Caribbean Airlines adds capacity

By Gay Nagle Myers

Caribbean Airlines will add another aircraft to its fleet on Nov. 15, bringing its aircraft total to eight Boeing 737-800s and five Dash-8 300s.

"This demonstrates the airline's positive growth during a time when other carriers are pulling back service," said Philip Saunders, CEO. "This enhancement allows us to provide more flying options during the upcoming peak season."

The winter schedule out of Trinidad includes two daily nonstops to Toronto; three daily flights, except on Thursdays when there are two flights, to New York Kennedy; daily nonstop flights to Suriname; two new twice-weekly nonstops to Kingston, Jamaica, beginning in late December, to augment the current daily service; daily nonstops to Miami and Fort Lauderdale; and more connections to and from Guyana and Suriname through the Trinidad regional hub.

Caribbean Airlines serves 14 markets in the Caribbean, North and South America and Europe, operating 530 flights a week. That figure jumps to 618 weekly flights in the peak season.

The carrier operated 62 weekly departures when it opened for business in January 2007.
