Caribbean Airlines on Saturday officially launched its service between Ogle and Barbados. The flights will initially operate three times weekly on Mondays, Fridays and Saturdays.
The first flight from Grantley Adams International Airport, Barbados touched down at Eugene F. Correia International Airport, Ogle at 10:30 a.m. using an ATR72 turboprop aircraft.
This marks the first time that Caribbean Airlines is operating on the route once dominated by Liat.
Local operator Trans Guyana Airways recently announced that it will operate five weekly flights on the same route beginning on November 1.
With Trinidad’s borders still closed, Caribbean Airlines has been forced to improvise, setting up a mini hub in Barbados.
At the recent launch of it’s Dominica – Barbados service, Caribbean Airlines’ CEO Garvin Medera, stated: “Caribbean Airlines is fulfilling our mandate to make regional travel easier and more convenient and this network expansion is working in parallel with our strategic interline agreements to facilitate seamless connections from international destinations via Barbados to St. Lucia, St. Vincent, Antigua, Kingston, Jamaica and now Dominica.”
