As optimism grows in the travel industry, United Airlines is continuing to expand its Caribbean network, Caribbean Journal has learned. 

In fact, United Airlines will soon be flying more flights to the Caribbean, Mexico and Central America than it did in 2019 — before the pandemic. 

“We are proud of United’s deep roots and history throughout Latin America,” said Patrick Quayle, United’s vice president of International Network and Alliances.  “In May, we will greatly expand our Latin America schedule, offering even more options than we did in 2019.  This will include numerous opportunities for travelers reuniting with friends and family and those seeking a warm-weather, beach destination.”

The US Virgin Islands is reporting “strong” tourism numbers amid the pandemic, significantly outperforming much of the rest of the Caribbean. 

In an environment that has seen deep declines in tourism arrival numbers, the USVI has weathered the pandemic storm well, says US Virgin Islands Tourism Commissioner Joseph Boschulte. 

The US Virgin Islands welcomed 415,749 air arrivals in 2020; while that was a 35.1 percent reduction compared to 2019, it was a far smaller decline than the 65.5 percent visitor decline the wider Caribbean saw last year.
