Getting to St Thomas (& St John) will be quicker starting 2013


If you want to get to St John or St Thomas via San Juan it will be much quicker starting January 2013. Seaborne Airlines reports it is acquiring the Saab 340B to add to their fleet fourth quarter 2012 and will begin flights January 2013. The Saab offers:
  • 34 Seats with comfort levels at or better than most jetliners
  • Quick! The Saab will give Seaborne the fastest overall travel times on the routes they serve!
This fuel efficient aircraft will replace the Twin Otter on San Juan flights while supplementing St. Croix/St. Thomas flying. A minimum of three aircraft are planned to be in service by March 2013.

Expanded Flight Schedule and Destinations
  • San Juan: Seaborne plans to boost capacity by several thousand seats per week. The capacity increase will be driven by the introduction of the Saab as well as additional daily flights in all markets served.
