St Vincent’s new international airport (airport code SVD) opened in February 2017, enabling direct flights to and from SVG.
American Airlines – Miami [MIA]
Saturdays, MIA-SVD: year round
Caribbean Airlines – New York [JFK]
Saturdays: year round
Air Canada Rouge – Toronto [YYZ]
After the Covid interruption, Air Canada is resuming weekly YYZ-SVD flights on Mondays as of November 1, 2021.
For many, the best way to get to SVG from Canada before their course is a flight from Toronto-Barbados (BGI), connecting to SVG on Intercaribbean Airways. While you can also return home through Barbados after the course, if you stay over until Monday you can go home on the direct flight to Toronto.
If you can spare the time, take the direct flight to SVG on Monday before your course and spend a few days getting to know St. Vincent!
Announced in 2020 but delayed due to Covid. Expected to be operational in 2022. In the meantime, there are convenient connections through Barbados.
If you cannot acquire direct flights, most guests arrive by international flight landing in Barbados, and then take an inter-island connection (about 40 minutes) to St Vincent. InterCaribbean Airways runs one or more scheduled connections from SVG to Barbados each day, and also has connections to and from St. Lucia and Grenada
Our own airline, SVG Air is expected to resume flights as the recovery from Covid continues.

When You Arrive
Our full-service charter base is a 20-minute drive from St Vincent’s airport. We are located at Blue Lagoon, the best protected harbour on St Vincent’s south coast.
If you’ve notified us of your flight details and arrival time, we’ll be happy to send a taxi to meet you at St Vincent’s Argyle International Airport. The ride to our base takes about 25 minutes and costs $6 per person (minimum 4 person charge). Someone will be here to meet you at our marina and settle you into your shore accommodation or aboard the yacht (sleep aboards available only if guests arrive before 7.00 p.m.).
- From North America, in addition to direct flights noted above, there may be scheduled flights to St Lucia (UVF) and Barbados (BGI) from New York (JFK), Miami (MIA) and Toronto (YYZ).
- Barbados (BGI) is usually the best transit airport as there are regular flights to St Vincent.
- From Europe, the best route is usually from London (LGW) to Barbados BGI (British Airways and Virgin Atlantic), then connecting to St Vincent (SVD).
- Both from North America and from Europe, Trinidad (POS) is another possible hub, though note that this route may require guests to overnight there either on the way out or on the way home and there have also been instances of the connecting flight from Trinidad to St Vincent being cancelled.
- Other possibilities from Europe would be from Paris (PAR) or Amsterdam (AMS) to St Maarten (SXM), although the connection to SVD is currently suspended due to Covid
- San Juan (SJU) is a possible hub, but the cost is likely to be higher than routing via Barbados (BGI)
- If flying via St Lucia, remember that there are two airports there. Most international flights arrive at and depart from Hewanorra International Airport (UVF) but check with your airline to be sure, as (UVF) is an expensive, one-hour taxi ride from the other airport, George Charles (SLU).
Despite some web sites advertising a ferry service, there are currently NO international ferry services to or from St Vincent.
