Planning your trip to Bermuda
The Bermuda International Airport (BDA) is the main gateway. It gets flights from major cities on both sides of the Atlantic. As Bermuda has the world's highest landing and parking fees for airlines, the price of air tickets to Bermuda is correspondingly higher than that to other destinations in the Caribbean.
