How to get to Nevis, West Indies

Despite its diminutive size and relative isolation, Nevis is readily accessible from both the States and Europe. Arriving by air provides you with dramatic dreamscapes as you come into land, and approaching via the sea means the journey offers a mesmerising view of the tiny island with her head in the clouds.

The easiest way to discover Nevis is to land on neighbouring St Kitts at the Robert L Bradshaw airport.

British Airways departs twice weekly from London Gatwick and, flying via Antigua, takes 9 hours and fifty minutes. Connections can be made in Antigua for flights departing London Gatwick with Virgin Atlantic, or from Frankfurt and Paris with Condor Airlines and Air France respectively; typically, connections onto St Kitts are with LIAT Airlines. We find the British Airways option, flying Wednesdays and Saturdays throughout the year, is the easiest route when flying from Europe.

From the US, choose American Airlines for a non-stop service from JFK, Miami or Charlotte; from Miami, there are twice daily flights four days a week in season. Delta flies from Atlanta, and in the winter months there is the new weekly United Airlines service from Newark.  Accessing Nevis is becoming easier year upon year.

From Canada, you can fly with Air Canada direct from Toronto to St Kitts once a week.

Landing on St Kitts, those staying at the Four Seasons will be met by staff who will then provide an escort by private launch to the Resort on Nevis. The Four Seasons’ signature rum punch is the perfect companion to the 40 minute crossing over The Narrows with its stunning views of the island. Guests arrive at the resort’s private dock on Nevis where they are welcomed and escorted directly to their villa.

Four Seasons Resort Nevis recently partnered with the YU Lounge at St Kitts, an exclusive, private airport terminal with a concierge service and luxurious lounge. Commercial and private passengers will be picked up plane-side in a Porsche Cayenne and whisked directly to the arrivals lounge. Immigration, customs and check-in is discretely completed for passengers. Rates start at US$290 per adult for a round trip in the low season. Enjoy this new seamless service from the steps of the plane to the pier on Nevis.

Within the Caribbean there are a plethora of island-hopping airlines such as Winair, Tradewind Aviation, Cape Air and Seaborne landing on Nevis. Vance Amory International airport is perched on the northern edge of the island, and there is something incomparably romantic about looking down on a paradise of white sand beaches and verdant palms from the seat of a prop plane.

Tradewind Aviation, Seaborne and Cape Air fly directly from San Juan, Puerto Rico to Nevis. In 2015, Tradewind Aviation began operating a seasonal flight from nearby St. Barths, enabling the enticing possibility of a daytrip to the vibrant party island.

With a modern terminal and new control tower, private jets are welcome to land at Nevis airport. Detailed FBO information is available from Omel Wilkin; please contact us for more details.
