Anguilla Reports Record Number of Private Jets for Holidays


There was no sign of an economic fall out on the island of Anguilla this holiday season, with some 215 private jet flights into the island. This is more evidence to support the argument that Anguilla is the top luxury spot in the Caribbean.

The island’s small Wallblake Airport came alive during the Christmas and New Year holiday season with a record-breaking number of executive jets roaring in and out of Anguilla. Causing near traffic jams on the tiny tarmac, and keeping staff working nearly round the clock, jets included Gulfstreams 4s and 5s, Falcon 900s, Citations, Lear Jets, Challengers, Hawkers, Astras, Embraer 135s, Global Expresses and Galaxies.

The activity began on December 19 and continued through January 5, with celebrity and VIP passengers staying at the signature luxury resorts and villas that dot the island.
