SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico -- Signaling a renewed commitment to the San Juan market, Seaborne Airlines will launch twice daily flights from San Juan Luis Munoz Marin International to Terrence B. Lettsome International Airport serving Tortola in the British Virgin Islands. Service will commence on October 1 and flights are available for sale.
According to Omer ErSelcuk, Seaborne CEO, "Our de Havilland DHC-6-300 aircraft are flown to full Part 121 standards with two pilots as well as two engines. They are also configured to 17 instead of the usual 19 seats providing excellent seating comfort."
In addition to comfortable seating and the safety of two pilots, Tortola customers will have access to a premium lounge at SJU, and a Concierge Desk. The lounge offers comfortable seating, work areas, charging stations, light refreshments, WIFI access, and Direct TV. The dedicated and experienced professionals at the Concierge Desk are available to assistance our guests from new reservations, to flight changes, late check-in, problem solving, as well as any special requests.
Additionally, Seaborne corporate customers have access to FasTrak SJU security access, which allows travelers to go to the head of the TSA line.
Beginning in the first quarter of 2013, service in Tortola will be upgraded to Saab 340B equipment offering 34 seats per departure and improved travel times. The Saab 340B will also be deployed on existing routes to St Croix, St Thomas, and Vieques.
