The British Virgin Islands (BVI) officially reopened its borders to international travelers on December 1, exclusive to arrivals at Terrance B. Lettsome International Airport on Beef Island. With safety and socially distanced travel top of mind, the BVI Tourist Board and Film Commission (BVITB&FC) has announced a partnership with private jet company evoJets. While no commercial airlines have nonstop flights to Terrance B. Lettsome International Airport, flying private is the easiest and most convenient way to get to the destination.
In an effort to make private jet travel more readily accessible, the BVITB&FC has established a new partnership with evoJets that offers $1,500 towards catering, ground or flight cost on any portion of a trip booked from any evoJets gateway in the U.S. and Canada to the BVI. A number of recommended private villa and boat charter offerings for guests to choose from will be outlined to complete the socially distanced vacation, whether travelers prefer to spend their days relaxing on the beach or chartering a yacht to island-hopping and experiencing all the BVI has to offer.
Additionally, in its commitment to create a greener earth and help promote a more sustainable BVI, evoJets has committed matching dollars to the BVITB&FC’s “Seeds of Love” program, which launched in 2017 to replant trees lost in the as a result of Hurricanes Irma and Maria. For each trip booked to the BVI, the private jet company will contribute an additional $1,500 to “Seeds of Love,” which will plant 27 indigenous white cedar trees with each generous donation.
Clive McCoy, director of tourism for the BVI, said in a statement: “This partnership is a demonstration of how important sustainable tourism is to our industry partners and us. We are truly thankful for their contribution to protecting the flora of the BVI.”
