Dominica | The Nature Island is ready for winter travelers

Secret Bay

Just in time for the winter travel season, Discover Dominica has released new destination updates, as well as seasonal specials and offerings.


December marked the one-year anniversary of American Airlines’ direct, nonstop service to Dominica (DOM) from Miami International Airport (MIA), making it easier than ever for U.S. travelers to get to The Nature Island. Due to the ongoing challenges in assets and pilot availability, the flight schedule will change as follows:

  • February 3 – April 3, 4x weekly (Mon/Wed/Sat/Sun)

The current flight schedule is available on aa.com. American Airlines will be releasing the schedule for the remainder of the year in the coming months. 

Silver Airways (American Airlines, JetBlue, United, Delta) is a code share partner with American Airlines, JetBlue, United and Delta. Silver Airways recently upgraded their service to Dominica with the transition from their 34 seat Saab 340 aircraft to their 48 seat ATR aircraft to serve the SJU/DOM route. Travelers from the US can also fly to DOM on American Airlines, United, JetBlue or Delta through San Juan (SJU) and connect on Silver Airways, which offers service 4x weekly:

  • Arrivals in on Mon/Thu/Fri/Sat
  • Departures out on Tue/Fri/Sat/Sun
