CARIBBEAN AIRLINES TO CUT BACK ON FLIGHTS TO JAMAICA!

CMC – —

Head of Communications at Caribbean Airlines, Clint Williams has confirmed reports that the airline will be cutting back on the number of flights to Jamaica.

For several weeks it was rumoured that flights to Jamaica would be reduced.

During a sitting of Parliament’s Standing Finance Committee, on Tuesday; Transport Minister, Dr Omar Davies, told the committee that no information was forthcoming from Caribbean Airlines.

However, in a RJR interview on Wednesday, Williams said that the decision had been made to reduce the flights and this becomes effective on April 16.

Williams stated that it was made based on the travel patterns observed, and as part of the move for the airline to become more efficient.

He said some of the scaling back had already started.

“We have reduced frequencies on a number of routes where we see that there was excess capacity, where loads were not as full,” said Williams.

Caribbean Airlines, which began operations in 2007, acquired Air Jamaica in 2011. The Jamaican Government has a 16 per cent stake in the Trinidadian air carrier.
