Cape Air announces the start of the first commercial flights out of St. Thomas since Hurricane Irma devastated the island. Cape Air is offering four daily round-trip flights between St. Thomas and St. Croix. The temporary flight schedule will fall within the 9 a.m. and 4 p.m. travel window, as allowed by USVI authorities. All seats on all flights during this time are $69 one-way. The temporary service began Sept. 15, and will run through today, Sept. 18.
“We are proud to be the first airline to offer scheduled service out of St. Thomas after Hurricane Irma. We will continue to work with local authorities to provide the much needed service between the islands,” said Linda Markham, President of Cape Air. “Our commitment with the communities we serve is strong and we will support the territory through these moments of hardship.”
The airline has been offering humanitarian relief flights in support of the victims of Hurricane Irma. Direct service between St. Thomas and San Juan was canceled through Sept. 17. Cape Air will continue to work in tandem with authorities and will resume regular scheduled service as soon as possible.
For customers seeking service from St. Thomas (STT) to San Juan (SJU) via St. Croix (STX), please call 800-CAPE-AIR to book as these connections are not currently bookable online.
