It’s Easier To Discover Anguilla

Canadians will find that it is easier to discover Anguilla 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 Anguilla, as the secluded destination does not receive direct flights or cruise ships and is instead accessible by ferry.

Cardigan Connor, Anguilla’s Parliamentary Secretary for Tourism and Sports, said, “We’re thrilled that more Canadians will have the chance to enjoy the hospitality and comfort of Anguilla this winter.”

Connor continued, “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 Nov. 20
  • Air Canada, rolling out a greatly expanded flight schedule from Dec. 15
  • Air Transat, resuming weekly Saturday flights to SXM on Dec. 22
  • Sunwing, introducing weekly Thursday flights from Feb. 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 off season 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.”
