United Airlines will start year-found flights from Newark and Washington Dulles to Barbados beginning in September. The airline currently flies to the island seasonally, from November to April, from Newark on Saturdays and Dulles on Sundays.
“Initially, United Airlines’ service to Barbados was introduced in 2021 to support winter travel for passengers onboard the Royal Caribbean Rhapsody of the Seas vessel,” said Eusi Skeete, U.S. director of Barbados Tourism Marketing. “However, since then, the appeal has grown significantly, with Barbados continuing to see a distinct rise in visitors from the New Jersey, D.C., Maryland and Virginia areas.”
