They’re two of the most luxurious islands in the Caribbean. But getting to them hasn’t always a luxurious experience.
That’s no longer the case, though, thanks to the return of luxury airline Tradewind Aviation.
The private airline, which offers both scheduled flights and private charter flights to a host of Caribbean destinations, is resuming its scheduled flights to both Nevis and Anguilla on Dec. 14.
The flights, which operate out of San Juan, Puerto Rico, will operate four times per week, on Fridays, Saturdays, Sundays and Mondays.
We’ve long loved the Tradewind experience in San Juan: you land, get your baggage (or, if you book your ticket on United, your baggage automatically gets transferred,), and head to Tradewind’s private lounge, enjoying complimentary snacks and beverages, free Wi-Fi and coffee. When the flight’s ready to board, you head down the elevator, get in the Tradewind shuttle and head right to the plane.
That means no need to go through TSA, no hassle. Just a seamless transfer.
Tradewind operates its flights on a fleet of modern, air-conditioned Pliatus PC-12 aircraft with two pilots, filled with more free drinks, snacks, wine and beer.
The best part? The scheduled flights to Nevis and Anguilla start at just $195 plus tax each way.
It all adds up to the kind of experience that’s brought back the glamour and elegance to flying — it’s luxury island hopping.
And it’s the best way to fly to Nevis and Anguilla (oh, and St Barth, too).
