Cape Air has expanded its Caribbean presence with the start of daily service between St. Croix, USVI and Vieques, Puerto Rico. Fares for flights start at $70 each way.
Schedule Effective July 1, 2012:
Dep. STX 9:40am Arr. VQS 10:03am Frequency: Daily
Dep. VQS 10:25am Arr. STX 10:48am Frequency: Daily
Originally, the service, which ran from December 11, 2011 through May 7, 2012, was slated to be seasonal only. The decision to connect these two islands with daily flight service on a year-round basis was made after consideration of customer feedback, as well as requests from government and tourism leaders on St. Croix and Vieques. Cape Air's Vice President of Planning, Andrew Bonney, said, "As both Vieques and St. Croix continue to grow as not only tourist destinations, but also commerce centers, we realized that providing inter-island service would benefit travelers and locals alike. It is important for us to be able to listen to the suggestions of our passengers, and respond quickly to meet those needs."
