ST JOHN’S, Antigua -- The Montserrat-based airline FlyMontserrat has now taken over the Antigua to Nevis route with effect from Monday.

LIAT pulled out of the route earlier in the month and FlyMontserrat replaced them, in a contract negotiated with the Nevis Island Administration to provide twice daily services, five days a week using its Britten Norman Islander aircraft.

Initially the service will operate on Mondays, Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays with the addition of a Wednesday service beginning on 22 January 2014.

The 25-minute flight will leave Antigua for Nevis at 11.30 returning from Nevis at 12.15. Afternoon flights will depart Antigua for Nevis at 16.45 returning from Nevis at 17.30.

The service will allow passengers to transfer to Europe, North America and the rest of the Caribbean through the Antiguan gateway.

Base single fares have been set at US$165 plus taxes.

Managing director Nigel Harris on Monday met hotel owners, agents and officials and was delighted to be returning to Nevis.

“The Nevis Island Administration has been pro-active in trying to seek a replacement to LIAT at a difficult time of year and at short notice. I hope this will lead to a long-term relationship with the Island; that the service will be well-used and we can expand air services further at some time in the future,” Harris said.

FlyMontserrat has been operating in the region for nearly five years, flying scheduled services, mainly out of Antigua and Montserrat. It also flies charters throughout the Caribbean, carries freight and offers medevac facilities.
