INTRO: Thanks A Million

AirStMaarten wishes you a happy new year 2010

Dear friends and clients,

2009 will go down as  the year of the big Le Select Birthday Bash and how it singlehandedly save St. Barths from suffering too badly from the financial crisis and the subsequent economic downturn. Visitor traffic to St. Barths in November 2009 was unlike anything I have ever seen and certainly taxed our capacities to the max.

The exposure for St. Barths and attraction of the 60th anniversary celebrations for Le Select, owned by Marius Stakelborough (seen here above in the photo with Jimmy Buffett and long time friend Paul Morrow) was certainly worth a million dollars to everyone. For this special occasion Paul handed two specially made million dollar bills to Marius in honour of his 80th birthday.

So to all our friends and clients who booked with us in 2009: Thanks A Million!

Special thanks to Paul Morrow for the above photograph and for the million dollar bills.

We look forward to serving all our friends and clients to the best of our abilities in 2010. We wish you all an inspiring, exciting and wonderful 2010.

Happy New Year!

Terrance Rey

3. ARTICLE: Shared Private Jet Charters To St. Maarten


AirStMaarten now offering shared private jet charters from mainland USA to St. Maarten with seamless connections to St. Barths.

St. Maarten - Terrance Rey, founder of Caribbean’s first and only virtual airline called AirStMaarten, now offering shared private jet service from mainland USA to St. Maarten with connecting charters to St. Barths. AirStMaarten will organize shared jet charters in cooperation with private jet charter operators throughout the USA and the Caribbean.

Shared Private Jet Charters to St. Maarten with AirStMaarten

“We will be utilizing private jet aircrafts such as Westwinds, Citations and Hawkers to cater to non-executive travelers who want to travel in style with private jet service at an affordable price.” explains Rey.

At present AirStMaarten offers shared private charters from St. Maarten, Anguilla, Antigua and San Juan, Puerto Rico, to St. Barths. “Many of our clients arrive on commercial airlines, but the connection times are not ideal.” says Rey. “So we are looking to provide seamless connections with our new inbound shared private jet service.”

“For rates starting at $1500, affluent St. Barths travellers will be able to fly to St. Maarten at a premium price compared to the average Economy Class ticket price of $500, yet still competitive in comparison to a First Class fare of about $1800 to $2500.” continues Rey.

Terrance Rey first started AirStMaarten in 2003 offering transatlantic flights from The Netherlands to St. Maarten, Curacao and Aruba with the now defunct Air Holland. After the demise of this Dutch charter operator, AirStMaarten focused it’s attention on the Dutch Caribbean regional market by offering flights with commercial carriers such as Dutch Antilles Express (now known as DAE), Inselair, Tiara Air, Winair, Air Caraibes, St. Barth Commuter and TransAnguilla, before ultimately finding its niche market in ‘Shared Charters’ to St. Barths.

“The idea was simple.” explains Rey. “Book private charters from St. Maarten, Anguilla, Antigua and San Juan to St. Barths and sell the seats individually at a higher price than the commercial carriers, such as Winair, Air Caraibes, Tradewind Aviation, Carib Aviation and St. Barth Commuter, and include VIP Services with Meet & Greet, Immigration Clearance, Escort, Luggage Pick Up and Transfers.”

“The only requirement for us to be able to schedule and execute a shared charter is that we have to have a minimum of 4 passengers on a flight.” Rey continues.

“Our new shared private jet charter service from mainland USA will be following the same concept. We will charter the whole aircraft to operate on our behalf and AirStMaarten will sell the seats individually. In certain cases, we will not even require a minimum amount of passengers before scheduling and executing a charter.” Terrance Rey concludes. “A new era in Caribbean private jet charter service has been launched to provide seamless connections via San Juan, Anguilla, St. Maarten and St. Kitts to St. Barths between inbound jet flights with the shared private charters we provide between these islands.”

“Furthermore,” Rey continues. “for those passengers arriving in St. Maarten and staying on the island we will have a VIP Meet & Greet Desk at the Princess Juliana International Airport, also known as the PJIA or PJIAE airport, where passengers can receive a Welcome Package, receive gift certificates to use while on the island, arrange VIP Shuttle Transfers to the hotels, villa's and condominium resorts, arrange tours, book island activities or excursion flights to the surrounding islands on commercial airline, private charters or even take a helicopter tour of the island.”

“We will man the desk with agents who can assist passengers with checking in, Business Class reservations, airline First Class tickets, lost luggage, wheelchair service, luggage carts, valet parking and escorting unaccompanied minors.” tells Rey. “It will be a great relief to our clients to know that on the ground in St. Maarten we can also be of assistance. In St. Barths it is no different as we work with Premium IV to provide concierge services to our clients over there.”
