British Virgin Islands (BVI) Welcomes Windward Islands Airways (WINAIR) Back to Tortola
Monday 16 December, 2013

Tortola, British Virgin Islands

Starting Sunday December 15th, Windward Islands Airways International (WINAIR) will commence double daily service between Beef Island (EIS) and St. Maarten (SXM).

The airline will operate 19-seater de Havilland Twin Otter aircrafts into the British Virgin Islands on the following schedule:
    • SXM-EIS Departs 11:35 AM Arrives 12:20
      EIS-SXM Departs 12:40 PM Arrives 13:30
      SXM-EIS Departs 16:55 PM Arrives 17:40
      EIS-SXM Departs 18:00 PM Arrives 18:50
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 & CEO of WINAIR.
