The British Virgin Islands’ new nonstop route from Miami seems to be doing rather well. The first flights between Miami and Tortola in the modern era only kicked off a few weeks ago, and American Airlines has already announced plans to expand them.
This winter, American Airlines will be adding a second daily nonstop flight between Miami and Tortola’s Beef Island Airport, spurred by strong demand for the nascent flight.
It’s a significant boost for the British Virgin Islands as it looks to winter 2023 recover its tourism number from prior to the pandemic.
The additional daily flight is part of what American Airlines is calling its largest-ever winter schedule to the Caribbean.
