Effective immediately, Seaborne Airlines codeshare partnership with American Airlines has been expanded to include both St. Thomas and St. Croix, the airline announced in a press release issued Monday.
Customers booking Seaborne travel on the American Airlines website or through a travel agent can now accrue AAdvantage miles flying between the St. Thomas’ Cyril E. King Airport and St. Croix’s Henry E. Rohlsen Airport, as well as to and from San Juan from both islands.
Seaborne Airlines flies San Juan to St. Thomas, San Juan to St. Croix, and between St. Thomas and St. Croix with three round-trip flights a day. A fourth flight from San Juan to St. Croix will be added seasonally, effective June 7.
Aside from American Airlines, Seaborne offers interline connections from U.S. Virgin Islands with JetBlue Airways, Delta Airlines, United Airlines and European air carrier Air Europa at San Juan’s Luis Munoz Marin International Airport.
Seaborne Airlines indicated several other material improvements have been made to airlift in the U.S. Virgin Islands. The carrier introduced a new seaplane to operate between the St. Croix and St. Thomas seaplane bases. Seaborne operates this service up to 12 times per day. A second new plane is slated to come online later this summer.
In addition to the new planes, Seaborne said it has invested more than $300,000 introducing new tents, docks, benches and other improvements to both the St. Thomas and St. Croix Seaplane bases.
Seaborne Airlines has been operating in the Caribbean for more than 20 years, carrying more than 2.5 million customers safely. With over 1,500 monthly departures to 15 airports, Seaborne serves San Juan’s Luis Munoz Marin International Airport, St. Thomas’s airport and seaplane base, St. Croix’s airport and seaplane base, Tortola, Dominica, Martinique, Guadeloupe, Saint Maarten, St. Kitts, Nevis, La Romana, Punta Cana and Santo Domingo. The 16th airport, Anguilla, will launch April 30.
