Trinidad and Tobago-owned Caribbean Airlines has begun twice-weekly service to the new Argyle International Airport in St Vincent and the Grenadines. The flights, which started on April 14, operate every Friday and Sunday. The carrier is one of the first airlines to offer non-stop flights to the new airport, which serves as an international gateway to the Grenadine islands.
“Customers will also benefit from seamless connections between St. Vincent and the Grenadines and Caribbean Airlines’ other international and regional destinations,” said Capt. Jagmohan Singh, Caribbean Airlines’ chief executive officer.
“We are excited about this launch of our 19th destination. Caribbean Airlines is in the business of connecting people, and the St. Vincent service will develop closer links for commerce throughout the region,” said Singh. “Our teams welcome this addition to our network and the opportunity to give our valued customers more regional travel options and seamless international travel connections between the Caribbean and North America.”
Singh said 2017 is a special year for Caribbean Airlines, as the company celebrates its 10th anniversary of providing “consistent and reliable service to travellers. Our valued customers can look forward to more exciting developments and new destinations as the year progresses.”
