The Anguilla Air Express will operate a Beechcraft 1900D Turbo Prop Airplane with seating capacity for 19 in leather reclining cabin chairs on this route. A captain and first officer will pilot the flight.
Departures out of San Juan are at 1:30PM and at 5:30PM and departures from Anguilla are at 9:00AM and 3:00PM, and flying time is approximately 46 minutes. Bookings will be made direct using an 800 number or online, and negotiations are currently underway for guests to be able to book flights through their hotel.
Ticket prices start at US$399.00 per person, including taxes. The emphasis of the Anguilla Air Express will be on first class, personalized service, with an agent meeting all passengers at the gate and escorting them through security and to the departure gate in San Juan, and through Immigration and Customs on arrival in Anguilla. The same level of service will apply on the return journey, with all passengers greeted at aircraft by an agent, then escorted through Immigration and Customs in San Juan.
