“Hurricane Irma”
Review of Tradewind Aviation


Reviewed September 13, 2017 via mobile

Hello,
I was in Saint Barth when it has been touched by the hurricane Irma and had the chance to be evacuated thanks to Tradewind Aviation. I would like to thank them for what they did and Laetitia Decreuse for her help, I could not have been evacuated without both of them.
Thank you

The PERFECT way to avoid St Martin airport and arrive onto St Barts in style. Also have a passenger lounge in San Juan making this flight even nicer. Reaching San Juan is often easier than St Martin so another plus. The price is off set by the flight to reach SJU. The small plane has a "self serve" cabin steward cooler down the aisle with wine, beer and soft drinks. Arriving on SBH you have a teriffic view as all are window seats.

Everyone at Tradewind makes flying with them an absolute pleasure. Although Tripadvisor makes you pick a class of service and the only option available is economy...the level of service is first class! There are only 8 seats or less on the aircraft depending on configuration. Great flights!!

We have just had another fabulous experience flying with Tradewind.

We arrived in Antigua to connect to our scheduled flight to St Barths and were met by Dave, the local agent, who in his cheerful manner did his best to steer us through the bureaucracy that is Antigua Airport.

Although our flight was due to depart at 16.50, as we had arrived in Antigua three hours earlier, the aircraft was sent early and we were able to depart at 15.50. Therefore, full marks to Tradewind for getting us to St Barths an hour early !

The two pilots were very friendly and the Pilatus is a fabulous aircraft to fly in. We also took advantage of the refreshments in the cooler box on board, helping ourselves to a small bottle of white wine and a bottle of water.

All landings at St Barths are spectacular, this time we landed over the hill but only needed about half of the runway.

We have already booked our next flight to St Barths on Tradewind.

We usually route through St. Maarten and use Winair to get to St. Barths but decided to try Tradewind for the route home. Great improvement. San Juan is a much more organized airport than St. Maarten. Staff of Tradewind were attentive and friendly and the plane was air conditioned and very stable for the size. I very much enjoyed San Juan as well generally so will change our future routing.
