While not known for ever being the easiest destination to fly to, The British Virgin Islands will be receiving direct flights from Miami in the USA by mid-year 2023.
BVI Minister Rymer said the American Airlines flights will begin from June 2023 and hailed the development as a breakthrough for the territory. The flights will run through the summer and then again starting in November 2023.
The minster said the airline will utilise the Embraer E-175 which can operate with the Terrance B Lettsome’s current airport length.
Rymer said the airline’s decision to resume flights with the territory demonstrates their overwhelming confidence in the BVI and the territory’s tourism product.
“We are very happy to welcome back American Airlines to the British Virgin Islands. This venture to have direct flights between Miami and the British Virgin Islands will make it significantly easier, faster and more affordable for persons from around the world to come to the British Virgin Islands, which is one of the must-visit tourist destinations in the world,” Rymer stated. “Our residents will also benefit from convenient connections for business and leisure travel to dozens of destinations across American’s route network.”
In the meantime, Vice-president of American Airlines – Miami, Juan Carlos Liscano said this year’s demand remained strong for Miami travel and that the airline was looking forward to further growth in 2023 “with a new and unique destination in the Caribbean that our customers love – the British Virgin Islands.”
American is Miami’s home carrier and the largest airline at Miami International Airport (MIA), offering customers more than 140 destinations in the Caribbean.
Since 2021, American has strengthened its presence in the region, with new flights from MIA to Dominica (DOM), Anguilla (AXA) and Samana (AZS). Recently, the airline began operating more service to Cuba, with more flights to Havana (HAV) and resumed flights to Santa Clara (SNU), Varadero (VRA), Holguín (HOG), Camagüey (CMW) and Santiago (SCU).
