WESTERN BUREAU:

Caribbean Airlines has announced an extra flight between the Norman Manley airport in Kingston and Port of Spain, Trinidad to accommodate Jamaican cricket fans who wish to attend the Jamaica Tallawahs match in Trinidad on Friday.




The airline made the announcement this morning.



The flight departs Kingston at 8 p.m. on Wednesday arriving in Trinidad at 11:59 p.m.



The return flight will be on Sunday, August 25, departing Trinidad at 6 a.m., arriving Kingston at 7:45 a.m.



"We are supporting the CPL (Caribbean Premier League 2020) in making the flight available for persons who would like to support the Tallawahs," said Clive Forbes general manager, CAL Jamaica.



"We are also aware that there is demand for travel to Port of Spain outside of cricket fans and we expect those persons to be on the flight too," he said.



The Jamaica Tallawahs players leaves the country today for Port-of-Spain, where they will participate in the semi-finals of the Limacol CPL at Queen's Park Oval on Friday.



The Tallawahs, who overcame the challenge of a feisty Trinidad and Tobago Red Steel in their last preliminary game at Sabina Park on Sunday, are down to face the Barbados Tridents in the semi-finals and captain Chris Gayle says the team is optimistic about a win.
