There was no sign of an economic fall out on the island of Anguilla this holiday season with some 215 private jet flights into the island.

The island’s Wallblake Airport came alive during the Christmas and New Year holiday season with a record-breaking number of executive jets roaring in and out of Anguilla, the Anguilla Tourist Board said Monday.

The activity began on December 19, 2008 and continued through January 5, 2009, with celebrity and VIP passengers staying at the signature luxury resorts and renowned super villas that dot the island.

The record number of private jets caused “near traffic jams on the tiny tarmac” and kept staff working nearly round the clock, added the island’s tourist board. It also said the private jets included Gulfstreams 4s and 5s, Falcon 900s, Citations, Lear Jets, Challengers, Hawkers, Astras, Embraer 135s, Global Expresses and Galaxies.
