Leasing Port Authority Property

Property Management Department

The Virgin Islands Port Authority offers the majority of its properties in both the aviation and marine division for lease. Aviation properties include terminal spaces (offices, counters and concessions), cargo warehousing, and general aviation-related spaces. Marine properties include unimproved spaces for warehousing and passenger facility spaces (offices, counters and concessions) and many more.

Our director of property management oversees the control and administration of lands, facilities and other improvements under the jurisdiction of VIPA. The property management department negotiates leases, permits and contractual concession agreements, and other satellite activities pertaining to property management - including the supervision and collection of revenues for VIPA.  All requests to lease property, establish a concession or to obtain permits to use VIPA's facilities should be made in writing to the attention of the property manager.


Note that requests to use VIPA's facilities free of charge to sponsor an event should be directed to the executive director's office.
