Cyril E. King Airport is the busiest airport in the US Virgin Islands. It is located a few miles west of Charlotte Amalie which is located on the island of Saint Thomas. This is also the port of arrival for some of the other surrounding islands. The airport will be renewed and expanded in four different phases.
If you have a transfer to Henry E. Rohlsen Airport (HERA) you will of course fly through but otherwise you will end up in the ST Thomas airport arrivals hall. After the baggage claim you can choose to go to your final destinations by taxi, but there are also many Cyril E. King Airport departures with rental cars.
The current terminal consists of two floors. The ST Thomas airport departures level consists of one part that provides flights to the US and Puerto Rico and the other part to St. Croix and other international destinations. There are also two sections for the Cyril E. King Airport arrivals. The flights below are operated regularly, if not daily. Due to corona, more flights will be canceled or temporarily stopped anyway.
