~ Promotion represents continued commitment to St. Croix air service ~

St. Croix, U.S. Virgin Islands, August 31, 2009 - The U.S. Virgin Islands Department of Tourism has announced the return of its St. Croix Fantastic Flight promotion to entice potential visitors to St. Croix over the coming months.

Visitors who book between September 1 and October 5, 2009 for travel to St. Croix between September 1 and November 15, 2009 will receive a $150 per-person airfare credit and a fourth night free at participating hotels.

The new offer is a key element in the Department's strategy to ensure continued air service to St. Croix, and will leverage recent commitments for increased air service to the island this fall.

Through the ongoing efforts of the Governor's Office, Virgin Islands Port Authority and Department of Tourism, American Airlines has recently agreed to extend its daily service to St. Croix from Miami at a time when seasonal reductions have historically resulted in service three days a week.

The St. Croix Fantastic Flight offer was developed to ensure sustained load factors on the Miami flight and represents an added investment to ensure the continuation of daily service to St. Croix, and to keep the destination competitive with others in the region. The offer also aims to address the barrier of higher fares for travel to St. Croix compared to St. Thomas and other Caribbean destinations that enjoy an ample supply of carriers and airlift relative to demand.

"We're pleased to introduce this offer at a time when we can help support American Airlines' continued daily service to St. Croix this fall and added service from both American Airlines and Delta Air Lines this winter," said Tourism Commissioner Beverly Nicholson-Doty. "We remain committed to finding ways to underscore the need for continued and increased service to the island."

Hotels participating in the St. Croix Fantastic Flight promotion include: The Buccaneer, Carambola Beach Resort & Spa, Chenay Bay Beach Resort, Club St. Croix, Colony Cove, Company House Hotel, Divi Carina Bay Resort, Hibiscus Beach Resort, Hotel Caravelle, King Christian Hotel, The Palms at Pelican Cove and Sand Castle on the Beach.

The package is based on double occupancy, applies to new bookings only and cannot be combined with other promotions. St. Croix Fantastic Flight must be booked through one of the following participating tour operators: AA Vacations,, Delta Vacations, Expedia, GoGo Worldwide Vacations and Travelocity.

The Virign Islands is such a beautiful place to go. I have noticed that there are significant deals going on right now that make the USVI very affordable to go visit. I think it is great that you can have your choice of some wonderful Hotels such as The Buccaneer (my personal favorite), Bolongo Bay, and others. This is the promo of a lifetime!
