Currently, there are no flights to Saba on Wednesday and Thursday, but per June 1, this will change, and there will be flights 7 days a week, which will contribute to Saba’s connectivity. These flights are loaded in the system until August 31, 2022. The number of flights to St. Eustatius will also increase.
