Leeward Flight Services at Bradshaw International features the Yu Lounge, which the company describes as a luxury lounge where passengers refresh themselves while a concierge handles the formalities of collecting luggage and arranging transportation.

Leeward Flight Service has opened a private jet terminal at Robert L. Bradshaw International Airport in Basseterre, St. Kitts. The new facility, which says it specializes in quick turns, offers onsite customs, immigration and health clearance, as well as landing permit and airport slot assistance. The 10,270-sq-ft terminal features 7,612 sq ft of lounge space, including the upscale “Yu Lounge,” similar to parent company General Aviation Mauritius’ facility at Sir Seewoosagur Ramgoolam International Airport in Mauritius, which offers separate arrival and departure waiting areas, refreshments, dedicated meeting rooms and secretarial services, complimentary Wi-Fi, shower facilities, and concierge and duty-free pre-ordering services.
