Miami Getting First Direct Flights From U.S. Mainland To British Virgin Islands

American Airlines is launching nonstop flights from Miami International Airport to Terrance B. Lettsome International Airport in the British Virgin Islands.

The new Miami flights will become the first ever scheduled air service to the British Virgin Islands from the U.S. mainland – and no seat guarantees were required by the government.

The British Virgin Islands has a population of just 30,000.

Daily flights will begin on June 1, 2023 and will run through the summer, restarting again in November.

An Embraer E175 will fly the route.

The new service add to American Airline’s Latin America & Caribbean network, with a number of others also unserved from anywhere else in the U.S.

Since 2021, AA has added flights from Miami to Dominica, Anguilla and Samaná. Most recently, the airline began to operate more service to Cuba with additional flying to Havana and resumed service to Santa Clara, Varadero, Holguín, Camagüey and Santiago.

Metromover from the airport to downtown should be a no brainer

Not necessary for a Metromover. There is already the Metrorail and Tri-Rail (if they can finally get that right) to and from the airport and downtown.

There’s already FEC tracks within walking distance to Wynwood, but these people want Metromover extensions, ruining walkable streets with massive flyovers, just for free electric shortbus rides to their favorite overpriced craft breweries.

If you think MetroMOVER should be expanded to Miami Beach, let alone MIA when Metrorail already connects, you certainly have no brain.

Hilarious!

Amazing! Time to revamp MIA airport from “third-world” condition or build a brand new Miami airport.

Thank you, any upgrades to business class available? Now that the lounge is fixed, we may need to go all the way.

A renovation was completed a few years ago. If you think it aged in that time, what makes you believe something from Arquitectonica or Zyscovich will do any better? I mean, the former’s south terminal from 2007 already feels like a bus terminal.

Let’s hire the company that renovated Laguardia. They took a trash chute and turned it into the Taj Majal. We can take what we have and do the same thing here.

Taj Mahal? More like Disneyland. But, I guess the masses love the fact there is no direct line on subway or rail to the new LGA.

LGA is so close to ride share, drive and they have shuttle busses. I took a shuttle from the UWS once. At least we have a direct line to MIA and let’s fix up this dated non-exemplary excuse for an airport.

Laguardia is a dump. You can’t be serious.

Renovations should be completed before the world cup in 2026.

MIA is a robust airport I don’t know what you’re talking about. Maybe you’re not thrilled with the service you received at MIA but the fact it is the #2 international airport in the southeast only behind Atlanta. By far the biggest airport in Florida. So, no I don’t suppose you can do any better than that.
