If you are not doing a cruise trip or are on your own boat, the obvious choice to get to Antigua is the aircraft. VC Bird International Airport, named after the country's first president, is one of the larger airports in the east Caribbean. I departed from the old terminal which had the problem of being overcrowded. After 2015, a new building became operational which I hope does not have the same problems.

Antigua has flights to many airports in the USA. Air Canada connects Antigua with Toronto while British Airways, Condor and Virgin Atlantic serve European destinations. Beside that , regional services are flown by LIAT, Caribbean Airlines and some smaller carriers. Some seasonal charter flights from other european and US airlines are also available. There is NO departure tax any more to pay when leaving, it is included in your airline ticket (2016).

Taxis are available until the last flight arrives. A trip from the airport to St. John's may cost you around 20 US$ (2008), depending on where exactly you want to go to. If you have some time to kill at the airport, there is a nice park with an observation tower in front of it (formerly) called Stanford Park.
