BVI Airways receives operating approval from UK regulator

The British Virgin Islands is making moves towards improved air access following the receipt by BVI Airways of a revised Air Operator Certificate (AOC) from its United Kingdom based regulator, Air Safety Support International. The AOC has authorised BVI Airways to operate its Avro RJ100 jet aircraft from the Terrance B. Lettsome International Airport.

Premier and minister of finance Dr Orlando Smith congratulated BVI Airways, stating, “Congratulations to BVI Airways on making history for both the company, and the Virgin Islands’ guest experience.”

“The approval brings the territory one step closer to achieving direct air access to and from the United States. The partnership will allow direct air access between the Terrance B. Lettsome International Airport and Miami International Airport,” Smith noted.

The premier added, “The partnership between the government of the Virgin Islands and BVI Airways is an immediate response to the territory’s current air access challenges. The next step is the expansion of the T.B. Lettsome International Airport to accommodate regular flights to and from the eastern seaboard of the United States, and establishes direct connections to and from the international travel hubs in Central and South America.”

With the recent regulatory approval, BVI Airways will now seek authorisation from the US Department of Transportation to fly into the United States.
