Airport Update: Changes Upon Arrival Starting Next Week

Flying over Water Island near the STT airport

For those of you who are traveling to St. John soon, there are some changes at the airport to be aware of.

Starting next Tuesday, the regular passenger pickup area will be temporarily relocated across the street and in front of the new parking and transportation center. A new crosswalk will be painted and a ramp will be construction to ensure that travelers can easily cross the street when waiting for taxis or to be picked up.

The new passenger pickup area will be behind the white Jeep.

The existing passenger pickup area will be demolished, so a new lane can be constructed. Soon we will have two lanes exiting the airport, which will allow for smoother travel, according to the Virgin Islands Port Authority (VIPA).

The new parking and transportation center has been under construction for quite some time. According to VIPA, it is expected to open in April. Fingers crossed!

Another nice update at the airport is airline signs. You can now see exactly where your airline counter is when getting dropped off at the airport.

New airport signs!

For those of you who haven’t flown out of STT yet, it could be a four-step process if you are checking a bag. And even if you are not, you have to go through Customs before security. Click here to read all about navigating the St. Thomas airport when traveling home. 

That’s all I have for you today. Have a great one everyone!
