St. Croix, U.S. Virgin Islands (May 8, 2024)—Today, JetBlue Airlines announced the return of service to St. Croix. The nonstop daily flight from Luis Muñoz Marín International Airport (SJU) in San Juan, Puerto Rico, to the Henry E. Rohlsen Airport (STX) signifies a significant growth opportunity in passenger arrival potential to the island.

 

“I am excited to welcome JetBlue back to the island of St. Croix,” shares US Virgin Islands Department of Tourism Commissioner Joseph Boschulte. “The addition of seats into the territory from Puerto Rico not only expands our accessibility from the island and mainland United States but also provides a new opportunity for inter-Caribbean travel. We want to extend our gratitude to the JetBlue team and look forward to welcoming travelers to experience a Vibe Like No Other in St. Croix.”

 

The newly added route, anticipated to launch in December 2024, will contribute to the continued expansion of the U.S. Virgin Islands airlift capacity, which has exhibited substantial growth, with a projected year-over-year increase of 24%.
