STX Airport Overview

To help you plan your layover or overnight sleepover, here is a quick run-down about what to expect during your time at St. Croix Henry E. Rohlsen Airport.

What to Expect

The small terminal at St. Croix Airport (code: STX) handles inter-island and North American flights. The check-in area is open-air, so you may be exposed to tropical weather. Amenities are limited to one eatery and two shops, including a duty-free. Free WiFi helps pass the time.

Covid-19 Update

Due to the current Covid-19 pandemic, all services and times listed below are subject to change. Some services and facilities may remain closed or operate with reduced hours.  Airport tips and suggestions in this guide and elsewhere on the site were written before March 2020 and may no longer be valid. If you are planning to sleep in the public area of the terminal overnight, have a back-up plan! We’ve heard from a few travellers at other airports and they were not permitted to stay overnight. We’re not sure if that will apply to this airport, until a reader lets us know the current situation. We will start updating all of our guides in October 2021.  To help us with this massive update, you can add or update information or write a review and submit photos and airport tips.

In this guide we may refer to locations as “landside” and “airside”. Landside is the public area of the terminal located in the non-secure zone, before security. Airside is the secure area of the terminal that you must reach by going through security.  For more information on Europe’s Schengen Area, click here.
