Chairman of Caribbean Airlines resigns

PORT OF SPAIN, Trinidad, CMC – Chairman of the state-owned Caribbean Airlines (CAL) George Nicholas has tendered his resignation, the Trinidad Guardian newspaper reported Wednesday. It said that newly appointed Transport Minister Devant Maharaj had confirmed Nicholas’ resignation. “Yes. I can confirm this. I am in receipt of his letter but I cannot say anything more,” he told the newspaper. But CAL’s Communications Manager Laura Asbjornsen said she was unaware of Nicholas’ resignation. Nicholas’s 10 month appointment has been highlighted by public conflicts with the then Works and Transport Minister Austin Jack Warner, the controversial dismissal of the airline’s chief executive officer, Captain Ian Brunton and the acquisition of Air Jamaica routes and aircraft.
