Bermuda's location and airlines

Location: W064 44, N3219. Time zone: Atlantic time, one hour ahead of the USA and Canada's EST and four hours behind GMT.

Hear "Bermuda is Another World"

Bermuda, not in the Caribbean but 900 miles north of it, located about 600 miles due east of the nearest mainland, the USA's North Carolina. As the map above shows, there are daily airline services to Bermuda from the USA  (its main business, imports and tourism markets), Canada and Britain (UK). There are no regular airline or shipping services between the Caribbean and Bermuda. Bermuda is Britain's (the UK's) oldest and smallest but most affluent British Overseas Territory, completely internally self-governing (except for external affairs and defense). Thus Bermuda, not the UK, creates its laws including those on citizenship, commerce, customs duties, employment, finance, health, insurance, investments, hospitalization, immigration, taxation, trade, welfare, etc. Bermuda is not part of the European Community, unlike Britain (while membership of the EU remains, after Brexit) and British visitors from the UK, like all other foreign nationals, have no local citizenship or reciprocal free medical services or voting rights. Despite its small size (see below) Bermuda is an important and strategic offshore business jurisdiction, registered corporate home of many multinational business entities of all types, particularly for investment, insurance, reinsurance and property (real estate) companies whose main business operations, management, corporate control  and head offices are located beyond Bermuda, The World Bank - see - rates it as one of the top four jurisdictions in the world in Gross National Income per capita. However, the cost of living is exceptionally high.

Bermuda is 21 square mile (56 kilometers) in total land area, a cluster of small islands (6 main islands and 120 others) in the north west Atlantic Ocean. The main islands are connected by bridges. Bermuda is one of the nine smallest places in the world in total land area, compared to the USA's 9.629 million square kilometers. With nine parishes (counties or districts), each 2.3055 square miles (3.68 square kilometers. Has about 65,000 residents and 550,000 visitors yearly, mostly from cruise ships.
