Seaborne Airlines announced Monday that effective immediately, its codeshare partnership with American Airlines has been expanded to include both St. Thomas and St. Croix in the U.S. Virgin Islands.
Customers booking Seaborne travel on the American Airlines website or through a travel agent can now accrue AAdvantage miles flying between the St. Thomas and St. Croix airports or to and from San Juan 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 round-trips. A fourth flight from San Juan to St. Croix will be added seasonally, effective June 7.
Aside from American Airlines, Seaborne offers interline connections from the USVI with JetBlue Airways, Delta Airlines, United Airlines and European air carrier Air Europa at the Luis Muñoz Marín International Airport.
Seaborne Airlines has made several other material improvements to air lift in the USVI, it said, including introducing a new seaplane to operate between the St. Croix and St. Thomas seaplane bases. A second new plane is slated to come online later this summer.
In addition to the new planes, Seaborne has invested more than $300,000 introducing new tents, docks, benches, and other improvements to both the St. Thomas and St. Croix Seaplane bases.
