Hummingbird Air is introducing direct flights to the BVI every Monday and Friday starting June 1, 2015. The timing of this service is designed to coincide with the busy summer travel season.
Hummingbird Air expects to serve both tourists and Dominican nationals with its new connections. Company President, Sam Raphael noted that the request for this initiative came from the BVI German representative who wanted to introduce a multi island vacation package that combined Dominica and the BVI. European tourists, who tend to vacation for longer periods have started a trend of combining different islands to create interesting vacation experiences. Raphael believes that easy connections to other islands will help position Dominica as a key destination in the fast emerging multi island vacation market. Dominica is a desired destination because it offers a unique ecotourism experience. Mr. Raphael also indicated that Dominica residents and the large Dominican community in the BVI have been asking for a direct, convenient way to travel and ship goods and fresh Dominican produce between these points. Hummingbird Air transports passengers and cargo on all their flights. The frequency of flights to the BVI is expected to increase and plans are underway to introduce flights to other Caribbean Islands very soon.
