CAL flying non-stop from Guyana and Barbados thrice weekly

These flights facilitate day trips, with the first flight departing from Guyana at 8am and returning non-stop out of Barbados at 7.30pm, the airline said in a press release.

Fares start at US$90 one way, inclusive of taxes.

Customers will also be entitled to benefits including frequent flyer miles and in-flight entertainment, the release said. Two complimentary bags of 50-lbs each will be allowed for the launch of this service. In addition, all students and senior citizens can get up to 10% discount.

The airline was able to commence this service after receiving approval from the Barbados Civil Aviation (BCA) to fly Inter-Caribbean routes out of Guyana to Barbados.

Earlier this year the carrier submitted three requests to the BCA seeking licences to operate services out of Barbados to two regional and South American destinations currently serviced by the airline, with the third being a proposed new route.

Currently Caribbean Airlines serves 18 markets in the Caribbean, South America and North America, including routes operated by the Air Jamaica brand.
