AIRPORT REMAINS CLOSED TO COMMERCIAL TRAFFIC
Commercial flights will resume at the Cyril E. King Airport on St. Thomas once the Transportation Security Administration is fully functional, V.I. Port Authority Executive Director David Mapp said Friday. Damage to the roof is preventing TSA from operating its equipment and repairs were hampered further by today’s heavy rains.
Local officials will meet with TSA and the airlines Sunday in order to determine when normal operations will resume, he said.
Humanitarian and military flights are scheduled for this weekend. Scheduled charter flights from major airlines are expected to begin Monday.
Those with travel reservations are advised to contact their airline for updates on schedule changes.
