Jamaican transport and works minister, Mike Henry, has given his approval for regional low-cost carrier REDjet to fly out of Jamaica after it met the technical requirements.
At the same time, REDjet has confirmed it will finally start commercial flights between Trinidad & Tobago and its hub in Barbados next Thursday.
Trinidad & Tobago flights have been delayed since May.
“REDjet now has all licences and all certificates to operate commercial services between Trinidad & Tobago and Barbados,” said communications executive, Nyssa Pierre.
“As of July 19th fares are available.”
The airline was able to reach a compromise with local authorities earlier after it initiated legal proceedings against the Trinidad & Tobago Civil Aviation Authority.
However, Trinidad & Tobago transport minister, Devant Maharaj, revealed in a statement the parties involved has agreed a deal, the terms of which will remain private.
Almost simultaneously, REDjet gained access to Jamaica, with minister Mike Henry granting approval following a series of meetings with regulatory authorities.
