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.
Trinidad and Tobago
There is a ferry across the strait from Venezuela, and many cruise ships stop over at Port of Spain. Airlines flying to Trinidad and Tobago include (all to Port of Spain on Trinidad unless otherwise specified):
- Star Alliance - Continental
- Oneworld - American, British Airways (Port of Spain and Tobago)
- Sky Team - Delta (Port of Spain and Tobago)
- Other selected - several Caribbean based airlines, Virgin Atlantic (Tobago only)
TIP On the Caribbean airlines the cheapest fares tend to be only available booking directly (on website if airline has one).
TIP Port of Spain 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.
TIP A few European low cost airlines fly to Tobago.
UPDATED November 2009 - Continental switch from Sky Team to Star Alliance. No change to advice.
