Wow, looking at some of the other regional threads, the Caribbean Aviation threads are certainly steamrolling these days at about one per week given all the new developments coming out almost on a daily basis. Thread 30 was number 3 in the most discussed topics!

Kudos for getting this one underway Caribbean484! Happy to see the Trini flag at the thread starter!! heheheh
Happy Belated Birthday BWIA 772.

Where is that photo from? the colours are unbelieveable...

Given CALs current schedule for their 6 a/c, can they fit in the POS-FLL flights? I would imagine that with the flights ex GEO they would need more metal, but the POS-FLL flights should work fine especially since they did a similar schedule on 5 a/c at the start and POS-BGI-GEO is going to a Dash8.

The LCC, is that the same Digicel/ Air One venture that was turned down by the GoJ?
What routes are they proposing ex BGI? Anything new and out of the oridnary, or the usual suspects?

Cheers

I'm like you, i'll believe it when I see the E190 actually touch down in POS. The a/c might leave PTY and could turn back if they change their minds, so I need proof of it reaching POS! hehe

Soooo...Sunday is POS-CCS (BW)
Monday is PTY-POS (CM)
Any other new routes to look out for? ...Exciting times!

PTY-GDL-PTY + PTY-POS-PTY are daytime flights, so immediate connections @ PTY aren't available.
Don't know if CM will pay the overnight accommodation in PTY for those travelling between GDL and POS.

Sincerely doubt they would do that. I don't know of any airline that does. Well I suppose it's more American Airlines for me. I mean everyone complains about AA, but it is sometimes an airline that cannot be avoided. Their schedules just work, and they fly everywhere... I think AA1818 would agree.

That is a picture of my hometown, Bimini, Bahamas. Only about 1600 residents. We get service to FLL, which is only 55 nm away with Gulfstream B1900's and Bimini Island Air Saab 340's, Caravans and C402s. Service to Nassau with Western Air Metros and service to FPO with Regional Air link Caravans. It is such a shame that Chalk's is no longer flying. Chalk's was the lifeline of the island for people to travel to the U.S. and Paradise Island on their amazing Grumman seaplanes. Thanks for the pic.

Barbados, Canada sign the Caribbean's first open skies deal


Canada's Minister of Transport, Infrastructure and Communities, Lawrence Cannon.
OTTAWA, Canada, March 6, 2008 - Barbados and Canada have reached an Open Skies-type air transport agreement to increase trade, tourism and investment between the two countries.

The deal which is the first of its kind in the Caribbean, allows carriers to provide scheduled air services as frequently as desired between cities in Canada and Barbados. The agreement also allows the airlines to react quickly to market conditions by more effectively adjusting prices and gives them greater flexibility in offering both passenger and cargo flights to and from third countries, including Caribbean Community (CARICOM) member states.

The provisions of the deal will be applied immediately and once ratified, the agreement will replace the 1985 one now in force.

Canada's Minister of Transport, Infrastructure and Communities, Lawrence Cannon announced the negotiated agreement which builds on Prime Minister Stephen Harper's July 2007 visit to the Caribbean region. During that trip, the North American leader outlined his country's re-engagement in the Americas as a critical, long-term international priority for the government.

"This is Canada's first Open Skies-type agreement in the Caribbean region and signals another step forward in providing greater flexibility for air services for passengers, businesses, air carriers and airports," said Mr Cannon. "I am pleased with the outcome of these negotiations, marking another bilateral air services agreement achieved under Canada's Blue Sky policy."

Minister of International Trade, David Emerson added that the new agreement will provide a stronger basis for competitive air services.

"We anticipate this will generate even more growth in trade, tourism and investment," he said.

Last year trade between Canada and CARICOM member states stood at CAD$2.2 billion (US$2.23 billion), a 20-per-cent increase from 2006. Canadian merchandise exports to CARICOM totalled CAD$725 million (US$736 million) and merchandise imports from CARICOM totalled CAD$1.47 billion (US$1.49 billion).

In 2006, 25,600 Canadians travelled to Barbados, while the CARICOM region received more than 251,100 Canadian tourists in 2006





Guyana government upgrading travel facilities


Cheddi Jagan International Airport in Guyana
GEORGETOWN, Guyana, March 6, 2008 - Two new airstrips are to be constructed in Guyana as the government continues plans to upgrade facilities for both domestic and international travel.

Funds for the developments at Wakenaam and Leguan Island will come from the GUY$108 million (US$530,204) which the Bharrat Jagdeo administration has budgeted for the air transport sector this year.

