The JetBlue Airlines nonstop daily flight from Luis Muñoz Marín International Airport in San Juan, Puerto Rico, to the Henry E. Rohlsen Airport on St. Croix will return to service in December, the airline announced Wednesday, signifying a significant growth opportunity in passenger arrival potential to the island.

The daily route is expected to take flight Dec. 14. JetBlue previously served St. Croix from 2011 to 2019, according to the airline.

“I am excited to welcome JetBlue back to the island of St. Croix,” shares US Virgin Islands Tourism Department Commissioner Joseph Boschulte. “The addition of seats into the territory from Puerto Rico not only expands our accessibility from the island and mainland United States but also provides a new opportunity for inter-Caribbean travel. We want to extend our gratitude to the JetBlue team and look forward to welcoming travelers to experience a Vibe Like No Other in St. Croix.”
