New Air Service Launched in BVI

On October 8, it was announced by USVI-based carrier Seaborne Airlines and the British Virgin Islands Tourist Board in collaboration with the BVI Airport Authority about the start of daily round-trip flights between San Juan’s international airport in Puerto Rico and Terrence B. Lettsome International Airport, serving the British Virgin Islands. Flights are to be commenced in two months, on December 8, 2012. It was also stated that by April 2013 Seaborne plans to operate 49 weekly round-trip flights in the BVI.

On December 8, the carrier based in St. Croix, US Virgin Islands, is going to start new service from San Juan to Virgin Gorda. Seaborne will also introduce special promotional fares for BVI residents travelling to San Juan. BVI travellers will have access to Seaborne’s premium lounge at San Juan's Luis Munoz Marin International Airport.

By words of Gary Foss, the president of Seaborne Airlines, this first scheduled service to the British Virgin Islands from their connecting complex in Puerto Rico will allow customers from United States and Canada easy connection to the BVI territory.
