Caribbean Airfare Sale
If you’ve been considering a yacht charter, but high airfares have been holding you back, now may be the time to take another look. American Airlines has launched a spring sale on flights to the Caribbean. As airline sales often are, the exact details are a bit vague, but it appears that tickets must be booked by March 31st for departure by May 30th.
Despite the seemingly nebulous details, a check of midweek airfares this spring yields some prices that are simply too good to pass up:
Non-stop New York to St. Thomas – $287
Non-stop Miami to St. Thomas – $257
With Tortola and the wonders of the British Virgin Islands cruising ground a 40 minute ferry ride away, flying into St. Thomas is a completely viable option. When planning your flights, remember to factor in that the ferry stops running around 5pm, so it’s best to land by 3:30 or so.
Remember to reserve soon, airfares like this won’t last long!
