The Government of Trinidad and Tobago made an historic decision recently, in granting a provisional license to Caribbean Star Airlines to operate nine flights daily between Piarco International Airport in Trinidad and Crown Point International Airport in Tobago. Undoubtedly, this decision will ease the problems experienced by commuters between the two islands, while at the same time stimulate tourism, particularly in Tobago.
The service is expected to commence towards the end of September with two early morning round trip flights and two evening flights, with one connecting service to Barbados, which will allow seamless connections with British Airways, Virgin Atlantic and Air Jamaica.
According to the President and Chief Executive Officer of Caribbean Star Airlines, Paul Moreira, “We are pleased to be given the opportunity to be of service to the people of Trinidad and Tobago and more so, to be in a position to assist in improving the tourism product in Tobago. We would like to thank the people of Trinidad and Tobago for their support over the past 20 months and the phenomenal growth in passengers carried; and we look forward to working closely with the hoteliers, the business community and the Tobago House of Assembly to assist in Tobago’s continued economic development.”
Judging from the flood of enquiries into Caribbean Star’s Reservations Department and at travel agencies, the news has been well-received by both Trinidad and Tobago travelers and the wider region. Caribbean Star Airlines continues to play a very vital role in regional aviation and with this latest move, the airline has reinforced its commitment to provide high quality and affordable service throughout the Caribbean.
Caribbean travelers can also look forward to newer and more exciting routes in the fourth quarter of 2002.
