Anguilla announces new executive air service to the island


NEW YORK, NY – Anguilla’s Ministry of Tourism has announced the launch of a new executive air service, which will operate between San Juan, Puerto Rico and Anguilla. The new service, scheduled to start on February 14, 2009, will be provided on the Anguilla Air Express and operated by Rainbow International Airlines, Inc.

Rainbow International Airlines, Inc. is one of the premiere charter companies in the region and currently operates executive charter service out of major hubs in the Caribbean including San Juan, St. Maarten, Antigua, Barbados, and St. Kitts. They also serve a number of five-star properties, including Malliouhana Hotel, Four Seasons, and Raffles, to name a few. They are the airline of choice for guests seeking the comfort, luxury, and convenience of a private jet service, and this same quality of service will be offered to visitors traveling on the Anguilla Air Express.

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 1:30 pm and at 5:30 pm and departures from Anguilla are at 9:00 am and 3:00 pm with flying time 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.
