The Montserrat-based airline FlyMontserrat has set its fares and timetable for the new service between Antigua and Nevis.
Bookings can now be made on the web for the new daily service which begins on the 4th June using Islander aircraft with 9 seat capacity.
Flights leave Nevis at 7.30am arriving in Antigua at 8am. The flight returns in the afternoon leaving Antigua at 5.45pm, arriving in Nevis at 6.15pm.
Base single fares have been set at US$114 plus taxes and there are also through fares for passengers connecting to or from Montserrat at $180.
The timings of the flights will allow passengers to spend the day in Antigua as well as offering the chance for people to visit Montserrat for a day trip.
A special Day Trip fare from Nevis to Montserrat is being offered at $198 on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays and Sundays. This fare will be bookable two days before departure. Managing Director, Nigel Harris, hopes that people will take advantage of the special fare: “Montserrat, like Nevis, is known for its friendliness and visitors will be given a warm welcome”.
The afternoon flight to Nevis should also help passengers arriving in Antigua off BA and Virgin from London, off American Airlines from Miami and New York and off Air Canada from Toronto to get to Nevis the same day.
FlyMontserrat aircraft are also available for Charter and Medivac Flights throughout the Caribbean.
Bookings are currently available up until the 19th August and flights for later in the year will be entered soon. Nigel Harris said: “If passenger numbers increase we can react quickly and would be delighted to put on more flights if demand is there”. He added that FlyMontserrat is looking for opportunities in the region and is interested in connecting other islands in the Leeward chain.
