Travel to Dominica
Flying to Dominica
The main airline to serve Dominica is LIAT (www.liat.com). There are no direct, non-stop flights from Europe or the USA, mostly because the two airports are too small for jets. Popular routes from Europe are via Antigua, Barbados, St Lucia, Guadeloupe or Puerto Rico, then a local flight to Dominica.
