Private Charter Flights from SAN JUAN, ST. THOMAS, ANTIGUA & ST. MARTIN direct to VIRGIN GORDA:
Chartering with Island Birds avoids lay-overs in busy Caribbean airports, lost luggage and delays. The charter pilot meets you on the tarmac after ground handling staff direct you through the airport and assist you with your bags, immigration clearance, etc., to make the transfer to your private plane as easy as possible. The whole process happens seamlessly; guests are usually on the charter plane in less than half an hour from the time they land in the 4 major Caribbean hubs and collect their bags. Planes are stocked with chilled beer, Coke/Pepsi and spring water for the journey to Virgin Gorda.
