Flights to British Virgin Islands

The British Virgin Islands are a favourite Caribbean destination for travellers who like to do things their own way. If you love sailing, you’re in luck. Made up of over 60 islands, a good chunk of which are uninhabited, the BVIs are just made for exploring by boat. Thankfully there are plenty of places where you can charter one for the day.

Each of the main islands has its own attractions. Virgin Gorda with its beautiful scenery is a favourite hangout for billionaires and celebs, bustling Tortola is famous for its full moon parties and lively atmosphere, while the less inhabited islands of Jost Van Dyke and Anegada offer the perfect retreats where you can lay back, relax, and enjoy that Caribbean sunshine.

There are four airports in the British Virgin Islands, although only two benefit from scheduled commercial flights. If you’re planning on visiting the British Virgin Islands, you should look for flights to the following destinations.

Terrance B. Lettsome International Airport (EIS)

This is the main airport serving the British Virgin Islands and acts as a gateway to the territory. The airport is connected to the largest island, Tortola, by the Queen Elizabeth II bridge. From Tortola you can find a range of ferries to take you to the other islands if you wish. If you decide to stick around you’ll find plenty to entertain yourself. The island has a beautiful National Park, complete with a rainforest and the breathtaking Mount Sage. There’s a great range of spectacular beaches, where you can try your hand at surfing or just kick back on the white sand.

Virgin Gorda Airport (VIJ)

The island of Virgin Gorda has been popular with the jet set since the 1960s, but thankfully commercialisation hasn’t taken over and it still has a lovely unspoiled feel. There’s a salt lake dotted with flamingos, a museum showcasing relics that have washed up from shipwrecks, and plenty of opportunities to get out and do a bit of deep sea fishing. It’s also a great destination for a bit of snorkelling and scuba diving. The airport is small and only receives flights from a very small number of airlines, so it’s unlikely that your plane will land here.
