Bermuda beckons: Nonstop flights from the Washington, DC area set to take off


Travel enthusiasts in the Washington, D.C. area are in for a treat as they can now fly nonstop to the picturesque island of Bermuda. BermudAir and American Airlines have announced new flights from Baltimore/Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport (BWI) and Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport (DCA), respectively.

Bermuda, a British Overseas Territory, is an enticing destination known for its pink-sand beaches, historic sites, and vibrant local culture. The island’s turquoise waters offer exciting opportunities for snorkeling and scuba diving. At the same time, the colonial town of St. George, a UNESCO World Heritage site, provides a charming glimpse into Bermuda’s past.

BermudAir will offer three weekly roundtrip flights on the new route between BWI and Bermuda’s L.F. Wade International Airport (BDA), starting March 18, and American Airlines will offer daily roundtrip service between DCA and BDA, starting April 5. American Airlines had previously offered a seasonal service; however, those flights were halted during the COVID-19 pandemic. Flight time from the Washington, DC area to Bermuda is approximately 2.5 hours.


While popular Caribbean destinations such as Jamaica and The Bahamas are currently under travel advisories by the U.S. State Department, Bermuda stands out as a safe and appealing alternative. The island has implemented comprehensive health and safety measures to ensure the well-being of its visitors, making it an ideal choice for those seeking a tropical getaway.

In addition to its natural beauty and cultural attractions, Bermuda offers a range of accommodations to suit every budget, from luxury resorts to charming bed and breakfasts. The island’s culinary scene is another highlight, featuring fresh seafood, traditional Bermudian dishes, and international cuisine.

As we approach the summer season, there’s no better time to plan a trip to Bermuda. With the convenience of nonstop flights from Washington, D.C., this enchanting island is now more accessible than ever.
