Delta Air Lines Planning Second Daily Flight Between St. Thomas and Atlanta
CHARLOTTE AMALIE — Delta Air Lines plans to add a second daily flight between Atlanta and St. Thomas this summer.
American Airlines is “seriously considering” restoring its third daily Miami-St. Thomas flight, as well as expressing interest in a new route from Dallas.
United Airlines will serve the Houston-St. Thomas market beginning in May with weekly Saturday service before daily flights from June 6 – August 19, along with nonstop flights from Washington, D.C. scheduled over a similar period and intermittent Saturday flights from Newark over the summer.
And inside the Caribbean, talks have begun with LIAT to increase frequency or capacity on the Antigua-St. Thomas route.
The news was announced Tuesday by Tourism Commissioner Designee Joseph Boschulte at a Florida-Caribbean Cruise Ship Association meeting.
“We are steadily restoring confidence in our destination,” Boschulte said, promising that the department “will leave no stone unturned to maintain and increase airlift to both islands, especially as more accommodations come back on line.”
