Flights from St. Maarten to Tobago--LIAT??

We need to get from St. Maarten to Tobago. I was unable to find a direct flight. What I found is to take LIAT to Trinidad and then we'd have to take Caribbean Air from Trinidad to Tobago.

Any other known ways to make this trip?

Thanks.

Did you look into WINAIR?

LIAT is about the only game in town for what you ar looking for...except maybe for BWIA.

They used to fly direct from SM to Tobago once a week I think.

Call them and see

Liat is about your only way to get there.

Thanks for your help.

Tried Winair and not an option. Yes, Liat is the only way, well part way. Looks like we have to fly SXM to Trinidad on Liat and then Caribbean Air from Trinidad to Tobago.

Hope we make the connections. We traveled Liat this June and were very late in getting to the destination. If we had connecting fights we probably wouldn't have made it.

Not sure how much time to allow between flights. Caribbean Air is known for being booked solid so if you don't make your flight you have to go standby until you are lucky, sometimes a day or two later. Heard some nightmare stories about this.

Oh, the agonies of flying...but it does get you to some awesome places.

So...how reliable is LIAT ???
