Commissioner of Tourism Pamela C. Richards is pleased to announce that the inaugural flight of the United States Virgin Islands’ Danish charter will arrive on St. Croix, Friday, April 2. The Department of Tourism will host a grand celebration to welcome its 236 passengers at St. Croix’ Henry E. Rohlsen Airport with rum punch, mocko jumbies and quelbe, the official music of America’s Caribbean.
“We are excited about the arrival of this new direct air service from
Denmark,” Commissioner Richards said.
“The inaugural flight is sold out, and we are anticipating several thousand visitors in the first year alone as a result of the new charter service, which will provide an easy connection between Denmark and the United States Virgin Islands.”
The new service will offer bi-monthly flights from Copenhagen, Denmark to St. Croix, with connections to St. Thomas. The nine-hour flight can accommodate up to 224 economy class passengers and 12 business class passengers.
The charter, operated aboard an Airbus 310-300 aircraft, will
provide year-round service, with the exception of a brief six-week break during the early Fall season.
