interCaribbean Airways announced a major increase in air service to commence double daily services effective from Dec. 19th and triple daily four times a week.
The new AM and PM services give the opportunity for business and leisure travelers in the British Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico to visit for a day, and be home in time for dinner. These flights operated by EMB 120 aircraft are the “fastest turbo prop aircraft in its class making it the quickest connection.”
“Since we first began service into the San Juan to Tortola we have seen a steady increase in the demand for our flights,” said Trevor Sadler, interCaribbean CEO.
“We’re pleased to respond to this demand with significant increase in flights between two favorite islands and in addition to new daily flights from Tortola to Antigua,” Sadler said.
Meanwhile British Virgin Islands Director of Tourism Sharon Flax-Brutus said “the BVI Tourist Board is pleased that interCaribbean Airways is demonstrating its commitment to bring convenient air transportation to the region and applauds the airline’s recent decision to increase service to the BVI.”
The increase in service between the BVI and Antigua and the BVI and San Juan is welcome news as it will “help address the challenge of airlift and accessibility to the destination,” she said.
interCaribbean Airways is based in the Turks & Caicos Islands, and was founded 25 years ago.
