Windward Islands Airways returns to BVI
Published on December 14, 2013 Email To Friend    Print Version

TORTOLA, BVI -- Starting on Sunday, Windward Islands Airways International (WINAIR) will commence double daily service between Beef Island (EIS) in the British Virgin Islands and St Maarten (SXM). The airline will operate 19-seater de Havilland Twin Otter aircraft.

The return of WINAIR to the BVI will increase capacity to the BVI by an additional 13,000 seats per year and provides excellent connections for passengers travelling from the US and Europe via St Maarten. WINAIR currently has interline agreements with most of the major US carriers flying into St Maarten, making the transfer of passengers seamless. The WINAIR flights are bookable through the Global Distribution System (GDS).

“We are very pleased to welcome the WINAIR service to the British Virgin Islands. WINAIR’s flight schedule between St Maarten and Tortola is an addition to the growing list of travel options available to our visitors,” said Sharon Flax-Mars, Director of Tourism. “We continue to work with the airlines to make the BVI more accessible to travelers and to ensure that travel connections from our major source markets are efficient and effortless.”

“We at WINAIR are very happy to be recommencing service to the BVI. This is just the start of the long partnership that we plan to develop with the BVI. Over the next few months, we may start using the ATR 42 (48-seater) on this route, which will offer even more seats between our two islands. We are looking at the connectivity with Copa Airlines and should be in a position to offer round-trip connectivity very soon. This new service will also offer residents of the BVI more accessibility to St Maarten where there has been a long shopping history,” said Michael Cleaver, president and CEO of WINAIR.
