Busiest Caribbean Airport
Originally named Harry S. Truman Airport, and then becoming the Cyril Emmanuel King Airport (1984), this east Caribbean airport has been relocated 2 m/3 km west of the business region of Charlotte Amalie on St. Thomas in the United States Virgin Islands since 1990.
Known by the initials, STT, Cyril Emmanuel King Airport serves the British Virgin Islands and neighboring St. John, transporting over a million passengers per year. This is very impressive statistic considering it has only one main runway and 11 gates at the terminal. Recent statistics state that the airport supports close to 180 planes per day, with half being of the air taxi type. There is considerable general aviation types of aircraft associated with this airport due to Ace Flight Center, an aviation school. Additionally, over 10 percent of the air traffic is due to commercial planes along with a small percentage of military air traffic on the island. Examples of commercial airlines are American Airlines with flights to Miami and New York (JFK) and Delta Air Lines with a year round destination to Atlanta. Travelers can expect these planes to be Airbus A300s. One air taxi type includes Air Sunshine flying to places like San Juan and Sint Maarten among others Caribbean locations.
