Frontier Airlines will begin service to the USVI from Orlando in February 2021.
Starting in February 2021, Frontier will serve St. Thomas (STT) with flights twice each week from Orlando International Airport (MCO).
USVI Commissioner of Tourism Joseph Boschulte announced that Frontier’s new seasonal service from Orlando will give travelers in Central Florida even more options for travel to the Territory during the peak winter season.
“We are grateful for and greatly encouraged by Frontier’s partnership and support of our efforts to build aerial access to the U.S. Virgin Islands. The carrier’s strategic decision to inaugurate service to ‘Rock City’ is another critical airlift development success for the Territory, as it helps us to address the growing demand of stateside visitors—as well as Virgin Islanders living abroad—to come to the USVI,” said USVI Commissioner of Tourism Joseph Boschulte in a press release statement.
“Airlift development for St. Croix and St. Thomas is a central element of the Department of Tourism’s FY 2021 marketing strategy, which will be unveiled and implemented in the coming weeks,” stated Commissioner Boschulte, who added that in response to the Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic, “we have delivered clear and consistent messages to the travel marketplace that the U.S. Virgin Islands wants travelers to ‘Reconnect with Paradise’ in a safe and healthy manner.”
Pandemic-related guidelines for traveling to the U.S. Virgin Islands include the requirement for every traveler aged 5 or older to submit a COVID-19 test result through the secure online USVI Travel Screening Portal.
