Seaborne Airlines recently added new flights between San Juan and Tortola.  Flying Seaborne is a great option, especially if you’re flying with a large party.  Six or more and you might have the entire plane to yourselves.  Same for Cape Air.

In a recent interview the head of JetBlue talks about the Caribbean market and how their new hub in San Juan is helping service our region.

And for those in the United States, Southwest Airlines will be servicing the Caribbean as of April 14th with direct flights to San Juan from Orlando and Tampa.

Flying to St. Thomas in the nearby USVI is another great option for our guests, since the ferry dock on Tortola’s West End is just a short drive from the resort (as in, less than 5 minutes)!

And if you’re reading to book your next trip, here’s a quick guide to the airport codes:

  • EIS – This is the airport code for the Beef Island Airport that services our island, Tortola.  Connecting through San Juan, Puerto Rico is the most common way to get to Tortola’s airport.
  • SJU – There are a wide variety of direct flights to Puerto Rico’s San Juan airport.
  • ANU – Flights via Antigua are popular with travelers from the UK (from London, Gatwick) and Canada.  Just jump on a connecting flight to Tortola on LIAT or other private charter flights.
  • STT – This is the airport code for St. Thomas in the USVI.  Check for direct flights from New York, Atlanta and a variety of other US cities.  You will need to take a taxi to the ferry dock to catch a boat to Tortola.  Here is the BVI Tourism’s ferry schedule.
