Flight Deal: Fly Nonstop From NYC To St. Thomas For $183
The world is slowly beginning to open again as more vaccines are administered across the globe. People are also beginning to plan ahead for future travel, so we wanted to drop this flight deal to help you save a little money.
Delta Air Lines is currently advertising direct flights from New York’s JFK airport to St. Thomas for as low as $183 round trip. The low price flights are available to those open to traveling between May and June 2021.
The US Virgin Islands began welcoming tourists in September. However, you will need to apply for entry through the USVI Travel Screening Portal. Here, you must upload proof of your negative COVID-19 test result, no more than 5 days prior to traveling.
Because St. Thomas is considered a US territory, United States passport holders are not required to show proof of a negative test result before returning to the US mainland. All other passport holders leaving the islands to go to the mainland, will need to test no more than 72-hours before departure.
Masks are required throughout the island, so be sure to pack extras just in case.
Keep in mind these are basic economy flights. Under this fare class you will not be able to select your seat prior to boarding, and you will be among the last group to board the plane. However, you can still make changes to your ticket if needed.
Things to do in St. Thomas
Magens Bay is the most popular beach on the island and hosts the largest crowds. If you are looking for a spot with fewer people, try Coki, Sapphire, or Morningstar Beaches.
Looking for something a little more active? Visit Charlotte Amalie, which is known for its streets made of steps. Dozens of step streets cut through nearly all the hills rising from the Charlotte Amalie harbor area— the 99 steps are the most popular. The picturesque stairway has colorful flowers on either side making it an easy choice for a photo.
Finally, to get a fantastic view of the island from above, head to the world-famous Mountain Top. Located on the highest point of Saint Thomas, Mountain Top will give stunning panoramic views of Magens Bay, Saint John, and the British Virgin Islands from its observation deck. Mountain Top is also best known for its world-famous banana daiquiri.
As always, deals like this don’t last long. So, if you ready to travel again hop on this fast. But please be safe and follow all rules and regulations.
