Observer that this reduction in airlift was only temporary.

It’s something we do pretty much every year. The Wednesday direct flight for that route is going away in May and comes back in June. The Sunday direct flight from John F Kennedy International Airport into St. Kitts will continue as normal, he said.Mr. Martelle explained another lengthier provisional cessation of the mid-week AA flight between New York and St. Kitts will occur from the end of August until the end of November.The flight will resume in June and run through the end of August, then it goes away again for a few months and it picks up again in November, he said.

This was an annual practice by the airline the media representative said, undertaken during recessive travel periods for that specific route.The direct flights depart JFK at 7:50 a.m. and arrive into St. Kitts’ Robert L. Bradshaw International Airport at 12:30 p.m. Return flights depart St. Kitts at 1:40 p m. and arrive into JFK at 6:20 p.m.In the absence of the mid-week nonstop flight, AA travelers can use connecting flight routes to journey between St. Kitts and New York. In September 2008 AA’s American Eagle reduced its Caribbean schedule from 55 daily departures from San Juan, Puerto Rico to 33. American Eagle’s daily flights between St. Kitts and Puerto Rico were slashed from 3\three to one.American Airlines continues to operate its daily flights into the Robert L. Bradshaw International Airport from Miami International Airport.
