Before you Fly

Bookings

Please make sure we have your contact details. This is particularly important if we have to change the time of your flight. If you do not have a local number or pick up your e-mails so we can contact you in advance please reconfirm your flight the day before travel.

Antigua's New Terminal

The new Terminal is now open in Antigua. There are teething problems with new systems so please allow extra time when connecting. Refreshments are currently limited both landside and airside but if you have a long wait for your connection, the Big Banana is still open upstairs in the old Terminal next door.

** For passengers travelling to or from Antigua & Barbuda - The Antigua Airport Administration Charge of US$37.50 is payable AT CHECK-IN ON DEPARTURE for flights inbound to and outbound from Antigua if passengers are not in transit using Antigua Airport within 24 hours. As proof of transit passengers must show their onward/inbound ticket/itinerary to check-in staff. Failure to show proof of transit will result in the tax being charged.

Return Flight Requirements

Visitors who cannot give evidence of their right to live in Montserrat, Nevis or Antigua must either purchase a return or onward ticket or show evidence of having a return or onward booking which they must show to check-in staff on departure. Without this passengers will either have to buy a return ticket before proceeding with check-in or could be denied boarding with no refund. If in doubt please check with the island authorities.

Connections

FlyMontserrat is a point-to-point airline which means that passengers on connecting flights in Antigua must first clear Immigration /Customs formalities, collect their baggage and check-in for the next flight; baggage cannot be ‘through-checked’ to the final destination.

While FlyMontserrat makes every effort to operate on-time it is not responsible for missed-connections. Delays caused by situations outside the Company’s control (for example bad weather, airport closures, security delays and airport personnel strikes) that inconvenience passengers who miss onward flight connections, meetings or have to stay overnight in hotels will not be the responsibility of FlyMontserrat. It is advised that passengers take out insurance to help compensate them in this eventuality. We also recommend that passengers allow at least two and a half hours connection time, especially at peak-travel times at V.C. Bird International Airport, Antigua.

Minimum Connecting Times

How much time to allow between arrival in Antigua by air and our departure time is up to the customer to decide. We advise that AT LEAST two and a half hours should be enough but we do not GUARANTEE this because:

  • Incoming flights can be late arriving
  • There can be delays and congestion at immigration and/or customs on arrival (sometimes an hour for a fully laden 747)

Passengers should remember our check in CLOSES an hour before departure.

Remember that the US$35 change facility on FlyMontserrat bookings is NOT available after the ticketed check-in time.

Suggestion: If a passenger knows that their incoming flight is delayed and they will not make their connection they should contact us during opening hours (7am to 6pm) before they depart to change their reservation. We will do our best to re-accommodate passengers but changes are subject to availability.

Taking out travel insurance might cover your loss if you are delayed.

Do not attempt to check these items. Carry them with you in the passenger cabin (subject to carry-on baggage limitations).

Refund requests must be made to FlyMontserrat, info@flymontserrat.com within 7 days of the original travel date.

You are strongly advised to purchase personal Travel Insurance that includes coverage for Cancellation and Curtailment.

Changing your booking

Check your flight itinerary to see whether the flight you have booked is changeable.

If changes are allowed they must be made before your ticketed check-in time by telephoning or visiting FlyMontserrat’s office in Montserrat, e-mailing them on info@flymontserrat.com, or visiting FlyMontserrat’s handling agents in Antigua, Nevis or Barbuda (during opening hours). No changes can be made after the ticketed check-in time and unused tickets past the ticketed departure time will be considered as flown and have no value.

On standard (YOW & BBQOW) fares only, flightdates, times, and routes are changeable subject to seat availability, at the rate of US$35 per one way flight/per person/per change. In addition, to these flight change fees, any price difference between the original total price paid and the lowest total price available at the time of the flight change is charged.

Round Trip Specials (TRT) and discount fares first have to be upgraded to a full YOW fare and then the change can be made (as above).

Please note that if the total price on the new flight is lower, no refund will be made and the change fee is still applicable.

A passenger name can be changed at the rate of US$35 per passenger per sector. Any name change made to a flight reservation must be for that individual passenger’s complete flight itinerary.

Your ticket is valid for transportation from your point of origin, possibly via a stop-over to the destination as shown on your ticket. The fare you have paid is calculated on this basis. Should you wish to change your journey and disembark at an airport other than your ticketed destination your new journey will be recalculated and you will be given the option of accepting the new price or maintaining your original journey as ticketed. Should you change your journey without our agreement we reserve the right to assess the correct fare for your actual travel and collect from you any difference between the fare you have paid and the fare applicable for your revised journey.

Ticket Park:

If you need to change your date of travel but do not have a new date - park your ticket in our new “Ticket Park” facility. This enables you to ‘park’ your ticket up to a given date which gives you time to work out your changed travel plans and change your flight. To use the ticket park, similar conditions apply to making a change – contact the office for full details - upgrade (if necessary) your fare to a full YOW fare, pay the change fee and then when you choose the flight you want (subject to availability) the change is free of charge (unless there has been any change in fares or taxes). Any ticket in our ticket park must be removed from the park before the ticket park expiry date or it will be considered used and have no value.

Check-In

If you already have an e-ticket you should proceed directly to the check-in desk and present your confirmation/itinerary with booking reference together with your passport.

All checked and carry-on baggage must be presented at the check-in desk for weighing and labelling. Any unlabelled carry-on baggage will not be allowed on the aircraft. Purchases made in the departures area will be allowed on board if the total carry-on is within weight and size limits.

