We are planning a trip from Miami to Puerto Rico in January 2018 but we are concerned about safety as the flight path lies within the Bermuda Triangle.
What can you tell me about the safety of flights within this triangle?
According to the US Coast Guard, the Bermuda Triangle is not a real phenomenon. They claim that the agency "does not recognize the existence of the so-called Bermuda Triangle as a geographic area of specific hazard to ships or planes".
The National Oceanographic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) of the USA states:
The U.S. Navy and U.S. Coast Guard contend that there are no supernatural explanations for disasters at sea. Their experience suggests that the combined forces of nature and human fallibility outdo even the most incredulous science fiction. They add that no official maps exist that delineate the boundaries of the Bermuda Triangle. The U. S. Board of Geographic Names does not recognize the Bermuda Triangle as an official name and does not maintain an official file on the area.
