Antigua (ANU), St.Lucia (UVF), Tobago (TAB)
Antigua, St.Lucia and Tobago flights will go via Barbados. This means if your flight is departing Antigua, St.Lucia or Tobago inbound to the UK, there is a transit stop in Barbados International Airport for a refuel, cabin clean and crew change. When you board the plane in Antigua, St.Lucia and Tobago there will still be passengers on the plane who are on their way from the UK to Barbados.
You would have been advised at the local check-in counters that the seat number stated on your boarding card, is only valid for the final sector, Barbados to the UK. So please take a free seat in your booked cabin class (economy or premium) for the short journey between Antigua, St.Lucia or Tobago and Barbados.
Transit in Barbados:
Once arriving into Barbados the transit time is scheduled at 90 minutes. All customers travelling to the UK will disembark the aircraft first, and will be handed a individual LAMINATED TRANSIT boarding card.
As all Transit customers need to be screened (this is an International Security Regulation) you will proceed through a small transit security area where all hand luggage is required to be screened. You will then enter the International Departure Lounge in Barbados, free to shop and rest, until the gate for your UK flight is announced.
For Transit customers in Barbados (who have started their journey in Antigua, St.Lucia or Tobago), we suggest duty free liquids >100ml bought prior to the Barbados transit, are not carried in hand luggage due to the local security arrangement to remove these duty free items, which should then be delivered to the gate. The airline cannot be held responsible if these items are not reunited with the rightful owner at boarding time.
Arrival in the Caribbean:
Those passengers whose final destination is Barbados, will disembark the aircraft last and proceed in a different direction to clear Arrival Immigration & Customs in the usual fashion.
All customers arriving in any Caribbean destination are required to complete the landing card of the respected destination which will be given out on the plane. Forms are also available in the arrival areas if you require additional copies.
