Air Travel

Many travelers connect in Antigua, San Juan, St. Maarten, or St. Thomas. To Nevis, it's almost always cheaper to fly into St. Kitts and then take a regularly scheduled ferry, but check the schedules or book a transfer from your resort (if available) in advance. St. Kitts unveiled the YU Lounge, available not just to private jet passengers but any commercial travelers willing to pay for a restful, hassle-free executive retreat that eliminates the need to go through Customs and Immigration (and offering its own approved security screening).

There are nonstop flights to St. Kitts from Atlanta (Delta), as well as Charlotte, Miami, and New York–JFK (American). There are no nonstops from the United States to Nevis.
