Caribbean Islands - Hurricanes Irma and Maria
Martinique, Guadeloupe and St Lucia operations are suspended from Tuesday 19th September due to Hurricane Maria passing through the region. Re-opening of operations will depend on the impact of the hurricane on the islands.
Hurricane Maria is expected to hit Puerto Rico late Tuesday evening through to Wednesday. For this reason, local operations will be closed on Wednesday and resume as soon as conditions allow.
Service remains suspended in Anguilla, St Barthelemy, St Maarten and the British Virgin Islands due to the severe damage caused by Hurricane Irma. At the moment there is no projected date for resuming service.
