July 18, 2005 Caribbean Sun Airlines will launch a new service between St. Thomas and St. Maarten on August 1 with two daily flights in each direction.
Janise Robinson, who serves as Caribbean Sun's manager in the Virgin Islands, said in a news release that the new flights will provide much-needed direct service as well as allow passengers to connect with flights headed for France and the Netherlands.
"This is a real opportunity for the Virgin Islands to look at additional European business at a time when it is remarkably attractive for Europeans to travel to the United States," she said in a press released dated last week.
