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.
