Airfare to Saba
This island only gets about 25,000 visitors each year, and that makes getting discount airfare to Saba a little difficult. The country’s only international airport is the Juancho E. Yrausquin Airport and it has a reputation for being dangerous due to its short runway and the frequent high winds.
Which airlines have flights to Saba?
The only airline that flies into Saba is Winward Islands Airways, more commonly known as Winair, and they only fly from nearby St. Maarten, about 5 times per day, wind permitting. However, you can book on many different major airlines including US Airways, Delta, and American. You’ll fly on that airline into St. Maarten and then to Saba on Winair. Considering the situation, the airfares can be quite reasonable.
From Europe you can fly to St. Maarten from Amsterdam or London, and then connect there to Winair on the same ticket.
Saving money on your flight to Saba
The lack of competition makes getting discount airfare to Saba tough, so the best advice is to book as early as possible. Saba doesn’t get the resort traffic so they aren’t quite as seasonal as some other islands, except of course for hurricane season. Flying Tuesday or Wednesday usually helps get lower airfare, but on a place with so few flights even this is unpredictable.
