The only direct scheduled flights to Bermuda are from the US, Canada and UK. If you’re coming from elsewhere you’ll have to connect through one of these countries.
The most expensive flights are in the summer months. Cheaper flights can be found between November and March, except at Christmas when Bermudians living overseas fly home and Bermuda’s expatriate workers return to their countries of origin.
When searching for flights online use the code BDA for LF Wade International Airport. It’s the only airport in Bermuda and is situated in St George’s Parish.
It is also important to note that Bermuda’s immigration regulations state that visitors need to purchase a return or onward ticket to visit the island.
From the US
The vast majority of Bermuda’s tourists and business traveller are Americans. US visitors have the greatest choice when it comes to deciding who to fly with when they visit the island.
Historically airfares to the island have been high. However the recent entry of low fare airlines such as JetBlue and AirTran Airways has increased competition and pushed prices down to more reasonable levels.
In the summer months there are non-stop flights to Bermuda from Atlanta, Baltimore, Boston, Charlotte, Miami, New York, Newark, Philadelphia, and Washington.
Passengers flying to the US from Bermuda clear US Customs at LF Wade International Airport and are treated as domestic arrivals when they reach their destination in America. It’s a big timesaver.
