Spirit Air out of Lauderdale is the cheapest!

Re: flying to USVI

I have heard good things about Spirit as well. There is a ferry from USVI to BVI.

What is cheapest from Baltimore/DC to USVI?

I flew from Orlando to STT back in August...I only paid $99 on AA but it's probably expensive right now....I can't afford to go there this time of year haha.

Re: Flying to USVI

We have always flown Delta from Atlanta direct to STT and had plenty of time to catch the ferry from Charlotte Amalie. Delta is pretty expensive though (we use miles) ... I want to say around $700 per ticket ... but may depend on the season.

Oh ... we did have a couple that priced it out last year and opted for flying direct to Tortola via Puerto Rico and then puddle jumped from PR ... made it easy to pick them up.
