As of now, 2022, there are no direct flights to Dominica from the UK. So you will always have a short connecting flight to make. This slight inconvenience is more than made up for by the sheer unspoilt beauty of the Island. Big brand hotels are only just starting to appear, and there is a new International airport coming in 2 or 3 years. But for now enjoy its semi-isolation, making it very different from its neighbouring islands.
If you are coming from the UK, the simplest and quickest way here is with British Airways, which has daily 9 hour flights to Barbados, arriving at 3.30pm local time. You depart 1½ hours later on the connecting flight of InterCaribbean Airways for a final hour to Dominica. When making your booking with BA, put Dominica in as the destination, and they take care of the rest. You don't have to make a separate booking for the connecting flight. You arrive in Dominica at 6pm and 1 hour later you should arrive at Savanne Paille Holiday Homes either by car rental(recommended), or by taxi for $200 EC / $74US and begin to enjoy your Guest house accommodation Bed and Breakfast Portsmouth Dominica at my gorgeous plantation house.
