Good news if you’re thinking of heading to the British Virgin Islands for a cruise or charter vacation. The Terrance B. Lettsome International Airport on Tortola has just reopened for commercial flights.
The airport, a welcome sight on Beef Island for generations of travelers to the BVI, had been closed after Hurricanes Irma and Maria caused “severe damage,” according to Denniston Fraser, the head of the BVI Airports Authority. It had been closed to commercial flights but it was open to some humanitarian, relief and evacuation flights.
Now it is open to commercial flights on Cape Air, which already operated its first flight out of the airport to San Juan, and LIAT, which operates flights from the Eastern Caribbean. Seaborne also is relaunching flights.
The airport will be open from 7:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily. The Airports Authority advises travelers to arrive at the airport three hours before departure time.
