  1. Re: Voyager Ferry leaving out of Oyster Pond

    Oyster Pond marina is still being rebuilt post-IRMA. Most of the docks have been destroyed by the hurricane. Voyager told us that they were about to re-start the Oyster Pond runs very soon, but the...

    Honestly, there is nothing to it. Antigua now has a brand-new terminal and everything works quite smoothly (except if you are running late, that means arriving after 4:00 pm, due to the sunset...

    Re: Tradewind Fares SJU-SBH

    Unless you want to spend the night in PR, prime times are the ones everybody is looking at..... the ones connecting with inbound/outbound flights from/to the continental US (noon - mid-afternoon).

    Re: SXM repairs on schedule

    "Wi-fi service and airconditioned".

    Not sure if this is the main preoccupation here.

    - A fully operational airport
    - Capable of handling multiple airliners at the...
  5. Re: Starting new DIRECT charter service from Miami to St. Barths (brand new Pilatus)

    4 hours on a Pilatus which is configured as a business jet is more comfortable than you think. :-)

    If you compare this to a light jet flying from MIA to SXM (approximately 3 hours...

    Re: Question for the frequent flyers

    SXM Transit to SBH = 1 hour
    SXM Transit from SBH = 2 hours

    Above are the minimum recommended times between flights. More is better, especially inbound during winter (delays out of airports in the...

    Re: Ferry from Oyster Pond to SBH

    Correct. A few observations though:

    - SXM airport to Marigot harbor is more like 20-30 minutes drive (a little faster with the new bridge, but traffic can be intense in Marigot). 10 minutes is...
  8. Re: Winair Customer Service- Departure Sunday, August 5, 2018

    Yes, correct.

    Another particularity for SBC:

    - Prices include all airport taxes & fees. This is true for both scheduled and charter flights.

    This is a unique system than no other operator...
  9. Re: Winair Customer Service- Departure Sunday, August 5, 2018

    Yes, remember SBC does not sell tickets (or charter flights) from SXM to SBH if you're not in "transit" (connecting with another flight inbound). Generally, the above policy is applied where the...

  11. Re: Winair Customer Service- Departure Sunday, August 5, 2018

    Sorry to hear about such a poor customer service. I'm not sure if the whole airline (Winair) is responsible for this? Perhaps the Winair Rep in St Barths did the screw up?

  13. Re: Starting new DIRECT charter service from Miami to St. Barths (brand new Pilatus)

    1080 NM @ 280 knots = approximately 4 hours (average flight time). However this is depending on the winds aloft and varies every day. It is usually a little faster to fly from MIA to SBH due to the...
  14. Re: Starting new DIRECT charter service from Miami to St. Barths (brand new Pilatus)

    We operate several Pilatus PC12's. Not all of them are equipped with a lavatory, however the ones operated on the longer flights are (including the latest addition to the fleet).

    It looks like Pirate 40 will be your savior. :-)

    "L'avion" (the airplane) on the logo is not an Islander, but a Twin Otter, like the ones flown by Winair.
