Traveling to Jost Van Dyke is very easy to do. Most major U.S. Airlines fly into St. Thomas from major U.S. cities. Our recommendation for people coming from the U.S. is to fly directly into St. Thomas.
It is best to take the earliest flight out of your departure city and return on a late afternoon flight out of your arrival city.
