Sky High to Fly to St. Croix Starting August 23

Virgin Islands Port Authority Executive Director Carlton Dowe announced today that Sky High Dominicana will start service connecting the Dominican Republic and St. Croix, U.S. Virgin Islands next month. Dowe said that the official start date for this new service is August 23, 2023.

Sky High Dominicana will provide twice weekly flights between the Dominican Republic and St. Croix on Wednesdays and Saturdays using a 97-passenger Embraer-190 aircraft. The airplane seats 9 in the opulent business class and 88 in the economy section. The flight's swift 50-minute duration ensures passengers have an efficient and pleasant journey to their destination.

VIPA Executive Director Dowe lauded the Authority’s Board and staff for their aggressive approach towards improving inter-Caribbean airlift for residents and visitors. “The recently renewed airline incentive available to any airline that provides new routes in the U.S. Virgin Islands has proven to be a valuable and successful marketing tool. VIPA will continue to work closely with the Bryan/Roach Administration and the USVI 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,” Dowe 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," stated Mrs. Cesarina Beauchamps, president of Sky High Dominicana. This addition of St. Croix marks Sky High Dominicana’s steadfast commitment to expanding its network, bringing its total destinations to 21 locations across the Caribbean North America, Central and South America, said Commercial Manager Victor Nina. “With this latest route to St. Croix, Sky High Dominicana proudly announces its second connection to the US Virgin Islands, complementing the already successful regular flights to St. Thomas,” said Nina.
