St Croix airport US Virgin Islands

Entrance to the Henry E Rohlson airport also know as the St Croix Airport code STX in US Virgin Islands.

Entrance to St Croix Airport in the US Virgin Islands. STX airport code.

The main Saint Croix Airport is called Henry E. Rohlsen Airport (previously Alexander Hamilton Airport) and is located about 6 miles southwest of Christiansted on St Croix and uses the STX airport code. STX is served by three major domestic carriers, and also receives daily inter-island flights as well as cargo and military aircraft.  And Villa Margarita is conveniently located only 8 miles / 15 minutes from STX!

The St Croix airport terminal has working hours from 5:30 a.m. to 11 p.m. It’s our favorite of all US Virgin Islands airports. Perhaps St. Thomas airport (STT airport code) is busier, but we like the simple easy-going style of St Croix airport better. Make sure you get free your  Cruzan rum samples upon arrival at St Croix airport Rum Kiosk!  Such a friendly welcome to a friendly island.

STX airport code means St Croix!

STX airport code means you are in St Croix :)

In terms of amenities, STX is a typical island airport: very limited.  Inside after you check in, there is a only a small gift & liquor shop, a snack counter, an ATM and that’s about it.  Outside, there is a only a small waiting area and no food facilities.  It is especially important to remember that STX airline check-in counters close 1 hour before a flight so you are advised to arrive at STX at least 2 hours before your flight.

You can get more information by calling the main St Croix airport telephone information service at (340) 778-1012.

St Croix Taxi Services and Public Transportation:

Taxi service on the island exists but is less frequent than visitors may be used to back home. St Croix airport taxis can take you anywhere you want to go, but we definitely recommend getting  rental car, unless you plan to spend most your time inside a resort or hotel.

The St Croix Taxi Association provides service to the while island. Click here for St Croix taxi rates.

There is a public bus system called VITRAN which services various parts of the island. Buses run between Christiansted and Frederiksted about every 2 hours daily from 5:30 am and 9 pm. With A/C which is nice. There is no service on Sundays. Bus service is also available at the airport to Christiansted and Frederiksted. The fare is $1 a person. But honestly the bus system is not very reliable, so you’re much better off renting a car.  Not much point coming to paradise just to wait at the bus stop, now is there?

Brief History of the Airport:

The terminal is about 180,000 ft2 with 10 gates. The airport in St Croix USVI covers 1,450 acres, which includes a runway of 10,004 x 150 feet. Originally, the US Army 6th Air Force stationed its 12th Bombing Squadron at an airfield called Benedict Field. Antisubmarine patrols flying B-18 Bolo aircraft from November 8, 1941 to November 10, 1942 used this field.

A public airport terminal was built in September 1948 and named the Alexander Hamilton Airport. In 1996, the Alexander Hamilton airport was renamed the “Henry E. Rohlsen Airport”, to honor a Virgin Island native who was one of the famous Tuskegee Airmen during World War II.  In 2000, the St Croix airport terminal underwent a renovation and expansion. In 2002, the runway was extended once again to allow bigger planes.
