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....

We purchased tickets on the first morning flight from San Juan Isla Grande to Vieques. Our flight was delayed due to mechanical issues that needed to be addressed in Vieques. We were scheduled to depart at 8:30 am, but didn't takeoff until 10:30 am. The VAL ticketing agent was extremely apologetic and even refunded the money that he had charged...

When you fly on VAL you get friendly service on a very small plane. On this small island if all the people are ready the plane might leave early, or they might help you in some other way. If you live on the island, chances are you know the staff and owner by name. They are committed to make the...

We flew VAL from Isla Grande which is much cheaper than flying from the international airport in San Juan. We had a great experience with super easy check in and on time departures and smooth air. We especially were happy with our experience of leaving an item in our rental car in Vieques. Our pilot Antonio Torres personally took the...

I have taken multiple flights with this airline to and from Vieques and Culebra. If you leave from Ceiba the trip is very quick, up and down in only about 10 minutes. We've always had good service with the airline and pilots are always friendly and sociable. I highly recommend flying with them. Just don't overpack, that's on you, not...
