ROAD TOWN, Tortola, VI - With Tropical Storm Warnings lifted for the Virgin Islands, according to the Department of Disaster Management (DDM) through the Antigua and Barbuda Meteorological Services, the BVI Airports Authority (BVIAA) has indicated that normal operations have resumed at the territory's airports.

"The BVI Ports Authority is pleased to advise that complete assessments have been executed on the territory's airports following the passage of Tropical Storm Karen. As a result, normal operations will resume on Wednesday, September 25, 2019,' the BVIAA said in a release sent this morning.

As such, operations will resume at the T.B. Lettsome International Airport, the Taddy Bay Airport in Virgin Gorda and the Auguste George Airport in Anegada. The department also noted that travellers are encouraged to contact their airline representative to sort out concerns with flight schedules. 

Tropical Storm Karen continues to move north away from the Virgin Islands after depositing strong winds and rains across the territory. In earthquake-shaken Puerto Rico, the storm brought torrential downpours and is now growing stronger as it continues north, according to the National Hurricane Center.

Ferry service resumes 

Meanwhile, a notice from New Horizon Ferry has indicated that the 'The Jost Van Dyke Ferry' will resume operations as well.

"We have decided to resume normal operations today, following the passage of tropical storm Karen, and after getting the official “all clear” from Government," effective 7:00am, the service said in an update. 

Remaining schedule for today includes departures from JvD at 2:00pm and 5:00pm with departures from West End Tortola set at 4:00pm and 6:00pm.

    Better get your Beef Island flights in before the airport is shut down because of degraded runway surface that was to be redone a few years ago. The monies where spent some where else.
