WINAIR REFUELS IN ANGUILLA

The Anguilla airspace was not only filled with increased passenger traffic due to the busy Christmas holiday period, but also by a number of the incoming flights, particularly by WINAIR, for refueling.

This unusual refueling in Anguilla, by Lloyd’s Aviation Services at the Clayton J. Lloyd International Airport, was due to a shortage of fuel in St. Maarten, according to information reaching The Anguillian.
Manager of Lloyd Aviation Services, Mrs. Kelita Lloyd, told the local newspaper that WINAIR’s requests for fuel began around December 31 and continued over the following days into this week. She said that a number of private jets also flew into Anguilla from St. Maarten’s Princess Juliana International Airport for Jet-A fuel from Lloyd’s Aviation Services.


Mrs. Lloyd noted that last year jets flew in from St. Maarten for refueling, not because of a shortage of fuel there, but because there was less traffic in Anguilla. This afforded the jets a quicker turnaround.

It could not be immediately ascertained how many gallons of fuel were provided for WINAIR and the private jets as the figures were not yet complied. The fuel was transported by trucks to the airport at Wallblake from the bulk station close to the runway.

Mrs. Lloyd said the management of Lloyd’s Aviation Services was delighted to be part of the airline service industry and to work with aircraft operators not only in Anguilla, but in the Caribbean, the United States, South America and Europe. “We are ambassadors of Anguilla,” she added.
