How to get to | Barbados

This is part of a series of blog entries on how to get to countries and places. Here is a link to the index. I plan to eventually cover every country and some other places. If you have a request for a particular country or place please use the email me link at top right, or leave a comment.

Barbados is easy to reach by cruise ship or by air. Several airlines fly to Barbados including:
  • Star Alliance - Air Canada (from Montreal & Toronto), US Airways (from Charlotte and Philadelphia)
  • Oneworld - American (from Miami, New York and San Juan), British Airways (from London)
  • Sky Team - Delta (from Atlanta)
  • Other selected - Virgin Atlantic, most Caribbean airlines (eg LIAT, SVG Air, etc), some low cost airlines from North America and Europe

TIP On the Caribbean airlines the cheapest fares tend to be only available booking directly (on website if airline has one).

TIP Barbados is a useful stop on a Oneworld RTW or award ticket. The prohibition on mileage earning and redemption for American AAdvantage on British Airways trans-Atlantic flights and BA Executive Club on American trans-Atlantic flights does not apply for flights via the Caribbean.
