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.
From 2017, direct flights between British Virgin Islands and Miami will commence.
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. The new non-stop service to Miami will make use of the British Aerospace Avro RJ 100. In October 2016, BVI Airways received its maiden airlines type ARJ-100 aircraft naming BVI Airways with two more to be delivered. Once regulation plans are completed this aircraft will make the first non-stop international flight from the Island.
In July 2017, BVI Airways announced it will begin scheduled passenger flights later this month. The Caribbean-based carrier said in a statement a 2x weekly return service between Beef Island, British Virgin Islands, and Miami Int'l would commence on July 22 using ARJ-100 equipment.
Since completing and securing its Air Operator's Certificate in January, BVI Airways has run occasional charter flights as well as an ACMI contract for Sunrise Airways. BVI Airways is scheduled to launch first-ever nonstop service between Tortola, British Virgin Islands and MIA on July 22, with two weekly roundtrip flights on Saturdays and Sundays.
BVI Airways will use BAe Avro 146 RJ100 aircraft to serve the new route, which connects Miami to the British Virgin Islands' capital and largest island. Tortola will also be MIA's 40th Caribbean destination with nonstop service.
The addition of BVI Airways continues MIA's strong year of air service growth. Seven other international passenger airlines have already either commenced or scheduled service launches in 2017: Mexican low-cost carrier Volaris began four weekly flights to Guadalajara and daily service to Mexico City on February 1; Canadian airline First Air began charter passenger flights on February 4 from Ontario; low-cost transatlantic airline WOW air launched thrice-weekly service to Reykjavik, Iceland on April 5; Avianca Brazil began daily service to Sao Paulo on June 24; Aer Lingus will launch three weekly flights to Dublin, Ireland on September 1; SAS will begin weekly service to Stockholm, Sweden on October 29; and EL AL Israel Airlines will begin three weekly flights from Tel Aviv on November 1.

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.”
