The Department of Tourism has announced the addition of a third American Airlines daily flight between Miami and St. Croix next summer.

D.O.T. Commissioner Joseph Boschulte reported that between June 4, 2020 and August 17, 2020 the Dallas carrier will operate a third daily flight, utilizing a 172-seat Boeing 737 aircraft.

American Airlines flight 2531 will depart Miami at 10:35 a.m., arriving St. Croix at 1:14 p.m., while the return flight departs St. Croix at 1:59 p.m., arriving Miami at 5:10 p.m.

The other two flights depart Miami at 12:05 p.m. and 5:35 p.m., and leave St. Croix at 3:29 p.m. and 8 a.m. (the following day), respectively.

Mr. Boschulte said the expansion in airlift dovetails seamlessly with the department’s efforts to increase stakeholder support for its long-term strategy to “strengthen demand for St. Croix by developing a distinctive brand for the island.”

American Airlines will serve the Miami-St. Croix market with three daily flights for the upcoming Thanksgiving holiday (November 23-25 and November 30-December 2, 2019), a welcome boost in holiday seats for “The Big Island”.

American also extended Charlotte-St. Croix flights from Saturday-only to daily during the peak Christmas period (December 18-24; December 26-30, 2019; and January 1-6, 2020).

Mr. Boschulte thanked American for its commitment to the U.S. Virgin Islands, and underscored that the department will work closely with the airline to ensure the new flight is successful.
