New Route for FlyMontserrat

FlyMontserratThe Montserrat-based airline FlyMontserrat has taken over the Antigua to Nevis route.

According to a release, LIAT pulled off the route earlier in the month, and FlyMontserrat stepped in, with a contract negotiated with the Nevis Island Administration to provide twice-daily services, five days a week, using its Islander aircraft.

The service will initially operate on Mondays, Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays, with the addition of a Wednesday service beginning on January 22.

The 25-minute flight will leave Antigua for Nevis at 11:30, returning at 12:15. Afternoon flights will leave Antigua for Nevis at 4:45, returning at 5:30.

The service will allow passengers to transfer to Europe, North America, and the  rest of the Caribbean through the Antiguan gateway.

Base single fares have been set at US$165 plus taxes.

Managing Director Nigel Harris met with hotel owners, agents, and officials, and said the airline was delighted to be returning to Nevis.

“The Nevis Island Administration have been pro-active in trying to seek a replacement to LIAT at a difficult time of year and at short notice,” he said. “I hope this will lead to a long-term relationship with the island, that the service will be well-used and we can expand air services further at some time in the future.”

FlyMontserrat has been operating in the region for nearly five years, flying scheduled services, mainly out of Antigua and Montserrat. It also flies charters throughout the Caribbean, carries freight and offers medivac facilities.