Check-in desks open two hours prior to scheduled departure, except for early morning departures before 08.15 where the desk opens 1hr 15 mins before departure. Early check-in is highly recommended. Check-in closes strictly 60 minutes before the scheduled time of departure. Passengers who have not COMPLETED check-in by this deadline, and reached the departure gate 30 minutes prior to departure, might have their flight cancelled.
Formalities relating to departure taxes and Antiguan Airport taxes will be conducted at the check-in desk.

On-Line check-in

Passengers have the facility to check-in on-line 24 hours before departure. This can be done through the ‘Online Check-in’ box on the FlyMontserrat website www.flymontserrat.com

Passengers can confirm the timing of their flight and print their boarding pass but they MUST still present themselves at the check-in counter at least one hour before departure to have their baggage tagged and weighed, complete passenger departure tax formalities, and have their passports checked. Passengers who have not gone through these processes at the check-in desk will be asked to return to the check-in desk and, if delayed by the return, risk missing their flights. In Montserrat, Barbuda and Nevis only, check-in time for passengers who check in on-line can be reduced to 45 minutes.

Formalities relating to departure taxes and Antiguan Airport taxes will be conducted at the check-in desk.

The unaccompanied minor procedure is applied for a child between 5 and 12 years old, not accompanied by an adult over 18 years of age.

A child under 5 years of age is not accepted for transportation on FlyMontserrat flights if not accompanied by an adult.

FlyMontserrat escort

FlyMontserrat flights have no flight attendants (cabin crew) on its aircraft and therefore cannot provide an escort for unaccompanied minors.

Parents or guardians must arrange:

  • The necessary travel documents;
  • For an authorised adult on departure to stay at the airport until the flight is airborne;
  • For an authorised adult upon arrival to be at the airport at the actual time of arrival (contact details of the person must exist in the UM Handling Advice Form as well as in the reservation record);
  • Sign the “Handling advice” form;
  • Pay all costs involved in return transportation (meals, accommodation, ground transport, return fare, etc.) in case the authorized adult fails to meet the UM upon arrival.

FlyMontserrat will accept up to two unaccompanied minors between 5 years and 16 years of age as escort facilities are not available.

Infants

Infants are those under two years old at the time of travel (before their 2nd birthday) while the youngest age an infant can be to travel is 48 hours old.

FlyMontserrat have a special Infant fare of USD 10 one-way when the infant does not have his/her own seat, but sits on an adult’s lap. If you want your infant to sit in his/her own seat (only between 6 -23 months), you will be charged the applicable adult fare. This cannot be booked online so please contact the FlyMontserrat office. There must be one adult accompanying each infant seated on an adult’s lap. If one adult wishes to travel with a second infant, this is only possible if the second infant is seated in an approved car-type seat and the applicable adult fare will be charged. If the second infant is under 6 months you must travel with a second accompanying adult.

Please ensure that any important infant supplies (baby milk etc) travel in your carry-on. Security currently allows baby milk to be exempt from the liquids regulations although you might be asked to taste it. Please check the current security regulations for the airport you are using.

Flying with your pets

FlyMontserrat policy on carrying pets and guide/assistance dogs:

Because our aircraft are small, without aisles and with no door preventing access to the cockpit, in the interests of safety all animals (including guide/assistance dogs) have to be carried in crates. These will be placed in the baggage compartment immediately behind the rear seats. A responsible person must travel on the aircraft with the pet.

All pets MUST be pre-booked with the office, advising us of the size and weight of the crate containing the animal. This is to ensure that there is room on the aircraft.

  • Crates with animal - total weight under 50 lbs US$50
  • Crates with animals - total weight between 50-70lbs US$100

For any crate with animal with total weight over 70 lbs we will need special assistance in handling. Price on request.

All owners must have the appropriate vetinary clearance paperwork for their pet to travel to its destination. This might include vetinary inspections and must be organized in advance.

Pets without vetinary clearances will not be allowed to travel.

Container Requirements

You must have a correctly sized container otherwise we may have to refuse to take your pet. The following requirements must be met:

  • The container must be large enough for the pet to stand up, turn around and lie down in a natural manner, leaving at least 2 inches between the top of your pet’s head and the roof of the cage. Your pet should be as comfortable as possible
  • The container must be strong enough to protect your pet during transport, be secure enough to contain it and have sufficient ventilation on all four sides.
  • The door must be secured in such a manner that it cannot open accidentally or your pet cannot open it during handling and transport

  • Your pet's nose and paws should not be able to fit through any ventilation opening or door mesh
  • The container must have a water pot accessible from the outside
  • Containers should be made from wood (not fibreboard), rigid plastic or fiberglass.

Many pet shops sell containers suitable for air travel or you can have one made to measure to the International Air Transportation Association specifications. Further information can be found on the IATA website at http://www.iata.org/animals

Group Travel

Due to the limited capacity of FlyMontserrat aircraft we do not offer special group fares. However for groups of up to seven adults travelling together to or from Montserrat (or 9 passengers travelling to or from Nevis) we have special Private Charter rates .
Please see our charter prices section for rates, click here

Passenger Profiles

FlyMontserrat customers can create ‘passenger profiles’ which will then store all their passport and contact details so that when they book all the information is downloaded at the touch of a button, making the booking process far quicker and easier. Attaching existing profile information to bookings will help passengers making bookings on-line as well as in the office or on the telephone.

Passengers will be able to access their ‘Profile Area’ to see the history of all their flights and it is planned that FlyMontserrat will use the flights stored in these Profiles to benefit each passenger through a Loyalty Scheme.

Profiles can be set up either during the on-line booking process or when making a booking in the office. FlyMontserrat’s staff are there to help with this.
