LIAT airbridge arrangement to cost $3.9 million

The Finance Minister says the wet lease between Caribbean Airlines and LIAT will cost nearly $3.9 million.

Speaking in the Parliament this morning, the government was asked by the Opposition about the cost of this arrangement which is meant to help transport passengers to and from Tobago in light of the sea bridge suspension.

The lease ends on April 30th.

Minister Imbert said LIAT will accommodate 544 passengers in March and 680 in April.

 

LIAT now helping CAL with flights on airbridge

LIAT, The Caribbean Airline, has announced that it has successfully concluded a commercial agreement with Caribbean Airlines to operate flights on the Trinidad and Tobago air bridge.

The airline says it will operate an ATR 72 aircraft to provide assistance in moving passengers on the air bridge.

A statement on its Facebook page says the agreement between the airlines is as a result of the challenges on the passenger sea bridge between the islands and the increase in capacity needed by Caribbean Airlines which has been requested by the Government of Trinidad and Tobago.

CAL clears backlog of passengers on airbridge

Caribbean Airlines says all passengers booked for travel yesterday, 28 December, on the domestic air bridge were transported, with the airline’s operations returning to normal by late evening.

The airline says that with the support of its Boeing 737 jet fleet, it transported all passengers holding confirmed tickets for travel, as well as 288 stand-by passengers for travel to/from Trinidad and Tobago. 

For today, 29 December, Caribbean Airlines has a seat capacity of 4,432 on the domestic air bridge.

CAL adds 660 more seats on airbridge than were previously booked

Caribbean Airlines says the presence of its 737 fleet to support the domestic airbridge, now means there is increased capacity of 660 above what was scheduled for today.

The airline issued a second statement today saying that while the number of seats scheduled on the airbridge for 28 December total 2448, the airline increased capacity to 3108 to minimise inconvenience to its customers.

It says the airline’s 737 fleet is being used to support its domestic operations as required, and the ATR fleet is expected to be fully restored and in service within 24 hours.
