About VIRGIN ISLANDS PORT AUTHORITY
The Virgin Islands Port Authority (VIPA) is a semi-autonomous agency that owns and manages the two airports and the majority of the public seaports in the United States Virgin Islands. We are also charged with maintaining the harbors in the territory. The law stipulates that VIPA must make its properties available to the public so that the populace may reap the benefits of these facilities.
VIPA derives it operating revenues from user fees and rental fees charges to users of its airport and marine facilities on St. Thomas, St. Croix and St. John, U.S. Virgin Islands. The agency is expected to be financially self-sufficient, and does not receive nor does it contribute any funds to the USVI government. Federal and state government grants are given to the Authority to support its capital construction programs - provided that VIPA meets all eligibility requirements. The federal government also offers Passenger Facility Charges (PFC's) to fund airport projects only. These airport related improvements must be approved by the Federal Aviation Administration.
Just about everything that is used or consumed by the residents of the U.S. Virgin Islands enters the islands through boat or ...by plane. Food, clothing, machinery, mail, furniture, vehicles, building supplies, medical equipment - it all enters through the ports. Therefore, the Port Authority touches the lives of every single resident and visitor in the Virgin Islands. In addition, the territory's major economic contributor is a bustling tourism industry which blossomed in the 1960's. Tourism accounts for about 80 percent of the islands' gross domestic product and employment. The islands are a popular destination for travelers from every corner of the world seeking the perfect vacation. These key factors make the airports and seaports in the territory a critical component in the strength and growth of islands' economy. Any investment or improvement to our port facilities secures our territory's economic future.
The Port Authority is governed by a Board of Governors which sets policy. The executive director is responsible for implementing these policies, and overseeing the day-to-day operation of the agency. Board meetings are held every third Wednesday of each month. At these meetings, the board reviews the Authority's financial reports, review and approve requests to lease port property, award contracts for port development projects and set policies that will efficiently manage our resources as well as keep our port facilities competitive with other destinations.
