How to get to Barbados

There are a number of international airlines that provide scheduled and charter flight service to Barbados. Planes land at award-winning Grantley Adams International Airport in Bridgetown, the capital city of Barbados (Airport code: BGI). The airport is modern and offers facilities including free WiFi service, an information desk, a bank, a post office and a pharmacy. Tip: Ask for a seat on the left side of the plane to enjoy the views of the west coast upon landing

Barbados is just 3.5 hours from Miami, 4 hours from Charlotte and 4 hours, 20 minutes from New York by plane. Airlines offering direct flights to Barbados from the United States are American Airlines from Miami (MIA), Delta from Atlanta (ATL), USAir from Charlotte (CLT), JetBlue from New York (JFK), and US Air from Philadelphia (PHL). From Canada, fly Air Canada or WestJet, and from Europe take British Airways or Virgin Atlantic. Passports are required, and visas are necessary for some countries.

We highly recommended considering our VIP services to arrange a Fast track through customs to expedite your arrival. Due to the international flights arriving at roughly the same time period and creating an bottleneck, the customs line can be long at times. To avoid a long wait upon arriving, we strongly suggest consideration of the Fast Track opportunity and privileges that can be arranged through Isle Blue concierge services.

For your arrival, guests will have the choice of arranging an airport pickup to take you straight to the villa or picking up a rental car at the airport.

The airport pickup by professional driver option is highly recommended to ensure the best welcome experience. The driver will handle your bags and notify the villa of your impending arrival to ensure a proper Bajan welcome. Our concierge service will arrange for your rental car to be delivered to the villa for free. The service will ensure that you arrive and enjoy your villa quickly while alleviating the stress of orientating yourself to driving on the left hand side, navigating the roads and the need to fill up the rental car after a long flight.