An additional GUY$29.7 million (US$145,806)has been budgeted for the maintenance of domestic aerodromes while approximately GUY$28 million (US$137,460)will be spent at the Cheddi Jagan International Airport Corporation (CJIAC) to repair and upgrade the airport's electrical system.

There are also plans to intensify airport security training during this year.
The government has already made some improvements to the country's main airport, including construction of the new arrival terminal, rehabilitation of the airport's sewerage system and construction of a sewage treatment plant and establishment of a new Identification Card (ID) system.

In addition, several pieces of important equipment to boost security such as baggage scanners and hand-held metal detectors were procured.

I do agree. Right price, right schedule, right destinations- fortunately, or unfortunately for some, it's usually AA!
For me it's getting from POS to most places...like STN or LHR (preferred to LGW) or South/ Central America (although now we have CM- PTY and BW- CCS). I am very excited for CM's PTY flight though. I think it has the potential for success with the right marketing and macro-economic conditions!

Imbert: No backing down on buying executive jet

Friday, March 7th 2008

Government yesterday sought to assuage public concern and outrage over the proposed acquisition of a private jet, claiming that it had made no financial contribution to the purchase as yet.

While Prime Minister Patrick Manning is perceived to be the driving force behind the proposal, it was Works and Transport Minister Colm Imbert who yesterday faced the barrage of questions on the jet at the post-Cabinet news conference. In answering them, Imbert mostly referred to correspondence from Caribbean Airlines (CAL) on the issue rather than speaking extemporaneously, which is his normal practice.

Imbert however failed to convince a sceptical media that Prime Minister Patrick Manning's test flight on a Bombardier Global XRS jet in Antigua in September 2006 was not the catalyst for the whole idea to acquire a similar aircraft.

Imbert said Caribbean Airlines knew that Government would have to undertake urgent, necessary and frequent travel. Quoting from the letter, Imbert stated: "Caribbean Airlines indicated that there would be a requirement for the Government to engage in significant travel to North America, Europe, Asia and Africa... Given the poor commercial connections to many of its international destinations, some of the Government's senior ministers including the Prime Minister, have been losing precious productive time...

The restrictive nature of commercial travel makes the executive jet travel proposal a more attractive alternative since it offers the flexibility and level of service demanded by Government and other executives. These circumstances have influenced the decision by Caribbean Airlines to recommend to the shareholder the formation of a subsidiary company to operate such a service".

Imbert said the Cabinet last Thursday agreed to support CAL in establishing the executive jet service at an estimated cost of US $63 million.

But Imbert stressed that it was not a done deal as government was insisting on the insertion of a standard anti-corruption clause in the contract. "If it is discovered that any person has benefited from this contract, it would be void and the seller would have to refund the money," he said, adding: "The Government is satisfied that that aspect of the contract is in the best interest of Trinidad and Tobago". If the seller of the jet is unwilling to comply, the deal would not go through, he said.

Asked whether a feasibility study was done, Imbert replied, quoting from the CAL letter: " Our preliminary analysis assumes 600 flight hours per year which would be guaranteed by the Government and a variable charter rate per hour which would provide Caribbean Airlines with an annualised margin of 10 per cent".

Reminded that while Government was fast-tracking a solution to save time wasted in air travel, people were wasting productive time on land because the transportation problems have not been solved, Imbert said the water taxi could not be established without vehicles. He explained that Government was doing a "worldwide search" for ferries for this service. "It is not a simple matter. You cannot equate these two things.

The only reason why this (jet) transaction occurred is because an aircraft became available. In the normal scheme of the things if the Government had put in an order they would not have received this aircraft until 2011 or 2012. It is just that a particular aircraft has become available at this particular point in time. You are comparing apples and oranges," he said.

Imbert said the Cabinet would determine which government ministers/delegations would use the jet. "It would not be done in a whimsical way," he assured.


Panday questions purchase of jet.......


...Panday wants details on $m buy

Friday, March 7th 2008


Opposition Leader Basdeo Panday wants the Government to make a comprehensive statement on the details of the purchase of an executive jet by State-owned Caribbean Airlines (CAL) at today's Parliament sitting.

That statement must include a breakdown of the cost of the jet to taxpayers through government's commitment to paying for 600 flight hours per year and the terms of the government funding, including whether the capital given to CAL is to be repaid and over what period.

"This matter involves the expenditure of well over $315 million of public funds. It is shrouded in controversy and scandal. While some statements have been made by Caribbean Airlines and Government officials, they are not providing proper, relevant information," said Panday.

Panday said that most of the information available to the public has come from the media where there are conflicting reports attributed to unnamed sources concerning Cabinet's involvement in this transaction, the timeline of decision-making, the true acquisition and operation and maintenance cost for the aircraft.

