“Great service as always”
Review of Tradewind Aviation


Reviewed 19 October 2018

Had to book a flight to the FRENCH ISLANDS, and my only option was Tradewinds via SBH. CAn't complaint, their service is always outstanding and the staff is always in top of every detail, their pilots extremely friendly and courteous. This is not my first time with them, I even coincide with their prsident in a flight to SBH once, very attntive person and down to earth. Of course a good business man.

First off...was only given "economy" as a choice on "class of service" and full disclosure, this was actually a shared charter. The flight left just a bit after we were supposed to because of a delay coming in from another island. My wife and I had a very tight connection going through San Juan and even as "trusted travelers" going through customs, it would have been difficult to make our flight. The pilot stayed with us through customs, through ag inspection, and right up to check in. Even helped with our luggage. I am so sorry I didn't get his name. We can't imagine taking a different carrier to St Barth and over the years have tried many. Well worth the bump in price in a world where time is money not to mention the convenience of going through Puerto Rico vs St Martin.

This is definitely the best way to get from the US to St. Barth. The plane is usually a 12 seater. The airline has its own private waiting area in the San Juan airport. You have a personal escort to the plane. Once you get on the plane, it's about an hour flight. Sit back and relax. They really do take great care of you.

The Tradewinds flight from San Juan to St. Barth's is easy and comfortable. The staff and pilots were friendly and helpful when going through customs on our return flight to San Juan from St. Barth's. This is the easiest way to get to St. Barth's while the St. Martin airport is rebuilt. The cost of the flight is pricey.

This is how an airlines SHOULD BE! The flight crews both getting to and from Gustavia, St Barthelemy couldn't have been nicer. They were friendly and helpful. They truly took care of us, even going so far as to recommend sites to see and visit. On our way home our pilots and one of the people at the airport were extremely friendly, walking with us through the maze of the airport and the gentleman at the airport walked us to the lounge for travelers who have a long layover. These people were absolutely wonderful! We can't say enough good things about them. We can't wait to see them again next year!
