This week United Airlines announced they will start daily flights from both Houston (IAH) and Washington DC (IAD) to St Thomas (STT).
Both flights are a reasonable time in the morning and get you into St Thomas at 12:15p and 3:40p respectively. From DC, you could make the 2pm ferry out of Red Hook and be in your rental Jeep before 3. From Houston, you’d make the 5pm ferry and arrive in time to catch a happy hour or 2 on St. John!
Also, if you are from the New Jersey/New York City area, United will be offering weekly flights from Newark (EWR) to St Thomas.
There is now no excuse not to pack your bags and spend time this summer on St John! Come on — you know you want to stick your toes in our waters!
