Sky High Dominicana will start service connecting the Dominican Republic and St. Croix, beginning Dec. 13, Virgin Islands Port Authority Executive Director Carlton Dowe announced Tuesday.
The airline will provide a flight connecting the two islands every Wednesday onboard the contemporary Embraer-190 aircraft, which can comfortably accommodate 97 passengers: nine in the Business class and 88 in the Economy section. The flight’s 50-minute duration ensures passengers have an efficient and pleasant journey to their destination, according to the press release.
Dowe lauded the authority’s board and staff for their aggressive approach toward improving inter-Caribbean airlift for residents and visitors. “VIPA will continue to work closely with the Bryan/Roach Administration and the USVI’s Department of Tourism to seek additional airlift that will keep our islands connected as well as connect the USVI to the rest of the Caribbean and the world,” he said.
This addition of St. Croix marks Sky High Dominicana’s commitment to expanding its network, bringing its total destinations to 21 locations across the Caribbean, North America, and Central and South America, the release stated. These strategic initiatives are primed to boost tourism and fortify connections in business and the diaspora between the USVI and Santo Domingo, it said.
“Our vision is to seamlessly connect destinations, and our newest route to St. Croix embodies this very ethos. Every new route is a promise of unparalleled service and comfort to our passengers,” said Cesarina Beauchamps, president of Sky High Dominicana.
