The Caribbean island of Anguilla is going to feel a lot closer this winter. Beginning this month and continuing through February, Canadian airlines including Westjet, Air Canada, Sunwing, and Air Transat will be rolling out additional flights to Saint Martin’s Princess Juliana International Airport (SXM).
Saint Martin is the gateway to ever-luxurious Anguilla, as the secluded destination does not receive direct flights or cruise ships, but is easily accessible by ferry.
“We’re thrilled that more Canadians will have the chance to enjoy the hospitality and comfort of Anguilla this winter,” said Cardigan Connor, Anguilla’s Parliamentary Secretary for Tourism and Sports. “We welcome more visitors from Canada each year than almost any other country, and we’re happy to report that our combination of brilliant beaches and inspired cuisine keeps them coming back.”
As fall gives way to winter, Canadians can enjoy increased access to Anguilla with the following major airlines:
Westjet, adding an additional flight every Tuesday beginning 20NOV
Air Canada, rolling out a greatly expanded flight schedule from 15DEC
Air Transat, resuming weekly Saturday flights to SXM on 22DEC
Sunwing, introducing weekly Thursday flights from 28FEB onwards
Anguilla garnered global attention this year when it was recognized in the 2018 Travel + Leisure World’s Best Awards, retaining its top spot as the #1 island in the Caribbean for the second year in a row.
