The Anguilla Tourist Board (ATB) and CHL Airlines have partnered up to offer a new scheduled route into Anguilla, specifically catering for UK visitors.

The new route, which started on December 20, will offer the option to connect to Anguilla’s Clayton J Lloyd International Airport from Antigua V.C Bird International Airport, and will provide greater flexibility for holidaymakers and travellers to Anguilla from the UK’s preferred route of Antigua.

Additional access is via the US, San Juan (connecting with Norwegian) or via boat transfer from St Martin to Blowing Point (London via Paris with KLM and Air France). The flights have been timed to connect with the direct British Airways and Virgin Atlantic arrivals from London as well as regional arrivals from other Caribbean islands. The scheduled flights have been carefully planned to minimise waiting time after the long-haul flight from the UK.

The CHL Airlines' route into Anguilla operates two return flights daily - Tuesdays and Wednesdays, with fares starting from £169. However, new walk up fares from £79 have been introduced to cater for impulse travellers deciding to travel to Anguilla on the day. These tickets can only be purchased at the airport, on the day of travel.

Carolyn Brown, director UK & Ireland for the Anguilla Tourist Board, said: “The new route is fantastic news for independent UK travellers and the local Anguilla marketing traveling to and from Antigua. Not only does it allow greater choice and flexibility beyond the current route options but it also provides a very affordable option for those looking to take a last minute trip across from Antigua to Anguilla.

“With easier access to the island, combined with three new hotels openings this season and the island celebrating 50 years since the Anguilla Revolution, 2017 is set to be an exciting year for Anguilla.”
