(St. Johns, Antigua and Barbuda)
Situated 8 km / 5 miles north-east of the Antiguan capital of St. Johns, Antigua VC Bird International Airport (ANU) is the only airport located on the island of Antigua. Located to the south-east of Barnes Hill, Boons Bay and Cedar Grove, VC Bird Airport operates as the main gateway to Barbuda and is an important hub for LIAT airlines (Leeward Islands Air Transport).
This busy airport houses both domestic and international carriers in a single terminal and serves passengers to destinations in North America and Europe, with the greatest influx of flights coming in from the US. Currently, the Antigua and Barbuda Millennium Airport organisation are planning improvements, to ensure that the VC Bird Airport has a healthy and prosperous future, and continues to maintain its high standards.
Driving from the airport to St. Johns' city centre takes only ten minutes and can be accomplished via the Old Parham Road or the Antigua Sugar Factory Road. Most prominent hotels can arrange shuttle buses to transport clients from the airport to their hotel, and taxis operate on fixed fares to many local destinations. In some cases, helicopters can be chartered in order to explore neighbouring islands in the Caribbean.
