Getting to Dominica

West Indies. Dominica

Dominica is served by two airports: Melville Hall (DOM) and Canefield (DCF) Airport. Nearly ALL visitors to Dominica will arrive through Melville Hall as it is the larger of the two airports and accommodates commercial airlines.  Melville Hall, located in the north-eastern side of the island, approximately one hour and 20 minutes from the city, features a longer runway and updated terminal.

International flights from US and Europe are connected to the island through hubs in Antigua (ANU), Barbados (BGI), St. Maarten (SXM), Puerto Rico (SJU), Guadeloupe (PTP), and Martinique (FDF). Leeward Island Air Transport (LIAT) offers direct connections from ANU, BGI, SXM, SJU, and PTP as well as other connecting flights across their 22 island network.BVI Airways provides service from St. Maarten and Tortola.

Starting on April 1, 2013, Seaborne Airlines service replaced the American Eagle service from Puerto Rico. The airline has a code share agreement with American Airlines allowing travellers to book their flights to Dominica directly through American Airlines. Seaborne flight BB 4554, is scheduled to depart Puerto Rico daily at 11:45AM ECT to arrival in Dominica at 1:40PM ECT. The return flight (BB 4577) will depart Dominica at 2:10PM ECT.Additionally, on April 4, 2013, LIAT began a non-stop service between Dominica and Puerto Rico, flight, LI 565, departs Puerto Rico 3:00PM ECT daily to arrive in Dominica at 4:45PM ECT. Flight LI 560 to Puerto Rico departs Dominica at 10:10AM ECT, daily.

There are various scheduled charter services serving Dominica.  There is a possibility with enough people we may charter a flight from St. Lucia Hewanorra airport for competitors flying in from the West Coast.  St. Lucia has direct flights from the US, and a connecting charted flight directly into Canefield near Roseau.  This option would also save the 1 hour 20 minute drive from Melville Hall (DOM)
