[Seaborne] New air link to Anguilla
Tuesday, September 20, 2016

UK visitors to the island of Anguilla will have the option of a new air link from November 1.

Thanks to a partnership between the Anguilla Tourist Board and Seaborne Airlines, holidaymakers will be able to connect to Anguilla's Clayton J Lloyd International Airport with Seaborne via Puerto Rico.

The route, which will operate up to six flights per week from San Juan, Thursday-Monday, will link with the low-cost Norwegian flight from London Gatwick on Saturdays.

Visitors can only currently access the island via the daily LIAT connection from Antigua, with British Airways or Virgin, or via boat transfer from St Martin to Blowing Point (London via Paris with KLM & Air France).

Carolyn Brown, director UK & Ireland for the Anguilla Tourist Board, 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 London 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 £577pp return."

The launch of the new route comes as three new luxury hotels open on the island - The Four Seasons, The Reef and the The Manoah.
