On behalf of the Board of Directors, Management and Staff of the Anguilla Air and Sea Ports Authority (AASPA) I would like to offer you the warmest greetings from the commercial ports of the beautiful island of Anguilla; where we pride ourselves to be Tranquility Wrapped in Blue.

AASPA prides itself in being primarily security and safety oriented and conscious, whilst creating a balance of developing competent professional staff, facilitating the success and growth of business at the ports, and establishing opportunities for economic growth and development in Anguilla.

It is an exciting time for the expansion and growth of the port sector; including cargo port development primarily due to the expansion of the Panama Canal, airport expansion to facilitate access and occupancy targets in the tourism sector, ferry port development to better facilitate passenger movements and commercial activity, and cruise and yachting development to be a reflection of the premium tourism product that has been developed in Anguilla.

AASPA would like the users of the ports in particular to have to best possible experience, which we continuously aim to achieve by collaborating with the various stakeholders and agencies at the ports. One of the priorities of AASPA is to substantially contribute to the diversification and development of the tourism and economic development of Anguilla.

AASPA strives to ensure that the principles of good governance are being exercised, and improve the professional work culture for all operations and business activities at the commercial ports of Anguilla.

Welcome to Anguilla and AASPA.

The Legislation (Act) may be cited as the Anguilla Air and Sea Ports Authority Act (2010), revised statutes of Anguilla, Chapter A57. The AASPA is established with the exclusive right to manage the ports of Anguilla. Namely: The Clayton J. Lloyd International Airport, Blowing Point Port, Road Bay Port, the Marine Base in Sandy Ground, and Corito Port. The Anguilla Air and Sea Ports Authority has an Advisory Board of Directors (the Board) of six all of whom are appointed by the Governor in Council.

The AASPA continues to plan strategically to stay competitive regionally and to keep pace with and meet the changing needs of port users and the Anguillian community. To this end, the AASPA must keep close to industry – passenger vessels, airlines, shipping and tourism – to anticipate and assess opportunities, either for investment in facilities or further diversification.

To create an efficient, profitable and self-sustaining organisation staffed by highly trained and motivated personnel, providing quality service to our clients, at world class port facilities and their environs, where diverse lucrative (economic) opportunities are available for private and public sector entities.

The Anguilla Air and Sea Ports Authority exists to provide for co-ordinated and integrated systems of airports, sea ports and port services working closely with industry and port users to meet their changing needs by investing in port infrastructure and providing services in an efficient manner for the benefit of its users.
