Tortola, British Virgin Islands, 5 Jan 2021 – The British Virgin Islands (BVI) officially reopened its borders to international travelers on 1 December , 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 & Film Commission (BVITB&FC) is excited to announce a partnership with evoJets, one of the most trusted names in private jet travel. While many commercial airlines do not have direct 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 to the BVI. To redeem credit, travelers may apply the code BVITOURISM in the comments section of the private jet charter booking form. A number of recommended land and sea offerings for guests to choose from will be outlined to complete the perfect socially distanced vacation, whether travelers prefer to spend their days relaxing on the beach or chartering a yacht to island-hop and experience all the BVI has to offer.
Additionally, in their commitment to create a greener earth and promote a more sustainable BVI, evoJets has committed to The BVITB&FC’s Seeds of Love Programme. For each trip booked to the BVI, evoJets will contribute an additional $1,500 to Seeds of Love. This contribution includes the planting of approximately 27 White Cedar trees per donation. The White Cedar tree is the territorial tree of the BVI.
Clive McCoy, Director of Tourism, is excited by evoJets’ generous partnership component to donate to the community through this initiative. “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.”
The Seeds of Love programme was launched in 2017 to replant trees lost in the as a result of Hurricanes Irma and Maria, which impacted the Territory that year. Through this programme, the BVITB&FC has conducted several plantings and cleanup campaigns throughout the Territory.
“The British Virgin Islands is an oasis of natural beauty which bring joy to all who visit. We are excited to support the comeback of tourism to the islands and contribute to the rebuilding of their stunning ecosystems,” says Rich Palese, managing partner at evoJets.
