Seaborne Airlines has announced the addition of non-stop service between San Juan Luis Muñoz Marín International Airport (SJU) to Clayton J. Lloyd International airport on the island of Anguilla (AXA), with service starting on 30 April 2015.
With the addition of Anguilla, Seaborne will now serve 16 destinations throughout the Caribbean. This is as many destinations as was offered at San Juan before Seaborne established a hub there.
Anguilla passengers can use Seaborne Airlines for seamless connections with the carrier's portfolio of partner airlines. Flights will also be marketed by American Airlines through a codeshare agreement, and will be available for sale on all American Airlines distribution channels. Additional Seaborne connecting partners include Air Europa, Delta Air Lines, JetBlue, and United Airlines.
Overall, Seaborne and its partner carriers offer non-stop service to 32 destinations in the Americas and Europe from San Juan. Seaborne's expanding network out of San Juan has helped solidify San Juan's position as the Caribbean's largest hub.
"We are excited to help facilitate travel to the beautiful island of Anguilla with Seaborne's unparalleled customer service," declared Gary Foss, CEO and president of Seaborne Airlines. "The service would not have been possible without the support of The Puerto Rico Tourism Company and the Anguilla Tourism Board. We thank them for their support."
Seaborne's service into Anguilla will launch on 30 April and operate three times weekly using Saab 340s on Thursday, Saturday and Sunday. Flights will leave San Juan at 13:00 and arrive in Anguilla at 14:05. In the opposite direction, pushback from Anguilla will be at 14:50 with touchdown in San Juan at 15:55.
