American Airlines (AA) is launching more Caribbean flying from its Miami hub with new service to Terrance B. Lettsome International Airport (EIS) in the British Virgin Islands (BVI).
The new seasonal flight, operated daily by Envoy with an Embraer E175 aircraft, will start on June 1, 2023, and will run through the summer, restarting again in November.
“We are proud to operate as the leading airline in South Florida, offering our customers an unrivaled network in the Caribbean and Latin America with service from the Miami hub to more than 70 destinations in the region,” said Juan Carlos Liscano, American Airlines Vice President – Miami. “This year demand has remained strong for Miami travel, and we’re looking forward to further growth in 2023 with a new and unique destination in the Caribbean that our customers love – the British Virgin Islands.”
“We are very happy to welcome back American Airlines to the British Virgin Islands. This venture to have direct flights between Miami and the British Virgin Islands will make it significantly easier, faster and more affordable for persons from around the world to come to the British Virgin Islands, which is one of the must-visit tourist destinations in the world,” said BVI Minister of Communications and Works, Kye Rymer. “Our residents will also benefit from convenient connections for business and leisure travel to dozens of destinations across American’s route network.”
AA last served the BVI in March 2013 via the former San Juan hub.
