United Airlines is launching its newest Caribbean route next month, new scheduled service from Newark to St Thomas in the United States Virgin Islands.
United will be operating the route four times each week, with roundtrip service on Sundays, Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays, according to the company.
The new flights will kick off Sept. 3.
United is also adding a pair of new routes to Puerto Rico, with new service from both Chicago and Washington-Dulles to San Juan’s Luis Munoz Marin International Airport.
Even with the new launch and the resumptions, United is flying just 30 percent of its wider international schedule as compared to the same period in 2019.
“We continue to be realistic in our approach to building back our international and domestic schedules by closely monitoring customer demand and flying where people want to go,” said Patrick Quayle, United’s vice president of International Network and Alliances. “In September, we’re adding even more options for leisure travelers or those who want to visit friends and relatives, whether that’s within the United States or around the world.”
The US Virgin Islands has been open for tourism since the beginning of June. Here’s what travelers need to know.
