The Veterans Administration Caribbean Healthcare System recently started providing veteran flights from St. Croix to the VA in Puerto Rico. Victorino Concepción, an Army veteran from St. Croix, U.S. Virgin Islands, recently became the first participant of the inaugural charter flight that provides roundtrip air transportation services to eligible veterans.
The flight provides services from the U.S. Virgin Islands to the Luis Muñoz Marín International Airport located at Carolina, Puerto Rico. Transportation originates in the Cyril E. King Airport located on St. Thomas, V.I., and the Henry E. Rohlsen Airport located on St. Croix. The aircraft can carry nine passengers with wheelchair and oxygen capabilities. There will be approximately four flights per week, depending on need.
“This has been an excellent experience. When I arrived at the airport, they were waiting for me. This is truly a first-class service to veterans.”Victorino Concepción
The Bohlke team is honored to be part of the solution in helping our Veterans get to and from the VA Healthcare System in Puerto Rico. This initiative was spearheaded by our sister company M&N Aviation in San Juan, Puerto Rico.
