Antonio Rivera Rodríguez, the airport in Vieques, is a small commercial air facility owned by the Puerto Rico Port Authority and a hub for small local airline companies. Airlines offering flights to Vieques fly out of Luis Muñoz Marin in San Juan (SJU), the Isla Grande Airport (SIG), and the airport in Ceiba, PR (RVR). Ever since the exit of the United States Navy from the island in 2003, the airport has become a more important part of the economy since most of the island’s revenue is derived from tourism.
