The Anguilla Tourist Board (ATB) and Seaborne Airlines have partnered to offer a new route to Anguilla for UK visitors.
Starting from November 1, the new route will offer the option to connect to Anguilla’s Clayton J Lloyd International Airport with Seaborne, via Puerto Rico.
Flights will operate up to six times weekly from San Juan, Thursday-Monday, with the low-cost Norwegian flight from Gatwick on a Saturday.
The route will provide greater flexibility for holidaymakers, who currently access the island via the daily LIAT connection from Antigua (BA and Virgin) or via boat transfer from St Martin to Blowing Point (London via Paris with KLM and Air France).
Carolyn Brown, director UK & Ireland for the ATB, said: “The new airlift is great news for independent UK travellers wishing to experience the authentic Caribbean island of Anguilla. Not only does it allow greater choice and flexibility for travellers beyond the current Antigua and St Martin connections, but it also opens up the island further as an affordable Caribbean destination by utilising the low-cost Norwegian connection from Gatwick to San Juan.
“The short one-hour flight from San Juan on the 34-seater aircraft, will cost from $410. Combined with the Norwegian lead-in rate, with return fares in November from £269.20, holidaymakers can reach Anguilla from as little as £577 per person return.” The launch of the new route coincides with the opening of three new luxury hotels on the island, including The Four Seasons, The Reef and the The Manoah.
