BARBADOS IS GETTING increased airlift from Trinidad.

This comes with Caribbean Airlines’ (CAL) launch of its fall schedule, which took effect on September 10.

The airline’s management said the new schedule was “designed to facilitate better connectivity within the Caribbean and between North and South America”.

It will feature daily service from Trinidad to Grenada and Barbados “where flights will connect to Caribbean Airlines’ flight bank at Piarco International Airport, Trinidad to various destinations throughout the Caribbean Airlines network.

These include Miami, New York, Toronto, Jamaica, Guyana and The Bahamas”, the airline said.

Its chief executive officer Michael DiLollo said the carrier was on “a path to better serve its valued customers”.

“Our new fall schedule is built for easy connectivity to destinations within and outside the Caribbean region.

The time of the services from Barbados and Grenada to [and] from Piarco, Trinidad, with connections throughout our network, are ideal for business and leisure travellers,” he said.

“The schedule gives our valued customers an early start, late evening returns and easy connections in Piarco with ‘walk in and walk off’ service soon to be implemented similar to the service provided to our Guyana passengers. It means our customers’ precious time can be put to the best use.”

DiLollo said CAL was “in the exclusive position of having hubs in the southern Caribbean in Trinidad and Tobago and in the northern Caribbean in Jamaica”.

This, he added, allowed the airline to be “uniquely positioned to provide visitors to, and citizens of, the region with many travel options”. (SC)
