About BVI Airways

BVI Airways, also known as British Virgin Islands, is an airline of British Virgin Islands.

The airline's headquarters are based at Terrance B. Lettsome International Airport which serves as the island of Tortola's main airport. In January 2016, the Government of British Virgin Islands announced that it would be investing US$7 million into the airline. 

BVI Airways was founded in 2009 and began operations in May 2010 by serving Beef Island to St Maarten route 3 x Weekly. In September 2010, the airline commenced services to Dominica, on behalf of Winair

In 2014, BVI Airways suspended operations between islands not long after a change in ownership. This was in order to focus on a non-stop schedule directly to the US. 

BVI Airways' initial fleet consisted of two 19-seater British Aerospace Jetstream Super 31 turboprops. In October 2016, BVI Airways received its maiden airlines type ARJ-100 aircraft naming BVI Airways with two more to be delivered. This aircraft made the first non-stop international flight from the Island.

In July 2017, BVI Airways flew its first scheduled passenger flights. The Caribbean-based carrier launched a return service between Beef Island, British Virgin Islands, and Miami Int'l which flew its inaugural flight on 22nd July 2017 using ARJ-100 equipment.

Shortly after, BVI Airways launched its first-ever nonstop service between Tortola, British Virgin Islands and MIA, with two weekly roundtrip flights on Saturdays and Sundays. BVI Airways used aBAe Avro 146 RJ100 aircraft to serve the new route, which connects Miami to the British Virgin Islands' capital and largest island. Tortola became MIA's 40th Caribbean destination with nonstop service.

Airline seeking investors to fulfil promise to BVI - BVI Airways is negotiating with potential investors to get its planes off the ground

More than a week after BVI Airways confirmed that it does not have enough money to commence the already delayed direct service between the British Virgin Islands (BVI) and Miami in the United States.

The BVI government had pumped $7 million into the venture.

Up to this morning, there was no indication as to where the airline would have got the additional funds needed to start flying.

“The negotiations [between BVI Airways and potential investors] are working towards the expectation of the service which we (BVI government and BVI Airways) agreed to in the initial agreement,” Premier Smith revealed.

He, in response to questions posed by Leader of Opposition Andrew Fahie, stated that his government does not have any plan to provide BVI Airways with more of taxpayers’ money.

Premier Smith was elusive when Fahie asked a number of other questions, including whether the government plans to recoup its $7 million, considering that BVI Airways is yet to commence service.

Premier Smith claimed that it would be prejudicial to the current negotiations if he answered the opposition leader’s questions.

“I have to be very careful of how I respond to questions… BVI Airways is currently engaged with various entities in relation to investment of the project, and therefore it’s prejudicial to further discuss this arrangement at this time,” the premier said.

Fahie then asked: “If all these questions with BVI Airways were prejudicial before the contract, during the contract, and now; at least could you tell us what all the $7 million of the taxpayers money was spent for?”

Dr Smith, however, maintained his elusive posture.

“I can’t give you that [breakdown of the spending] accurately at this point in time. We’ll have to provide that on paper. However, as I said, there are negotiations right now going on with BVI Airways and other entities. Therefore, speaking about other things such as what you asked about recouping the $7million, is not pertinent at this time.”
