Robert L. Bradshaw Airport (SKB/TKPK) is the only airport on the island of St. Kitts and is located north of Basseterre’s downtown. The airport is mainly served by regional carriers, such as LIAT, Winair and Seaborne. American and Delta operate daily scheduled flights from/to the US mainland. British Airways sends a 772 from LGW (via ANU) twice a week, which is the only connection from/to Europe. A handful of cargo carriers can be seen here as well, e. g. Fedex Feeder (Cessna Caravan) and Amerijet (762F or 763F). Due to the predominant wind direction runway 07 is being used for takeoffs and landings most of the times.
