interCaribbean Airways on Monday announced new scheduled flight routes in the Eastern Caribbean between Barbados, Grenada, St. Lucia, St Vincent and the Grenadines.
Beginning on August 1, the airline will offer flights connections from Barbados’ Grantley Adams International Airport to Grenada, St. Lucia, St. Vincent and the Grenadines and Dominica. Prior to the COVID-19 pandemic, interCaribbean operated in the region as far South as St. Lucia.
The scheduled expansion in the Eastern Caribbean will give connective travel to the existing 22 cities served by interCaribbean across its Pan-Caribbean network as services are restored.
For more than two decades, interCaribbean’ operations were focused in the Western Caribbean, with services major cities in Bahamas, Cuba, Dominican Republic, Haiti, Puerto Rico, Jamaica, and its home base Turks and Caicos Islands.
In December 2015, interCaribbean began operations in the Eastern Caribbean with scheduled flights to Antigua, and has been gradually expanding its footprint in the region.
Company CEO, Trevor Sadler, stated, “the demand for our flights across the Caribbean continues to grow, with the introduction of jet aircraft into our fleet with more coming soon. We truly look forward to offering an optimal interCaribbean experience to the satisfaction of all customers. Never has it been easier to get around the Caribbean.”
interCaribbean Airways was established 28 years ago in the Turks & Caicos Islands and have rebranded over the years to broaden the airline’s scope to connect the Caribbean.
Commenting on the airline’s vision, Founder and Chairman, Mr. Gardiner, stated, “Building interCaribbean into what it is today has taken the full dedication of my entire team. The direction of the last 10 years culminates in introducing these new services to deliver a Caribbean-born and grown airline and become a leader in the region. It is my desire that every budding entrepreneur follows their calling and work towards their dreams. I did not start out imagining what we have become today, but continually calibrated and maximized every potential opportunity to grow this company. Our goal now is to fully consolidate ourselves in the region and become a globally recognized brand.”
The airline has had an impeccable safety record, and has pledged to offer more affordable air travel to propel Caribbean integration.
Since the failure of regional airline LIAT, six carriers including interCaribbean Airways have stepped forward to offer services in the region.
