WinAir Stops Anguilla Flights

Update from WinAir...

I'm sad to report that Winair has stopped all service to Anguilla, including flights to/from St. Maarten AND San Juan.

The reason? "[It's] not economically sustainable."

If you're looking to get to Anguilla from San Juan, give Tradewinds a try. If you're seeking to get to AXA from SXM via air, Anguilla Air Services offers daily scheduled flights and charters can be arranged with TransAnguilla.
