Caribbean's Nevis Island Now Has Helicopter Service

The tourism authority of Nevis, one of the Leeward Islands of the West Indies (and the birthplace of Alexander Hamilton), has formed an alliance with Caribbean Helicopters to make it easy for visitors to find their way to and from the resort island. Part of the Federation of St. Kitts & Nevis, the island is known for its tropical climate and Nevis Peak, a volcanic formation at its center.

Antigua-based Caribbean Helicopters has been operating for 18 years and is also a licensed maintenance provider. It will now operate direct flights between Antigua and Nevis on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays using Bell 206-series LongRangers. The 20-minute flights between Antigua and Nevis can carry as many as six passengers, it said.

According to the Nevis Tourism Authority, travelers from North America can arrive on commercial flights landing at nearby St. Kitts, hop a seven-minute water taxi to Nevis and then take one of Caribbean Helicopters’ flights to Antigua. Greg Phillips, CEO of the tourist authority, said, “This is good for international and Caribbean travelers seeking the convenient routes to get to and from Nevis.”
