The best part? The delivery fee is only $2.75.

It may seem like living on a remote tropical island would be paradise. After all, what’s better than sand, sun, and plenty of rum? But sadly, it’s really difficult to get pizza delivered to small islands. In fact, on some isolated Caribbean islands, it was impossible… until now, that is.

Domino’s is teaming up with Winair to bring pizza delivery to small Caribbean islands like Saba and St. Eustatius via airplane.

The idea started as an April Fool’s joke, but it became so popular that a Domino’s in the St. Maarten’s airport decided to make flyby pizza delivery a reality. The program was launched earlier this month, and has been wildly successful, according to Domino’s, with the pizzeria getting at least several requests every day, according to Mashable. Surprisingly, the delivery surcharge is only $2.75. Flight times range from 15 to 20 minutes, so your pizza is pretty much guaranteed to arrive fresh and hot.

The only downside we can see is that customers will still have to drive to the airport to pick up their pie. But that’s a sacrifice we’d be willing to make for pizza.
