VI government offers airlines freebies

Fly to the islands, land free.  That’s the offer being made by the V.I. Port Authority to airlines which begin new flights to the territory between Dec. 1 and March 31.  "It will give the airlines an opportunity to test the waters," a spokesman for the Authority told the St. John Source.  Both airports – on St. Thomas and St. Croix – are included.  It typically costs an airline $562 in fees to land a Boeing 767 in the VI’s.  The spokesman said "We put the offer out to all the current  carriers and those that don’t fly here."
