Seaborne Airlines has broadened its codeshare partnership with American Airlines to include flights to St Thomas and St Croix, meaning passengers booking Seaborne travel on American’s website or through a travel agent can accrue American’s AAdvantage miles flying between the St Thomas and St Croix airports or to and from San Juan, Puerto Rico from both islands.
Seaborne Airlines operates San Juan to St Thomas, San Juan to St Croix, and between St Thomas and St Croix with three roundtrips. A seasonal flight from San Juan to St Croix will be added from 7 June.
The carrier has also introduced a new seaplane to operate between the St Croix and St Thomas seaplane bases, a service which operates up to 12 times per day. A second new aeroplane is scheduled to begin operations in the summer.
Furthermore, Seaborne has invested over $300,000 introducing new tents, docks, benches, and other improvements to both the St Thomas and St Croix seaplane bases.
Seaborne also offers interline connections from the United States Virgin Islands with JetBlue Airways, Delta Airlines, United Airlines and European air carrier Air Europa at San Juan's Luis Munoz Marin International Airport.
