REDjet launches route from Barbados to Trinidad

Upon arrival at Port of Spain’s Piarco International Airport in Trinidad, representatives from the Barbados Tourism Authority, Ministry of Tourism, shareholders and the REDjet family were met by the management of the airport authority. Passengers on the return flight to Barbados were given a warm welcome courtesy of the Barbados Tourism Authority. In keeping with the festive Crop Over season, an indigenous Barbadian Tuk Band and costumed ladies posed with airline CEO and chairman Ian Burns and a Trinidadian passenger at the arrivals hall.

  • REDjet, the Caribbean start-up low-cost airline that has had regulatory problems in gaining access to other markets than its first, on 1 August launched its second route. From its Bridgetown (BGI) base in Barbados, the airline now flies four times weekly to Port of Spain (POS), the capital of Trinidad & Tobago, using its 149-seat MD82 aircraft. Competition comes from Caribbean Airlines’ 28 and LIAT’s 14 weekly flights. Officially, the route launches on 8 August, but the airline has scheduled a number of flights before this date due to the increased demand caused by the Crop Over festival and Rihanna’s Loud concert.
