No Direct Flights from Toronto to St Maarten?

Hi there I am trying to plan a 5 day vacation for around the end of Oct/ beginning of November. For some reason I can't seem to find direct flights from Toronto? I find this a bit odd as we did this a few years ago. I tried changing the dates but it doens't seem to help. I am now considering changing my destination, as I really don't want to take 10 hours to get to St. Maarten for 5 days. We went to Barbados last year and liked it as well but I didn't really find any little shops to spend a day shopping in. So basically we loved St. Maarten/Barbados and are looking for a destination similiar, nice beaches. great food, NOt all inclusive types at all, would love to rent a car explore island? any thoughts

West Jet does Sunday to Sunday and in high season does Sunday's and Tuesdays. Oct is low season so I think Sunday to Sunday will apply only. You can look into flying US Airways out of Toronto or Buffalo. They have a stop over in Charlotte then to SXM. Usually 7.5 hr trip and cheaper as well.

If you could extend that to a week, Sunflight has Thursday-Thursday non-stop.

Try Delta out of Buffalo...had a 6am flight via Atlanta and you got into St.Martins at 2:30pm......AC did direct flights this past winter...the time period might be low season and or it might be too early for airlines to decide when there high season will commence.

WestJet flies Sun Tues Thurs to SXM. Thurs may not be in low season. Call them directly it will not cost you any more than booking online. Have used them 8 years in a row and always called and spoke to a real human.
