Please be advised of reports of an outbreak of mosquito-borne Zika virus affecting parts of Latin America, the United States and the Caribbean, including Aruba, Bahamas, Barbados, Cayman Islands, Costa Rica, Colombia, Cuba, Curaçao, Dominican Republic, Ecuador, Florida, Haiti, Grenada, Mexico, Puerto Rico, St. Maarten, St. Thomas, St. Croix, St. Lucia, Texas and Turks and Caicos.
The risk of mosquito-borne transmission on aircraft is extremely low and customers traveling to affected areas should follow the recommendations provided by the CDC at http://www.cdc.gov/Travel.
What is Zika?Zika is a mosquito-borne virus that is spread to people through mosquito bites.
What are the symptoms?The most common symptoms of Zika are fever, rash, joint pain, and conjunctivitis. The symptoms are usually mild and can last several days to a week. Many people infected with Zika will not develop symptoms or even realize they have been infected.
What is the treatment?There is no vaccine to prevent or medicine to treat Zika. Travelers can protect themselves from contracting Zika by taking steps to prevent mosquito bites, such as using insect repellent, wearing long sleeves and pants, and staying in places with air conditioning or window and door screens.
Zika and PregnancyZika virus can be spread from a pregnant woman to her unborn baby and can cause serious birth defects and other poor pregnancy outcomes. The CDC recommends special precautions for pregnant women and women trying to become pregnant:
Does Zika virus infection cause GBS?We do not yet know if there is a connection between GBS and Zika virus infection. It is difficult to determine if any particular pathogen or germ “causes” Guillain-Barré syndrome (GBS). The Brazil Ministry of Health has reported an increased number of people who have been infected with Zika virus who also have GBS. CDC is working with Brazil to study the possibility of a link between Zika and GBS.
Because the spread of Zika is ongoing, travelers should check the CDC travel website for the most up-to-date locations and recommendations: http://www.cdc.gov/Travel

When leaving St. Croix we recommend you arrive at the airport at least three hours prior to departure.
Avoid delays by checking for traffic alerts, and allow enough time to go through security screening, particularly during holidays and peak travel days. Please note, JetBlue has cutoff times for baggage check in, and also for check in at the departure gate; JetBlue will not be responsible for expenses incurred due to late check in.
You will need a boarding pass to get through security. Gates are assigned by the airport authority on a daily basis and will vary within the general boarding area.
Documents required for travel vary according to citizenship, residency, age (for minors), length of stay, purpose of visit, student status, etc.
St. Croix is part of the United States Virgin Islands. U.S. Citizens and Lawful Permanent Residents are not required to present a passport for direct travel to STX but a valid government issued ID is required and an original birth certificate with a raised seal is recommended. STX is unique in that while a passport is not required to enter the country if you are a US citizen, proof of US citizenship is required to leave the country on a flight departing for the US. So customers either needs to provide a valid passport or a birth certificate along with a government issued ID to the immigration officials. Though it is a US territory, immigration is run by the Dutch government which is why proof of US citizenship is required.
Because of this, all customers are strongly recommended to travel with a passport to avoid any citizenship/residency issues that may arise. Please check for specific requirements for the country (or countries) you are visiting to make sure you have the correct entry/exit documents.
