I am gathering information regarding numerous topics on commercial aviation in Central America and the Caribbean. This information consists of a few items including:

- Ownership of airlines operating within Caribbean and Central America. ( This includes, which airlines are government owned, privately owned, and foreign owned).

- Which countries governments own the airlines entirely and their current financial situation.

- Any Environmental Regulations among the airlines that exists within the Caribbean and Central America.

- Any Bi-lateral agreements or similiar "Open Skies" policies that exist amongst airlines within this region

- Is there any privatization among these airlines?

- Finally, what are their international aviation regulation policies.

Thanks so much for your time and help, looking forward to working with all of you.

Hey- In Trinidad and Tobago, the Government owns the national carrier- Caribbean Airlines (BW) 100%.
In Jamaica the airline Air Jamaica is owned 100% by the Government. Caribbean Airlines of Trinidad, however, is currently in negotiations to acquire the Airline. The details of the acquisition are not entirely known as there may be a hybrid- transitional period.

For any more info: i suggest you post your requests on the following threads.

In Cuba Cubana is own by the Cuban Government, through the Instituto de Aviacion Civil de Cuba(Cuban Civil Aviation Institute), there two other smaller airlines one Gaviota owned by Group Gaviota which is the business arm of the Cuban Army Forces and the last one AeroCaribbean is owned by the Ministry of Tourism, so at the end all are owned by the Cuban government. Cubana is the oldest (established in 1929) and the largest with flights to Canada, Mexico, Central and South America and Europe. The main issue Cuban airlines have today is not been able to operate modern aircraft built in the US or with US components, due to the embargo from the American government , in order to keep operating Cubana has to either code share with other airlines, like TACA, COPA, Air Europa or buy Russian airplanes. Cuba is a dormant tiger in the Caribbean with an under-served domestic market of more than 11 million and long distances between one side of the island and the other (a flight from HAV to SCU takes at least 1.5 hour by plane and more than 12 hours by car). Also there is a comunity of Cuban expatriates living all over the world , with the biggest concentration in the US, especially Miami. Due to the embargo there are not scheduled flights between Cuba and the US, but is you go to MIA web site you can see at least 5 charters a day between MIA , HAV and others cities in Cuba like SCU, HOG, CMW. When both governments (Cuba and US) finally allow the scheduled air traffic between Cuba and the US, the market is going to be huge. There are several international airports in Cuba , HAV the main one, VRO the second, SCU, CYO, CCC, CMW, HOG, CFG, all with international service mainly from Canada and Europe. Cuba received more than 2 million of tourists on 2009 and have the biggest capacity of hotel beds in the entire Caribbean with more than 30,000 beds.
