Arriving to the BVI by Air
Note: there are no direct flights 365 days of the year from the USA, Canada, Europe, or South America to the British Virgin Islands’ main airport (Tortola’s Terrence B. Lettsome Airport, a.k.a. EIS). However, several excellent connecting airports surround the islands. All flights to the BVI connect through another Caribbean island airport (such as Puerto Rico, St. Thomas, Antigua, or St. Maarten). Your travel agent or international airline will be able to assist with booking flights.
American Airlines is now offering a seasonal direct flight option from Miami to the BVI. To learn more visit their website here.
If you plan to continue on to Virgin Gorda (VIJ), Anegada, Peter Island, or Jost van Dyke, we recommend that you check with your hotel, resort, or villa to make sure that charter flights or ferry service will be available (especially if arriving after 4pm). Private boat charters can also be arranged via St. Thomas, Road Town or Beef Island. Otherwise, plan to spend a night or two in Tortola before exploring the rest of the archipelago.
The BVI’s major airports are:
