Airports in Tortola

Terrance B. Lettsome International Airport (EIS)


Beef Island Airport, or the Terrance B. Lettsome International Airport (EIS), is a tiny airport serving the British Virgin Islands. The airport takes up most of Beef Island, which is located just 9 miles (15km) from the region's major island of Tortola. The airport only accepts small aircraft (64-seater maximum), and most traffic consists of chartered flights. Nearby Trellis Bay makes for a fantastic last-minute stop on your way out of the country: a last chance to soak up some Caribbean sun before boarding the plane to take you back home.


The airport is situated nine miles (15km) from Road Town, Tortola.
