Island Hop to St. Barths in Style This Season With Tradewind Aviation

For those of you who don’t respect Labor Day as a seasonal divider, Autumn 2012: The Northern Hemisphere edition begins this weekend. Do you know what that means? If you’re an affluent, stylish opinion leader—and if you’re reading this, of course you are—it means there’s work to do. For one thing, you’ve got to shift your seasonal beach playground from the Côte d’Azur to St. Barths. Don’t worry, your super yacht will meet you there, along with Jay-Z, Beyonce, and Blue Ivy, but how will you get yourself to that gorgeous little speck in the azure waters? Here’s how: By private charter or premium scheduled service on a Tradewind Aviation Pilatus PC-12.


Sure, you could fly commercial, but you’d be at the mercy of all these massive carriers and their limited schedules. It’s so much cooler and more comfortable to arrive in style on one of Tradewind’s many scheduled flights to St. Barths. They’ve expanded their San Juan-St. Barths service with up to 15 flights a day, which means that no matter when you touch down in Puerto Rico, you’ll be wheels up and St. Barths-bound in the time it takes to sip a daiquiri. They’ve added a new Antigua-St. Barths route, which connects seamlessly with the British Airways flights to and from London.  And, if you’re really a player, you can charter one of their fancy planes to island-hop between St. Barths, Anguilla, Tortola, Nevis, Antigua, Mustique, and the Dominican Republic like the swashbuckler you are. They’ve got private jets from the U.S. too, if you’re really looking for convenience. Visit the Tradewind Aviation website for all the details.
Once you’re in St. Barths, whip out your iPhone or Android, onto which you’ve downloaded the BlackBook Guides app, and check out the best the island has to offer. The BlackBook Guide to St. Barths covers such local hot spots as Bagatelle, Nikki Beach, and Le Ti. See you there.
