Business / News / Tourism / Travel / Virgin Islands / August 10, 2018

ST. CROIX — The Virgin Islands Port Authority is inviting the public to a design charrette to view and discuss VIPA’s vision to transform the Henry E. Rohlsen Airport Terminal
into a modern facility to better serve travelers and the users of the St. Croix terminal, according to a release issued Friday.

VIPA said the charrette will be held on August 21 at 5:30 p.m. at the HERA Terminal Cruise
Lounge on St. Croix. It will be hosted by Port Authority officials and its aviation consultant, American Infrastructure Development, according to the release.

Planned improvements for HERA Terminal include:

  • The redesign, expansion, and modernization of the interior of the terminal to make best use of the existing floor plan.
  • The addition of a second level to accommodate jet bridges, additional hold room, concession and retail space.
  • Improve passenger flow and baggage handling.
  • Tropical landscaping, and improvements to assist with the flow of vehicular
  • traffic.

The HERA charrette follows a similar event in St. Thomas for the Cyril E. King Airport, where VIPA officials took the wraps off of an ambitious plan to modernize the facility. Governor Kenneth Mapp said the CEKA redesign would come at a cost of $230 million.

Feedback, suggestions and ideas are encouraged and welcomed. For more information, contact the Port Authority’s public relations office at (340) 774-1629 or [email protected]<mailto:[email protected]>.
