Since the 1980s, it will now be easier and quicker to reach the British Virgin Islands (BVI), thanks to American Airlines flights to Beef Island/Tortola.
The Honourable Kye M. Rymer, MHA. The Deputy Premier Minister of Communication & Works Minister has announced that the British Virgin Islands (BVI) will be receiving direct flights from Miami in the USA by mid-year 2023.
From June 1, American Airlines will start operating nonstop roundtrip flights, daily from Miami International Airport (MIA) to Terrance B. Lettsome International Airport (EIS), previously Beef Island Airport.
These American Airlines flights to the British Virgin Islands will set a development benchmark as a territory breakthrough.
To quote Clive McCoy, director of tourism, British Virgin Islands Tourist Board & Film Commission, “As the first nonstop flight from the U.S. in decades, this is a monumental opportunity to bring more North American travelers to the crystal-clear waters of our beloved island-destination.”
