New Airline REDjet Lobbies for Flights to Jamaica and Trinidad and Tobago

By: Caribbean Journal Staff - May 16, 2011

New low-fare Caribbean air carrier REDjet is unable to fly to Jamaica and Trinidad and Tobago, and is asking politicians in the two countries to change their current policy. “REDjet is extremely disappointed for its passengers in Trinidad and Jamaica as the airline has yet to receive word from the two countries as to when operations can begin,” the airline said in a statement. “Passengers are still suffering from protectionism in the homes of two of the regional state-owned monopolies.” [Jamaica Observer]
