Caribbean Star puts Curacao-Trinidad service back on map

Antigua-based Caribbean Star Airlines has reinstated plans to offer a daily roundtrip flight between Trinidad and Curacao, effective Dec. 1.

The flight will depart Trinidad at 9:45 a.m., arriving in Curacao at 12:10 p.m. On the return, the flight will depart Curacao at 12:45 p.m., arriving in Trinidad at 3:10 p.m.

Introductory fares start at $69 each way and must be purchased by Dec. 1 for travel on or after the launch date.

In news unrelated to the announcement of the new Trinidad-Curacao service, Caribbean Star and LIAT began formal merger discussions earlier this month.

The announcement of the new Curacao service follows Caribbean Star's recent recertification under new Civil Aviation Regulations passed in Antigua and Barbuda earlier this year.

Caribbean Star had previously announced intentions to expand to Curacao in May, but the service was postponed before its scheduled start date in July, pending the carrier's successful recertification.

"Curacao has been at the center of our expansion plans for quite some time," said Skip Barnette, president and CEO of Caribbean Star and its sister airline Caribbean Sun. "I'm pleased that the governments of Curacao, Trinidad and Antigua showed their support by authorizing the new service so quickly."

With the addition of the Curacao service, Caribbean Star will serve 13 Caribbean gateways with more than 635 flights per week.
