Air services to Montserrat are currently provided by two airlines: Fly Montserrat and BMN(SVG) Air. Both airlines operate BN2 Islander aircraft on scheduled services between Antigua and Montserrat. The two airlines have received a modest monthly seat guarantee support, since mid-2016. The Government of Montserrat will be seeking bids from suitably qualified airlines to provide scheduled services between Montserrat and Antigua, and neighbouring routes using Twin Otter aircraft performance capability. This type of aircraft is specified as being permitted to operate to John A. Osborne Airport under the approval process in place with the airport’s regulator, Air Safety Support International (ASSI).
