As demand continues to grow for the US Virgin Islands, another carrier is expanding its service to the Caribbean destination.
Frontier Airlines has announced plans to launch a new nonstop route between Miami and St Thomas beginning in March.
The new service, which will operate on Sundays and Thursdays, is set to begin March 7.
That’s along with soon-to-debut service on Frontier from Orlando to St Thomas, with twice-weekly service that will begin Feb. 19.
“We are once again thankful for this partnership with Frontier as the carrier works to meet existing and create new demand for travel to the U.S. Virgin Islands with affordable fares,” said US Virgin Islands Tourism Commissioner Boschulte.
The US Virgin Islands has been open for tourism since September, with a region-leading travel portal that has been an exemplar for safe tourism reopenings in the Caribbean.
It’s yet another new route for Frontier at Miami International Airport, part of what the airline’s senior vice president of commercial called “exceptional growth at Miami’s convenient airport.”
Indeed, Frontier has been steadily ramping up its Caribbean network out of Miami, including recent expansions to destinations like San Juan and Cancun.
Every traveler aged five and up who enters the US Virgin Islands is required to use the USVI Travel Screening Portal and submit a negative test result taken and received within five days before travel.
Notably, as a US territory, the USVI is exempt from the new CDC requirement of negative tests for travelers returning home to the United States.
