Seaborne Airlines Adding Over 240 Percent More Capacity U.S.V.I. With Increased Flying From San Juan To Both St. Croix And St. Thomas

Business / News / Top Stories / Travel / Virgin Islands / December 19, 2018

Seaborne Airlines said on Wednesday that it’s making a significant investment and commitment to the Caribbean and U.S. Virgin Islands by adding over 240 percent more capacity, including up to 29 more weekly departures, which is nearly 1,000 additional seats.

According to the release, the following Seaborne routes increase from twice daily to three times daily on December 20, 2018:

  • San Juan’s Luis Muñoz Marín International Airport (SJU) – St. Thomas Cyril E. King Airport (STT)
  • San Juan’s Luis Muñoz Marín International Airport (SJU) – St. Croix Harry E. Rohlsen Airport (STX)
  • St. Thomas Cyril E. King Airport (STT) – St. Croix Harry E. Rohlsen Airport (STX)

On January 8, 2019, Seaborne’s service between San Juan (SJU) and St. Croix (STX) increases from three to five daily flights.

In addition, Seaborne will be adding a second seaplane to its operation.

“As part of the new Silver/Seaborne operation, we are committed to growing our operations in the U.S. Virgin Islands and providing our customers with safe, reliable and friendly service,” said Seaborne Airlines CEO Steve Rossum.

“The demand for both leisure as well as business travel to St. Croix in the months ahead justifies the addition of air seats and we would like to thank Seaborne for its partnership and commitment to our territory,” said Department of Tourism Commissioner Beverly Nicholson-Doty.

The Puerto Rico Tourism Company’s Executive Director Carla Campos welcomed the increased services between the U.S. Territories as she underscored the ties between Puerto Ricans and Virgin Islanders.  “Puerto Rico connects most of the Caribbean to the continental U.S.,” said Ms. Campos.  “Seaborne’s increased capacity to St. Croix and Santiago, Dominican Republic is a testament to the fact that leisure and corporate travelers are looking to explore the wonderful attractions and shopping opportunities in our destination.”  Ms. Campos also thanked Seaborne for its commitment to the Caribbean and to Puerto Rico, and the U.S. Virgin Islands, in particular, according to the release.

Seaborne said it’s currently working with airline partner JetBlue to accommodate passengers previously booked on JetBlue flights that are being discontinued.

Seaborne also this week announced it is returning to the Dominican Republic with nonstop service between San Juan’s Luis Muñoz Marín International Airport (SJU) and Santiago de los Caballeros Dominican Republic’s Cibao International Airport (STI) starting February 14, 2019.  The initial service will operate three days per week on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays, and will increase to daily service May 23 – September 3, 2019.
