Anguilla becomes even more accessible with new winter flights

Toronto – Lovers of sun and sand, rejoice: the tropical paradise of Anguilla is going to feel a lot closer this Winter. Beginning in November 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 serves as the gateway to ever-luxurious Anguilla, as the secluded destination does not receive direct flights or cruise ships and is instead 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 November 20
Air Canada, rolling out a greatly expanded flight schedule from December 15
Air Transat, resuming weekly Saturday flights to SXM on December 22
Sunwing, introducing weekly Thursday flights from February 28 onwards
Regarded as something of a hidden gem in the Caribbean, Anguilla made international headlines over the summer when Lebron James elected to spend a portion of his offseason vacationing in a lavish Meads Bay villa. The charming island once again garnered global attention 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.

For travellers looking to escape the Canadian cold this season, Anguilla stands out as a destination of choice. With 33 white sand beaches and a variety of luxurious accommodations available to suit any budget, Anguilla offers a winning combination of natural beauty and easy-going elegance. Beach lovers from around the world are invited to take advantage of the new flights this winter and discover why Anguilla lives up to its reputation as “beyond extraordinary.”
