New air connectivity for Anguilla as CHL Airlines takes off

The Anguilla Tourist Board and CHL Airlines have partnered up to offer a new scheduled route into Anguilla, specifically catering for UK visitors. 

Starting December 20th, this will offer the option to connect to Anguilla’s Clayton J Lloyd International Airport from Antigua V.C Bird International Airport.

The route will provide greater flexibility for holidaymakers and travellers to Anguilla from the UK’s preferred route of Antigua.

Additional access is via the USA, San Juan (Connecting with Norwegian) or via boat transfer from St Martin to Blowing Point (London via Paris with KLM & Air France).

The flights have been timed to connect with the direct British Airways and Virgin Atlantic arrivals from London as well as regional arrivals from other Caribbean islands.

The scheduled flights have been carefully planned to minimise waiting time after the long haul flight from the UK.

The CHL Airlines route into Anguilla will operate two return flights per day on Tuesdays and Wednesdays to begin with.

Carolyn Brown, director UK & Ireland for the Anguilla Tourist Board, commented: “The new route is fantastic news for independent UK travellers and the local Anguilla marketing traveling to and from Antigua. 

“Not only does it allow greater choice and flexibility beyond the current route options but it also provides a very affordable option for those looking to take a last minute trip across from Antigua to Anguilla.

“With easier access to the island, combined with three new hotels openings this season and the island celebrating 50 years since the Anguilla Revolution, 2017 is set to be an exciting year for Anguilla!”

The flights are now live and available to book online.

CHL Airlines will also continue to provide private charter flights for those wishing to travel outside of the scheduled weekly flights.
