By: Caribbean Journal Staff - November 21, 2016

Turks and Caicos-based InterCaribbean Airways is significantly expanding its service to Tortola.

The carrier will be launching two daily flights between San Juan and Tortola’s Beef Island International Airport beginning Dec. 19.

Four days per week, the carrier will operate triple flight service, for a total of 18 flights each week.

“Since we first began service into the San Juan [market] to Tortola we have seen a steady increase in the demand for our flights,” said Trevor Sadler, chief executive officer of InterCaribbean. “We are pleased to respond to this demand with significant increase in flights between two favorite islands and in addition to new daily flights from Tortola to Antigua.”

InterCaribbean is operating the service on EMB 120 aircraft, the fastest turbo prop aircraft in its class.

“The BVI Tourist Board is pleased that interCaribbean Airways is demonstrating its commitment to bring convenient air transportation to the region and applauds the airline’s recent decision to increase service to the BVI,” said Sharon Flax-Brutus, director of tourism for the British Virgin Islands. “The increase in service between the BVI and Antigua and the BVI and San Juan is welcome news as it will help address the challenge of airlift and accessibility to the destination.”
