Flying into the Beef Island airport generally requires a stop in Puerto Rico. Large airlines, and also small ones like Cape Air and Liat, fly into Beef Island.

Most major airlines, as well as Cape Air, fly into the St. Thomas airport (STT). Any taxi driver can then take you to the next ferry leaving for Tortola, BVI.
