Operator News




Saint Croix, USVI based Seaborne Airlines announced yesterday an agreement with the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico to relocate its corporate headquarters to San Juan. Puerto Rico will take an equity position in the carrier and have two seats on the board of Seaborne's parent company Coastal International Airways. The move is expected to create up to 400 new jobs in Puerto Rico, where Seaborne's 16 SAAB 340B aircraft will be based.

There is however no change anticipated to the existing routes flown by the Twin Otter floatplane operation, which will continue to be centered around the U.S. Virgin Islands from a base in Saint Croix.


Coincidently, I happened to run across these two brilliant shots of C-GKBV this afternoon, which were taken late last month off Saint Thomas. Thanks very much to the original photographer for the permission to use them here.
