Skillful pilots in a twin otter will take you off and put you down in less space than you thought possible. What a gorgeous thrilling ride to get to "The Unspoiled Queen" (Saba). I can't wait to do it again.

The flight out of St. Maarten was delayed by 5 hours due to weather, and information was slow about the length of the delay. Once the plane landed and was refueled the flight was boarded and we took off without further issue. The Pilots were friendly and apologised for the extreme delay. They flew above the storms and made the...

Extremely small plane. could feel claustrophobic for flight anxious passengers. Fortunately, I am not anxious about flights. Crew was nice and the flight was smooth. Avoid carrying too much or large luggage.

We had a great experience with Winair traveling to Saba. They were nice and professional and the landing at Saba was incredible!! We will definitely use them again.

Had booked four flights. Each flight the schedule was changed. Some earlier some later. Not reliable or trustworthy to make plans. They have never heard of the internet and can't send an email to inform passengers of the flight? Not a bargin. 3rd world travel at fist work price. I hope they go out of business. LIAT is better.

I had timely cancelled a flight scheduled for June 30th, '17 at which time the WINAIR representative informed me that I was entitled to rebook anytime in the next year for the cost of...

We travelled from Cane Field Dominica's smaller airport to make a connecting flight in Antigua and found it most convenient and less stressful experience to connect to the long haul to London from Antigua. Normally, the tried and tested mode of travel, connecting to London is from Douglas Charles (newly named) via Barbados or Antigua. Whether it is going to...

Its always wonderful to take a flight through the Caribbean with Winair and its partners. Winair provides comfortable seating and wonderful service to various neighboring Caribbean islands.

“This is a small plane with spartan accommodations and no in-flight services. The flights are short.”
