John A Osborne Airport
Montserrat was without an airport for eight years after the 1997 closure of WH Bramble Airport which was damaged beyond repair after the Soufrière Hills volcano erupted. In 2005, John A Osborne Airport opened becoming Montserrat’s primary air hub. Originally named Gerald’s Airport after the nearest village, it was changed in 2008 to honor Montserrat’s long-standing Chief Minister.
Today, this small airport handles Winair flights to St Martin as well as direct flights to Antigua on FlyMontserrat and SVG Air. FlyMontserrat and SVG Air both offer a variety of charters between Montserrat and dozens of other Caribbean islands.
The amenities inside the single-floor terminal include a restaurant, comfortable waiting room and the Last Chance Souvenir and Gift Shop. John A Osborne Airport is the Caribbean’s only airport with a public tunnel beneath its runway. Taxis and minibuses are the main form of public transportation between the airport and the rest of Montserrat.
