New Non-Stop Flights announced to the USVI
Reading the post below is very exciting when also considering the St. Thomas, USVI airports 250 million dollar expansion plans recently announced. Two of my favorite picks below are the Orlando FL direct to St. Thomas via Spirit Air and the Charlotte NC direct to St. Thomas via American.
The addition of these new direct flights from the US into the USVI will serve all travelers to the region including those making their way onward to the BVI.
From the USVI Department of Tourism:
The Territory will benefit from increased airlift in the coming months as
Spirit Airlines inaugurates a new service while American Airlines and other carriers boost their operations. Spirit has started nonstop flights three times weekly between Fort Lauderdale (FLL) and St. Croix (STX) and will inaugurate service between Orlando International Airport (MCO) and Cyril E. King Airport on St. Thomas (STT) with three flights a week, beginning November 8, 2018.
Meanwhile, American – which already serves St. Croix and St. Thomas with flights twice daily from Miami to both destinations – will begin daily service between St. Thomas and Charlotte from November 4, 2018. In addition, the carrier will resume flights between Philadelphia and St. Thomas on December 19; and between New York and St. Thomas on December 22.
United Airlines will offer daily nonstop service between Washington Dulles International Airport (IAD) and St. Thomas this winter, while JetBlue Airways will resume its daily Boston-St. Thomas route between February 14, 2019, and April 22, 2019. The airline will continue to provide service to both St. Croix and St. Thomas from San Juan this winter.
Delta Air Lines will continue serving St. Thomas with flights from New York and Atlanta as well as between Atlanta and St. Croix.
With all the amazing new flights above travel to Villas in Tortola, Virgin Gorda or Jost Van Dyke in the BVI will be so much easier. I’ll post flight deals as I find them and of course would love see any that you find as well. You can message me from FaceBook or email from the contact info at the bottom of this page.