"There is conflict of interest between the Government and the suppliers of the aircraft. If citizens are to foot this bill then they must know what the true overall cost to taxpayers would be now that Government has decided to reserve 600 flight hours per year to ensure that CAL does not appear to realise a loss because of this venture," he said.

Panday added that Government is accountable to the people through the Parliament and in the interest of accountability, transparency and responsible governance, and respect for the population, the Government has a duty to come to the Parliament and make a comprehensive statement that addresses the serious and real concerns of the citizens over the expenditure of over $315 million.

Of all people to question aviation related spending is the biggest crook of them all- Mr Panday!

He is in opposition to oppose and one continues to be amazed by the number of (what must be assumed to be tolerable people) that continue to support him. Let's not forget that there would be enough money to buy 10 jets had it not been for all the 'backpay' payments on the airport!

The purchase of the private jet, in no doubt will benefit the airline. And while I believe the costs are perhaps going to be more expensive for Gov't travel compared with say NetJets in the USA, Government cannot simply choose the cheaper option since it has a committment to CAL as well. It needs to weigh up the options properly, and I personally think they have done the right thing. Meet the needs of the Gov't and assist the National Carrier.

Imbert: No backing down on buying executive jet

Friday, March 7th 2008

Not quoting your entire thread, but if travel is in the works for any or our Carib Mins of State using private a/c is a sign of growing up for us, may not have to buy the a/c out-right but sign agreements to have one availabe when requested. I cannot speak for other airlins but I can speak from personal experience within and outside of UP where fare paying pax are inconvenienced because a Min travelling on a free ticket needed a/c held or rescheduled for Govt. business, oft time it may not have been but no one really investigates such things.

Its a reason why for many years our local airlines could not offer a competitive product, how do you tell a US tourist travelling with his family to / from the islands that he will be late or miss a connection because a govt. min is trapped in traffic or has not left his office yet? We don't, we lie and say that the a/c has a problem, crew late, customs etc. but something to make the airline look bad, which ultimately causes the customer base to loose confidence in your product. We need to look more to our other ministers, of religion that is, they fly around on their private jets and the congregation sings the praises.

Plans for a new low cost Caribbean airline put on hold for now. See article below:
From www.360caribbean.com

Irish businessmen put brakes on Caribbean airline


The original venture being pushed by the group which included Digicel vice-president Leslie Buckley (pictured above), was dubbed the ''Ryanair of the Caribbean'' and was to be launched in May, covering the Caribbean as well as flights linking the region to the US and Latin America.
DUBLIN, Ireland, March 7, 2008 - An Ireland-based newspaper is reporting that failure to gain a license and the high cost of fuel have prompted a group of businessmen in that country to ground plans to launch a new Caribbean airline this year.

According to the Irish Independent, the original venture being pushed by Airone Ventures which includes Digicel vice-president Leslie Buckley, was dubbed the 'Ryanair of the Caribbean' and was to be launched in May, covering the Caribbean as well as flights linking the region to the US and Latin America.

It added that the Jamaica government had refused to issue a license to the company. In its business plan, the company had indicated that without a commitment from Jamaica for designation of Airone as a national carrier, it would have to set up in either Trinidad or Barbados. However, the article indicated that Airone's alternative plan for Barbados had also been put on hold.

The article quoted informed sources as saying the company is "continuing to assess the situation" in relation to future plans for Airone.

At the time of the launch last year, the company confirmed it was positioning itself as a low-cost carrier. Airone Ventures was promising fares as low as 80 per cent below current charges available from competitors flying to Jamaica and other Caribbean destinations.

"We are here to establish a headquarters and a home from which we will grow to over 25 planes spread over seven bases within the Caribbean and the Americas," the company had said in its business plan as it sought to get permission to make Jamaica the hub for the Caribbean airline.

Airone had asked Jamaica's Civil Aviation Authority for permission to operate as many as 18 flights per week from gateways in Kingston and Montego Bay into Fort Lauderdale and New York in the US.

The company said it had successfully raised US$30 million so far from private investors to begin its operations.

I agree for sure. Love the big titles on the Dash-8.

Sorry, but I think the livery on the Dash 8 looks hideous and super-cheap. Hopefully, the completed scheme with the tail colours can save it. Just my opinion....

Anyway, check THIS article on the Private Jet issue:

Quote:
Imbert said there were no inconsistencies between statements made by him and those made by CAL chairman Arthur Lok Jack. He also said that there was no jet in Antigua "covered up in a hangar, waiting for the dust to settle", as was being claimed by the Opposition.

Anyone heard anything such as this before??  confused
