Road Town Air Travel

Fly the whole way to Road Town or split your travels between air travel and taking a ferry

Although there are numerous ways to get to Road Town, most tourists find that booking a flight aboard their favorite airline is the best way for them to travel to this popular vacation destination.

Flying directly to Road Town is not an option, and in fact, tourists flying into the British Virgin Islands will have to make at least one connecting flight before arriving at their final destination. The Luis Muñoz Marín International Airport on Puerto Rico, Cyril E King Airport on St. Thomas, USVI, or Princess Juliana International Airport in Sint Maarten serve as hubs for international flights arriving in the Caribbean. These three airports are large enough to accommodate the jumbo jets that typically carry passengers from abroad. The typical flight path for tourists from the United States and Canada brings them to either Puerto Rico or St. Thomas before they connect with the British Virgin Islands, while those traveling from Europe, Asia, or South America fly to Puerto Rico or Sint Maarten first.

Flying to Road Town from the Caribbean

After their initial flight to Puerto Rico, Sint Maarten, or St. Thomas, tourists can take a plane that carries less than 100 people at a time to the airport local to Road Town, the Terrence B. Lettsome International Airport on Beef Island. Beef Island connects to Tortola via the Queen Elizabeth Bridge, so tourists can fly into Beef Island and read their final destination of Road Town by taking a cab. This will cost between $12 and $27(USD) depending upon the number of passengers that taxi is carrying.

See below for airline service from other Caribbean airports. If you can't get a flight directly from your local airport, connecting through another airport in the Caribbean could be a fine option.
