interCaribbean Airways is introducing a new way to Tortola every Wednesday and Saturday, Tortola from Providenciales.
Beginning May 3, these new same plane flights will fly to Tortola via Santo Domingo, with no deplaning required. This new service is designed especially for Caribbean Passport holders (without a USA Visa) to be able to visit BVI, bypassing San Juan or St. Thomas as the USA points of entry.
The service with a 30 seater Embraer 120 aircraft commences on May 3, 2017, and adds to interCaribbean’ current nonstop flights from Beef Island to both San Juan and Antigua giving increased connectivity for Tortola to Santo Domingo.
Trevor Sadler, interCaribbean Chief Executive Officer said:“Tortola is a great destination covering a wide range of tourist possibilities, especially for sailing, with quite possibly the largest sailing fleet
“Tortola is a great destination covering a wide range of tourist possibilities, especially for sailing, with quite possibly the largest sailing fleet worldwide. The BVI offers unique Islands, fabulous boutique resorts, and exclusive villas. We are happy to be adding another destination to Tortola and removing the obstacles of a Turks & Caicos Passport Holder in visiting the BVI. Also for the BVI citizens, the ability to now easily visit friends and family in the Turks & Caicos Islands has become so much easier.
