During the launch celebrations for WestJet’s latest Caribbean route from Toronto Pearson, Robert Palmer, the airline’s PR Manager, presented a commemorative model aircraft to Trinidad and Tobago delegates. The island state celebrates its 50th anniversary of independence, so carnival mood is guaranteed.
- WestJet, which recently added three Caribbean destinations to its Toronto Pearson (YYZ) network, launched yet another winter sun route on 16 November. Daily flights on the 4,100-kilometre route from Canada’s largest city to Port of Spain (POS) will operate seasonally until 27 April and be operated using 737-700s. Peter Tong, WestJet’s Director of Schedule and Network Planning, said: “We’re very pleased to offer daily service to Trinidad and Tobago, especially as the islands celebrate the 50th anniversary of their independence.” Competition on the route comes from Caribbean Airlines’ 12 weekly flights.
