American Airlines is adding to the first-ever nonstop service from the United States to Anguilla.
The Miami-based route, which has been a game-changer for getting to the island, is expanding starting next month. .
On Oct. 7, American will be operating four flights each week between Miami and Anguilla.
On Nov. 3, American Airlines will run daily service to Anguilla, with two flights on Saturdays.
The following month on Dec. 18, American will be operating daily service along with two flights each day on Mondays, Wednesdays, Saturdays and Sundays.
What it means is unprecedented air access to the island, particularly for the winter season, opening up an island that was always one of the most sought-after vacation spots in the Caribbean, but among the most arduous to reach.
“Buckle up for a season of easy Anguilla travel,” the Anguilla Tourist Board said in a statement.
American Airlines continues to operate the Miami-Anguilla service on Embraeer 175 aircraft with 76 seats.
That includes 12 seats in first class, 20 Main Cabin Extra seats and 44 main cabins seats.
So where to stay?
Anguilla continues to boast a diverse range of resorts, from traditional grand luxury resorts like Cap Juluca, the Four Seasons and the Malliouhana to a slate of terrific residential resorts, including the newest place to stay on the island, Tranquility Beach.
That is along with the recently-rebranded and newly-transformed Aurora Anguilla, a complete reimagining of the former CuisinArt resort.
That resort continues to add new amenities, while anchoring around its spectacular Greg Norman-designed golf resort.
