Dominica / Regional Flights

By Stephen Thorpe

The fleet of regional aircraft criss-crossing the Caribbean helps to funnel arrivals from the region’s main hubs to Dominica. A few small regional airline operators offer regular services that flit between Dominica and Puerto Rico, Antigua, Barbados and Guadeloupe, generally enabling travellers to connect to onward services from their international flights on the same day. However, be warned, because if timings are tight, the luggage may not always make it on to the local flight, so carry essentials in hand baggage.

Local/regional airlines with inter-Island services into Dominca:

LIAT - the main inward carrier with several flights a day from Antigua and daily non-stop services from Barbados, St Maarten and Guadeloupe into Melville Hall.

Seaborne Airlines - operates a daily scheduled service Puerto Rico into Melville Hall.

BVI Airlines - scheduled service three times a week from St Maarten into Melville Hall.

Air Sunshine – scheduled flights into Melville Hall from San Juan, Puerto Rico twice a week and St Maarten three times a week.

For those arriving in Dominica from Guadeloupe or Martinique, there is also a ferry service, see more details in the Dominica Ferries section.
