BVI Airways receives revised AOC

BVI Airways moved closer to its goal of starting services to Miami with its Avro RJ100s when it received a revised Air Operator Certificate (AOC) allowing it to operate its RJ100s from Beef Island airport in Tortola from Air Safety Support International, the Civil Aviation Authority for the United Kingdom Overseas Territories. The airline will now seek approval to fly to the US from US authorities—no easy task, as it involves the Department of Transportation (DoT), the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), the Transportation Security Administration (TSA), and the Department of Homeland Security (DHS). “We are working as fast as we can to make this happen,” said Jerry Willoughby, President and CEO of BVI Airways, “but the regulatory process, by its nature, is outside of our control.”
