Seaborne Airlines said it is restarting normal operations to the Island of Dominica effective Wednesday, September 23rd, 2015.
This will include resumption of the American Airlines code-shared connecting service from San Juan´s Luis Munoz Marin International Airport to Douglas Charles International Airport in Dominica, on a daily basis, as well as interline connecting service to JetBlue, Delta and United Airlines, also through San Juan.
In the wake of Tropical Storm Erika, all passenger flights to Dominica were cancelled due to weather-related damage at Douglas Charles International Airport. Seaborne operated 92 relief flights from August 23 to September 22, 2015 into and out of the region, to include 76 flights into and out of Guadeloupe (PTP) and 18 non-passenger flights into and out of Dominica´s Canefield Airport (DCF) and Douglas Charles International Airport (DOM) in conjunction with Ross University.
Many hundreds of medical students, faculty and relief workers were transported during this time, allowing students to start their studies and aiding recovery efforts. During this period, Seaborne Airlines also transported water and other needed relief items to assist with the recovery effort.
Seaborne Airlines has been operating in the Caribbean for over 23 years, carrying approximately three million customers safely. With over 1,500 monthly departures to 17 airports, Seaborne serves San Juan´s Luis MuÃ±oz Marin International Airport, St. Thomas airport and Seaplane base, St. Croix airport and Seaplane Base, Anguilla, Antigua, Tortola, Dominica, Martinique, Guadeloupe, Saint Martin, St. Kitts, Nevis, La Romana, Punta Cana and Santo Domingo.
