CAL to start direct flights between Jamaica and Barbados
T&T Guardian Reports.


Caribbean Air­lines has an­nounced the pro­posed start of non-stop ser­vice be­tween Kingston, Ja­maica and Bar­ba­dos from April 15, 2019 sub­ject to gov­ern­ment ap­proval.

In a state­ment is­sued on Tues­day, the air­line said that busi­ness, leisure and oth­er trav­ellers can fly non-stop every Mon­day and Fri­day be­tween the two des­ti­na­tions.

“The launch of this twice-week­ly non-stop ser­vice be­tween Kingston and Bar­ba­dos, sub­ject to Gov­ern­ment ap­proval, is in di­rect re­sponse to feed­back from our val­ued cus­tomers," Caribbean Air­lines Chief Ex­ec­u­tive Of­fi­cer, Garvin Med­era said.

He added: "The air­line busi­ness is about pro­vid­ing a ser­vice that our cus­tomers want and this flight, is a wel­come ad­di­tion to our net­work, to serve their needs. Caribbean Air­lines is im­prov­ing the reach and ef­fi­cien­cy of our net­work, en­sur­ing we have strong con­nec­tiv­i­ty with­in the Caribbean and we al­so con­tin­ue to de­vel­op more al­liances with in­dus­try part­ners for trav­el out­side the re­gion.”

He said the air­line is look­ing for­ward to the ad­di­tion­al 300 seats that this new Caribbean Air­lines ser­vice from Ja­maica will bring.

"In 2018, we had over 9,000 ar­rivals from Ja­maica – up 2.2% over 2017. This demon­strates this mar­ket's po­ten­tial for growth, and with a strong mar­ket­ing pro­gramme and Bar­ba­dos’ well-packed an­nu­al cal­en­dar of events, we have high hopes for sig­nif­i­cant busi­ness from the is­land,” CEO of Bar­ba­dos Tourism Mar­ket­ing, William “Bil­ly” Grif­fith said.

The ser­vice be­gins on April 15, 2019, sub­ject to gov­ern­ment ap­proval and will op­er­ate every Mon­day and Fri­day de­part­ing Kingston at 2.50 p, ar­riv­ing in Bar­ba­dos at 6.25 pm.

The flight will then de­part non-stop to Kingston at 7.25 pm where it will ar­rive at 9.15 pm.

The real measure of a man's character is what he would do if he knew he would never be found out.

CAL awarded Caribbean’s Leading Airline Brand again.
T&T Guardian Reports.


Caribbean Air­lines has been recog­nised at the World Trav­el Awards 2020, Caribbean Gala Cer­e­mo­ny, with the pres­ti­gious award—Caribbean’s Lead­ing Air­line Brand. This is the fourth con­sec­u­tive year the air­line has earned the ti­tle.

Caribbean Air­lines was al­so nom­i­nat­ed in the Caribbean’s Lead­ing Air­line cat­e­go­ry, an award the air­line won con­sec­u­tive­ly from 2010 to 2019.

Caribbean Air­line’s chief ex­ec­u­tive of­fi­cer, Garvin Med­era stat­ed, “It is an ho­n­our to be recog­nised by the World Trav­el Awards. This is tes­ti­mo­ny to our on­go­ing com­mit­ment to op­er­a­tional and brand ex­cel­lence; and our ef­forts to con­tin­u­al­ly en­hance the cus­tomer ex­pe­ri­ence both on board and on the ground. We ex­tend our grat­i­tude to our em­ploy­ees and all stake­hold­ers for their con­tin­ued sup­port.”

Last year, the air­line launched sev­er­al ser­vice en­hance­ments in­clud­ing a mo­bile app; a new rev­enue man­age­ment sys­tem; a va­ca­tions & tours unit; as well as new routes to Cu­ra­cao and Grand Cay­man. Caribbean Air­lines is al­so ranked 96 of 332 glob­al air­lines for On-Time Per­for­mance in 2019.

In the com­ing weeks the air­line said it will un­veil its 2020 mar­ket­ing cam­paign which promis­es to be riv­et­ing.

The Caribbean Gala Cer­e­mo­ny was held on Jan­u­ary 20, at the San­dals Roy­al Ba­hami­an in Nas­sau and was at­tend­ed by in­dus­try lead­ing fig­ures and pro­fes­sion­als from across the Caribbean. Caribbean Air­lines’ ex­ec­u­tive man­ag­er Mar­ket­ing & Loy­al­ty, Ali­cia Cabr­era and GM Ja­maica (Ag), Trudy Chin, re­ceived the award on be­half of the air­line.

In ex­tend­ing his con­grat­u­la­tions to Caribbean Air­lines, Gra­ham E Cooke, Founder, World Trav­el Awards, says, “Caribbean Air­lines con­tin­ues to set the bench­mark for avi­a­tion in the Caribbean. The air­line’s com­mit­ment to im­prov­ing cus­tomer ser­vice re­mains un­ri­valled and I am de­light­ed that both the trav­el trade and the pub­lic have ac­knowl­edged this ex­cel­lence by vot­ing it ‘Caribbean’s Lead­ing Air­line Brand.’”

The World Trav­el Awards was es­tab­lished in 1993 to ac­knowl­edge, re­ward and cel­e­brate ex­cel­lence across all key sec­tors of the trav­el tourism & hos­pi­tal­i­ty in­dus­try.

The real measure of a man's character is what he would do if he knew he would never be found out.
