Travel to the Villa
Air and Ferry Transportation
I have found that b)
is the least expensive method
of getting to the villa.
There are several major airports near
the British Virgin Islands, which act as hubs for onward
travel to both Tortola, BVI and Virgin Gorda, BVI.
San Juan (SJU) and St. Thomas (STT) are major
international airports for North American carriers
while St. Martin (SXM) and Antigua (ANU) are major
Caribbean destinations for many European carriers.
Many charter carriers and US carriers fly direct to St.
Thomas, USVI. WestJet, American/US Air, Jet Blue,
Southwest, Air Canada, Continental-United,
Lufthansa/Condor and many other regularly scheduled, charter
and discount North American airlines have direct flights
to SJU and SXM. Many European carriers also land at San
Juan with direct British Airlines service to Antigua from
Charter carriers such as Fly BVI, Virgin Gorda Air
Charters and Island Birds also make the flight to Virgin Gorda
or Tortola from San Juan, St. Thomas or St. Martin during
daylight hours (a requirement). For example Fly BVI
will fly from St. Martin into Virgin Gorda. See www.virgingordaaircharters.com
, www.fly-bvi.com, www.airamericacaribbean.com/
, www.bvi-airlines.com/, http://viairlink.com/
for direct links to their websites. Booking
twin engined planes operated by US government certified
charter companies is economical, if you have a group of five
or more people arriving at the same time into San Juan or St.
Martin. Virgin Gorda Air Charters' rates are very
competitive with Seaborne or Cape Air and you have the
added bonus of a plane waiting for you as you arrive in San
Juan (even if your aircraft is late).
