Cape Air has announced the start of the first commercial flights out of St. Thomas, since Hurricane Irma devastated the island on Tuesday, September 5, 2017.
Cape Air is offering four daily round-trip flights between St. Thomas (STT) and St. Croix (STX). The temporary flight schedule will fall within the 9:00 AM and 4:00 PM travel window, as allowed by USVI authorities.
The temporary service begins Friday, September 15, 2017, and will run through September 18, 2017.
“We are proud to be the first airline to offer scheduled service out of St. Thomas after Hurricane Irma. We will continue to work with local authorities to provide the much needed service between the islands,” said Linda Markham, President of Cape Air.
“Our commitment with the communities we serve is strong and we will support the territory through these moments of hardship,” she added.
The airline has been offering humanitarian relief flights in support of the victims of Hurricane Irma. Direct service between St. Thomas (STT) and San Juan (SJU) is currently canceled through September 17, 2017. Cape Air will continue to work in tandem with authorities and will resume regular scheduled service as soon as possible.
