REDjet launches route from Barbados to Trinidad
- 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.
