Seaborne, Cape Air to Increase Flights to STX

Seaborne Airlines and Cape Air will increase flights to St. Croix to meet demands for travel to the island during the winter tourism season, according to a news release from the V.I. Department of Tourism.

Seaborne Airlines will increase its San Juan – St. Croix route from two to three daily flights beginning Thursday. On Jan. 8, Seaborne will increase its frequency from three to six daily flights.

In January, Cape Air will start ramping up its operations to an average of six daily flights between San Juan and St. Croix, increasing the number of seats by about 50 percent, according to the Department of Tourism news release.

The additional flights during the peak winter season will more than compensate for the 100 seats lost with the discontinuation of daily JetBlue Airways service effective Jan. 8, DOT said.

While passengers will no longer be able to fly to St. Croix on JetBlue’s aircraft, flights can be booked via JetBlue through its codeshare relationships with both Seaborne and Cape Air.

The department also announced it would increase its marketing of LIAT flights to St. Thomas with connections over Antigua.
