Tobago / International Flights

By Sara Macefield

Flights from outside the Caribbean to Tobago tend to concentrate more on the UK and Europe, with a mix of scheduled and charter services from Britain and a weekly flight from Germany. There is just one US service – from New York every Sunday – so American travellers are better placed flying to Port of Spain on Trinidad, which has a greater network of flights from US cities, and taking one of the many hopper flights across to Tobago.

International airlines serving Tobago include:


British Airways on a Monday/Friday in winter and Thursday/Saturday in summer, Monarch Airlines (contact Golden Caribbean) on Wednesday and Virgin Atlantic on Thursday, all out of London Gatwick.


Condor on a Monday from Frankfurt, Germany.


Apollo Travel charter service every two weeks from Stockholm, Sweden due to commence mid December 2013.


Caribbean Airlines from New York (JFK) on Sundays.

International airlines serving Trinidad include:

American Airlines from Miami; American Eagle from San Juan; Air Canada from Toronto; Caribbean Airlines (based in Port of Spain) from Toronto, New York (JFK), Miami, Jamaica, Antigua, Barbados, Guyana and Surinam; Continental Airlines from Newark, New Jersey and Houston, Texas; DCA (Dutch Caribbean Airlines) from Curacao, Surinam Airways from Paramaribo, Surinam and British Airways from London Gatwick.
