Caribbean-On-Line / St. Barts / Transportation / New Helicopter Service

New Helicopter Service

St. Maarten/St. Martin's only helicopter service, Heli St. Martin, has been operational since August 2006 and celebrated its official opening in early November 2006, with service seven days a week from the airport in Grand Case. Before offering the service, Heli St. Martin acquired all necessary permits and certifications to comply with the rules and regulations of the relevant international and local authorities. The helicopter, a Eurocopter EC 120-B Colibri, is a newer and quieter model. However, because it is a single turbine helicopter, it can only fly the short distance between St. Maarten/St. Martin, Anguilla and St Barth. The company hopes to purchase a twin turbine helicopter within a year and a half that will be able to fly longer distances. Although this is an expensive alternative to the ferry and the normal flights to St Barth, it is another option. For more details, visit http://www.helistmartin.com/islandtours.php and http://www.airsxm.eu/page.php?page=35.

Hi, just wanted to know if Heli St. Martin is still working, I can't find updated news, and if it's not what are the options.

thanks

Regarding Heli St Martin: They are no longer in operation due to an illness in the family. Other options include taking WinAir, St Barth Commuter or Air Caraibe from Julianna Airport on the Dutch side or taking the ferry, The Voyager, from Marigot on the French side.
