Private jet plane over the tropical seaHere are a few more tips and recommendations for navigating the Henry E. Rohlsen airport on St. Croix:

– Direct flights / connections from STX (vary by season)

  • Direct to Miami via American Airlines (daily)
  • Direct to Atlanta via Delta Airlines
  • Direct to Charlotte via US Airways
  • Connect to Boston in St. Thomas via American Airlines
  • Connect to Dallas in San Juan via Southwest Airlines
  • Connect to New York City in San Juan via Jet Blue
  • Connect to Washington D.C. in San Juan via Jet Blue

– Seaplanes are another option

If you just need to island hop, the sea plane to St. Thomas may be the way to go.  In addition to having a quick water taxi option to St. John, STT has more connection options.  If you fly with Seaborne, just be clear on if you’re taking a sea- or land-based flight, as the sea plane flies in and out of Christiansted harbor (versus the mid-island airport).

Passports are not required

As St. Croix is a U.S. territory, no passport is required to visit.  However, it does expedite your check-in and security clearance if you have it with you.  So if you already have one, it is worth bringing.  Especially if you make a last-minute decision to island hop, you can hit the British Virgin Islands and other nearby international islands.

– Rum can ride along free

If you’re a fan of rum, you’ve come to the right place!  St. Croix is home to both the Cruzan Rum and Captain Morgan distilleries.  You can check up to six bottles in a box without a checked baggage fee.  From a local grocery store, rum prices start at just $7 per liter and there is no sales tax in the U.S. Virgin Islands.

Chris and Kerri Hanley like rum.  They also like helping people find their ideal St. Croix residence.  With more than 45 years of combined experience, they are the authority on Virgin Islands real estate, with Chris taking the title of top broker on-island in 2014.  Contact them today and download our complimentary guide the 10 Best Reasons for Living on St. Croix.
