The flight is executed by Air antilles, with very well maintained atr aircraft. The flight is 1:45 minutes, comfortable. When departing keep in mind that Las Americas airport is chaotic, be on time for check in and controls

Flight was delayed for 3 hours with zero explanations. The twin otter was very cramped and had zero air circulating while instead giving paddles as fans. There was no safety demonstration the pilot had just told old us to read the manual and to leave the seatbelt on. I understand this is the only airline serving certain destinations however I...

Flight delayed and no information available. I had to transfer for my flight. Getting luggage was a nightmare. Understand the challenges with infrastructure due to hurricane Maria but the area was very disorganized. The lack of information available was very frustrating.

This flight is always exciting and very short. You NEED to add landing on the worlds shortest commercial runway (on Saba) to your bucket list. The Winair pilots know their stuff and have always felt safe in their hands. Have done this run about five or six times. These are small planes..no amenities but for 20 minutes who cares?!

We had a return flight from Sint Maarten to Saint Barths. We were the only passengers, so it felt like a private plane. The flight only takes 11 minutes, the landing is a adventure! Better than the average roller coaster.
