Delta Airlines will be resuming service from Atlanta to St Croix, the US Virgin Islands Department of Tourism announced.

The weekly Saturday flights from Atlanta’s Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport to St Croix’s Henry E Rohlsen Airport will run from Dec. 20, 2014 to May 10, 2015, with purchase available beginning June 21.

“We are committed to bolstering service to the entire Territory and these new flights are part and parcel of our strategy,” said USVI Tourism Commissioner Beverly NIcholson-Doty.

The flights will be operated on an MD-88 plane with 149 seats.

“We anticipate promoting this service throughout the Atlanta metro area, and in key feeder markets such as Alabama, Ohio, Minnesota and Tennessee,” Nicholson-Doty said.

In a statement, USVI Governor John de Jongh said the new service would help boost both tourism and economic development plans.

“Tourism, small business development and information technology, including broadband, are key pillars of our economy, and we believe that this new air service will advance our efforts in these areas,” he said.
