Caribbean Airlines Limited (CAL) has relocated its ticket office and administrative and operations teams from Trafalgar Road in New Kingston and the Norman Manley International Airport (NMIA) to one location in Liguanea.

The airline has leased offices at 128 Hope Road in Liguanea, which will now house 80 staff in 16,000 square feet of space. The owner of the property was not disclosed.

CAL's Jamaican office provides systemwide support to customers from "all our destinations regionally and in North America, South America and Europe", the Trinidad-based airline said via email. Jamaica owns 16 per cent of CAL in partnership with the Trinidadian government.

"This is a perfect time for us to relocate. The new offices will enable us to serve our guests more effectively and efficiently by bringing our people together under one roof," said CAL general manager Clive Forbes in a company release.

The New Kingston property that formerly housed the ticket offices had also been leased, the company said on Tuesday. Ticketing will continue to be done at both the new office in Liguanea as well as the airports.
