CALEDONIAN FLIGHTS CAN BE BOOKED IN V.I.

Caledonian Airways flights to London's Gatwick Airport can now be booked in the Virgin Islands, acting Tourism Commissioner Monique Sibilly-Hodge announced Friday.
Caledonian began direct weekly flights to St. Thomas from London on May 6 on its DC-10, which holds 365 passengers. The return flight leaves St. Thomas and stops in Antigua before returning to London.
"This is the perfect relationship. We benefit from the inbound passengers and get an opportunity to fly to London at such an attractive and competitive fare," Hodge said, "This deal is a dream come true."
Up until now , Caledonian flights could only be booked in London.
The charter arrives weekly during July and August and will switch to biweekly flights in September. It will revert to weekly trips in October and throughout the winter.
For stays up to four weeks, the fare varies from $561 to $693; for stays over four weeks and up to a minimum of eight weeks, flights will cost an additional $132.
