Flying into Frederiksted is possible, though for the majority of people it will mean at least one stop. Additionally, even though there is an airport on the island of St. Croix (where Frederiksted is located), many will fly into the US Virgin Island of St. Thomas first, where there is a larger international airport.
When you fly into St. Croix, you will only be coming from a handful of places. If you hope to fly direct from outside the Caribbean, your options are even more shallow. A flight from Miami is currently the only year-round flight to St. Croix offered, so unless you live in or near Miami, you will likely be making one or two stops.
When flying from the United States the following list may be useful. Booking services may not show the best options so it can be useful to realize which airlines actually offer direct service to this location.
|Miami, FL, USA||MIA||American Airlines|
If you are already in the Caribbean, or plan on making a layover, your options still are not that diverse.
Check the following table for a listing of scheduled air service from airports in the region. Even if there are no flights from an airport near your home, taking a connecting flight from another Caribbean airport might prove to be a fine option.
|Antigua, Antigua and Barbuda||ANU||LIAT|
|Isla Verde, Puerto Rico||SJU||Jet Blue, United Airlines|
|Roseau, Dominica||DCF||Coastal Air|
|Simpson Bay, The island of St. Martin and Sint Maarten||SXM||LIAT|
|St. Thomas, US Virgin Islands||STT||Cape Air, Seaborne Airlines|
|Vieques, Puerto Rico||VQS||Cape Air, Seaborne Airlines|
The important thing to realize about the limited options is that during the high season, flights can get booked. With only a handful origin flights avaliable, and no ferry service to get you from the larger airport to St. Croix, you will need to make sure to book earlier and ensure your seat.
When you finally arrive, you'll be able to pick up your rental car from the airport, or have a taxi drive you for a set rate of $6 to $12(USD) per person depending on how many passengers are riding.
