Montserrat has had various modes of access since it lost Bramble’s Airport to a pyroclastic flow in 1997.  Helicopter and ferry were in daily use right up to 2005 when the new Airport at Geralds was opened. The most common route for travelers outside of the region is to fly to the nearest international airport situated on our neighbouring island, Antigua, then take a pleasant 20 minute flight by an ‘island hopper’ plane directly to Montserrat.
