St. Lucia Airports
St. Lucia is a very lush and tropical island in the Eastern Caribbean. England and France fought for nearly two hundred years over beautiful St. Lucia. This dazzling Caribbean wonderland is a fountain of natural treasures – the fiery passions of an ancient volcano, the richness of a national rainforest, and the soothing waters of the glistening bay and sea.
The island of St. Lucia has two airports. The larger Hewanorra International Airport (UVF) is approximately 90 – 120 minutes drive from the capital Castries and Rodney Bay. The smaller George F. Charles Airport (SLU) is approximately 15 minutes drive to the Rodney Bay area. Van transfer costs are reasonable and readily available. Car rentals are also available, however it is wonderful to recieve an island overview from the local transfer drivers.
All large jets arrive at the larger Hewanorra International Airport with American Eagle and LIAT arriving at the smaller airport in Castries.
