Winair ready to increase flights to Anguilla
Philipsburg, August 5th, 2004 - Winair (WM) is set to increase flights from St. Maarten to the neighboring island of Anguilla (AXA) as soon as American Eagle stops its flights between San Juan (Puerto Rico) and Anguilla. The American airline will stop its flights during the expansion work on the Wallblake Airport runway.
The island government of Anguilla has specifically requested Winair to fill this gap in order to avoid Anguilla becoming isolated. The Windward Islands airline has a number of codesharing and interline agreements with other airlines that operate out of San Juan (SJU) into St. Maarten. Their passengers can fly with Winair to the surrounding smaller islands.
A ticket from Princess Juliana International Airport (PJIA) on St. Maarten to Wallblake on Anguilla, which lies a couple of kilometers to the north, costs anywhere from € 20 euro for a One Way trip. A return flights starts at about € 35 euro. At the moment Winair’s flight schedule has a frequency of 6 flights per day to Anguilla. The Anguilla airport expansion plan starts in two months.
