CAL expands Trinidad, Guyana services to London, Toronto

Published: Thursday | September 27, 2012 Comments 0

Caribbean Airlines will start a third weekly non-stop service between Port of Spain, Trinidad and London, England on November 20.

The airline will also be launching a twice weekly non-stop service between Georgetown, Guyana and Toronto, Canada on December 1, adding to the daily flights now offered on that route.

The third non-stop service will leave Port of Spain on Tuesdays to return from London on Wednesdays. The current non-stop services leave Port of Spain on Thursdays and Saturdays, returning on Fridays and Sundays.

Caribbean Airlines’ acting chief executive officer Robert Corbie explained the rationale for introducing the additional London flights.

“We recognised that for many travellers, the mid-week slot would be very convenient and we decided to strategically deepen our presence on the route and offer a more flexible service on the preferred dates of travel,” a release from the airline quoted him as saying.

Chairman Rabindra Moonan underscored the policy behind the commitment. “We took the decision to launch the London route and have seen encouraging loads. Now, being able to offer our full service, on our own aircraft, will make the flights even more attractive. This additional mid-week service signals that we are very serious about meeting the need to connect with London and ... (continental) Europe and the Far East,” Moonan said.

The airline said the additional offering to Toronto demonstrates its commitment to Guyana’s travel and tourism industries.
Corbie indicated they will be able to expand the service with the acquisition of two Boeing 767-300ER wide-body aircraft.
