Cape Air has announced the resumption of commercial and relief flying in the Caribbean, including the British Virgin Islands (BVI).

It said a ‘limited schedule’ covering October 2 through to October 31 will offer daily flight service between the following routes:

San Juan – Mayagüez (4 RT/day)
San Juan – Vieques (3 RT/day)
San Juan – St. Thomas (3 RT/day)
San Juan – Tortola (3 RT/day)

Cape Air, which is an employee-owned company based in the United States, said its service to and from Henry E Rohlsen Airport in St Croix is expected to resume on Thursday (October 5) when the said airport reopens.

“The safety of our employees, resuming daily service, and offering relief flights in the region has been the sole focus of our company for the last two weeks,” said the Chief Executive Officer of Cape Air, Dan Wolf.

He continued: “We have been strongly committed to the communities we serve in Puerto Rico, the US Virgin Islands and the British Virgin Islands since we began Caribbean service in 1998. The entire Cape Air family of over 1,000 employees will continue to support the territory through this trying period.”

Cape Air said it will continue to work in tandem with authorities to establish an ongoing flight schedule more typical of their regular scheduled service.

The airline further stated that it has capped fares as well as shipped food, water, clothing and other supplies to the region. More than$100,000 was also donated by employees and vendors in support of the victims of hurricanes Irma and Maria, Cape Air added.
