U.S. Air Carriers Step Up St. Thomas Service
Three airlines will increase service to St. Thomas, according to U.S. Virgin Islands Commissioner of Tourism Beverly Nicholson-Doty.
Spirit will up its frequency from Fort Lauderdale to St. Thomas to daily, effective March 10. Delta will reinstate its daily service from New York to St. Thomas on May 24. JetBlue will operate a second daily flight from San Juan to St. Thomas, effective Feb. 15.
While hotels and resorts rebuild, there is demand from guests staying at inns, bed and breakfasts, boutique hotels, villas, apartments, condominiums, timeshares and yachts.
With the latest flight additions, the U.S. Virgin Islands is now being served by approximately 13,000 seats each week -- 9,000 to St. Thomas and 4,000 to St. Croix (not including intra-island service).
