Grounded low-cost carrier REDjet yesterday reported that negotiations to get it flying again were at a “sensitive stage”, as Trinidad and Tobago warned of a possible withdrawal of its operating licence.
The word of caution was issued by Minister of Transport Devant Maharaj as REDjet officials remained tight-lipped about the state of flight resumption talks.
“REDjet continues to negotiate with relevant authorities and due to the sensitive nature of talks, cannot comment any further at this time,” said the carrier in a statement posted on its website and Facebook page.
The airline, however, indicated that staff members were working “around the clock” to maintain the integrity of its business and to ensure a smooth and efficient transition when services resume.
No further details were forthcoming from REDjet officials, but the DAILY NATION understands that the carrier has been seeking a multimillion-dollar financial injection from the Barbados Government.
