I thought this was already known about?

Ahh makes a lot of sense really, I did think it had gone very quiet on this one.

Annoyingly, I couldn't see on the website what the two days are they are flying there.

Ah so not much has really changed then. Wasn't UVF a double drop before that got killed?

I do like this format, it's an efficient way of offering a second route without having to add another plane, crew and load factor to things.

VS have already announced that they are indeed returning to St Lucia from Dec 18th this year. It's in this press release.

The story goes at the time that it was down to a disagreement over fees/subsidies, which frankly I expect from the likes of Ryanair. Either this has now been resolved or, in light of COVID and closed borders elsewhere, VS have worked out they can run the route profitably. I also think it's now seasonal winter instead of year-round as before.
