We didn't get to fly on third one but found out they DO NOT refund even if THEY cancel. They will only give you a credit. I tried several times to get a refund from them but it fell on deaf ears! I'm just thankful we didn't get stuck there for the hurricane. Even though they ferry isn't the most...

Ferry is inexpensive, but takes a whole lot longer than flying. And non-residents can get bumped. So we fly, and we use Vieques Air Link. VAL will get you there safely and quickly. No airline gives you loads of room or luxury when you're island hopping. I really wish their weight limit were the same as other airlines (35lbs. for...

We opted to fly to Vieques instead of the ferry - glad we did. Arrived 60min prior to flight. Easy check-in, friendly staff, on time 10min flight. Great views!

This was our first time on a small airplane and it was an incredible flight, everyone enjoyed the trip. There were just beautiful views flying to/from Vieques Island. My daughter was co-pilot (which meant she got to sit up front) along with 8 others on the short flight. The pilots in both directions where very nice. WARNING--only 30lbs of luggage...

This small plane was a fun way to leave Vieques for San Juan. We took the ferry there and decided to use the plane on our way home. We are so glad we did!! We had a fun, quick 20 minute flight and it saved us so much hassle. It did take off 30 minutes late, but my sister and...

It was a short flight of 71/2 minutes, in an 8 seater plane. The check in was normal, but they restrict the luggage a lot - I guess due to the weight limitations.

Avoid this airline. It is a scam. We arrived 80 minutes before the flight and the would not check us in. They would not put us in the next flight either. They just take your money. Called to complain: "we do not give refunds or place you in a different flight". So you loose your money. It is a SCAM

VAL - Vieques Air Link is a nice way to transport you from the main island Puerto Rico to the smaller islands. We flew to the Island of Viesques and it only took an 18 minute flight. We started in San Juan International Airport where we went to the far left Check-In booth to get our tickets and have our...

Worst air company. Small and trash. We booked flight through its website and we didn't receive any email confirmation or ticket information. When we get to the airport for check in, the agent told us the check in process was already closed because we should check in 1 hour before our plane leave. But we didn't even know this policy....
