Flights to Antigua and Barbuda from Canada range from about 11h-20h. The precise length of your flight will depend on your departure city, as well as the number and length of any stopovers. If you’re departing from a city like Toronto, which serves multiple daily flights to Antigua and is geographically located in eastern Canada, you’ll likely enjoy flights on the shorter end of the spectrum, although a stopover is likely. While if you’re departing from a city in the western provinces, you’ll not only have one or more stopovers, your flight time will be longer due to geographical location.
Unfortunately, there are no direct flights to Antigua from Canada. However, you can book a flight with fewer stopovers by knowing which airlines regularly fly into Antigua and seeing which airport they service that’s closest to you. The three major airlines that fly into Antigua and Barbuda from Canada are Air Canada, Sunwing Airlines, and WestJet. When you do book Antigua flight deals with stopovers, you can expect these to occur in common layover cities like Toronto, Dallas, Miami, and Port of Spain.
When you fly to Antigua, you’ll alight at V.C. Bird International Airport (ANU), about 8km northeast of Antigua and Barbuda’s capital city, St. John’s. You’ll likely stay in St. John’s, English Harbour, or Half Moon Bay, three of the most popular destinations spread across the island of Antigua. There are no public transportation options at the airport, so your best bet is renting a car or taking a taxi. A taxi from the airport to St. John’s city centre costs about C$60 and is a 10-minute journey. To reach English Harbour from the airport, you can travel the 19km by taxi, which will cost about C$73 and take around 20 minutes. To Half Moon Bay from the airport, a taxi would cost about C$85 and take about a half-hour to reach your destination.
Antigua is the larger of the two islands that make up the Caribbean island nation of Antigua and Barbuda. It’s popular for its warm sandy beaches and azure waters that are ringed with stunning coral reefs. Be sure to visit Nelson’s Dockyard, the historical port that today boasts green space aplenty, charming cafés and bars, and shops filled with local treasures. Dickenson Bay in St. John is considered one of Antigua’s best beaches, boasting a beautiful setting and a plethora of watersports to try your hand at. Originally built in the 17th century as a sugar plantation mill, Betty’s Hope is now a fascinating museum with picturesque views that offers glimpses into Antigua colonial past.
Canadian citizens travelling to Antigua and Barbuda need a valid passport to embark on their journey, although a visa is not required.
