Well guys, welcome to the 80th instalment of Caribbean Aviation. This thread is dedicated to the Spice Isle; none other than Grenada, birthplace of Captaink.


Grenada is an island country and sovereign state consisting of the island of Grenada and six smaller islands at the southern end of the Grenadines in the southeastern Caribbean Sea. Grenada is located northwest of Trinidad and Tobago, northeast of Venezuela, and southwest of Saint Vincent and the Grenadines.



Grenada is called The Spice Isle because it is a leading producer of several different spices. Cinnamon, cloves, ginger, mace, allspice, orange/citrus peels, wild coffee used by the locals, and especially nutmeg, providing 20% of the world supply, are all important exports. The nutmeg on the nation's flag represents the economic crop of Grenada; the nation is the world’s second largest producer of nutmeg (after Indonesia).


Economic progress in fiscal reforms and prudent management have boosted annual growth to 5%–6% in 1998–99; the increase in economic activity has been led by construction and trade. Tourist facilities are being expanded; tourism is the leading foreign exchange earner. Grenada shares a common central bank and a common currency (the East Caribbean dollar) with seven other members of the Organisation of Eastern Caribbean States (OECS)[12]

Maurice Bishop International Airport

The "oildown" is considered to be the national dish. The phrase "oil-down" refers to a dish cooked in coconut milk until all the milk is absorbed, leaving a bit of coconut oil in the bottom of the pot. Early recipes call for a mixture of salted pigtail, pigs feet (trotters), salt beef and chicken, dumplings made from flour, provision: breadfruit, green banana, yam and potatoes. Callaloo leaves are some times used to retain the steam and for extra flavour.

When you say "original airport", I guess you are talking about Point Salines?/ If so, it was renamed to Maurice Bishop Intl.

Its still there - but not used for commercial flights. Called Pearl Airport, and still has sitting on it derelict old Cuban and Soviet planes after the US invaded in the early 80s to kick them out. Here's an aerial photo:

Yep Pearls Airport isn't used anymore. As mentioned there are two old Soviet birds sitting there. I found them quite fascinating as a child..

The runway is used for drag racing more than anything else right now. Some years ago there was some talk about setting up FBO operations there, due to planned development in the northern part of the island. That didn't seem to happen though. What's even for an FBO Pearls is a challenging airport to fly into, because of the need to land towards the sea, i.e. you have fly over the mountains...

BTW, GIanny took a really sharp pic there. You can just make the tail of the Condor 763 there.

She seems to be less expansionist/regionalist in her views and opposition to the former PM. However, it is still too early to really know what will happen.

Her priorities will be to deal with crime and the "inadequate" physical and social infrastructure....inadequate given that Trinidad is probably the second wealthiest independent Caribbean nation after The Bahamas...and so people will have higher expectations than say Dominicans (from Dominica) or Guyanese.

Expect her to be less interested in buying LIAT as it has no strategic benefits from Trinidad, and she will have limited patience if CAL's Jamaica routes dont become self sustaining in a short period. She will have a contractual obligation to continue the fuel subsidy for CAL, despite any pre election rhetoric.

She has a coalition govt so will be very domestic focused to keep it together and to prove herself. None of Manning's soaring rhetoric (and unfilled promises) of mega projects for other Caribbean islands.

As far as general policy is concerned, I expect the new regime to be more efficient and better executors. As for Caribbean Airlines policy, the new regime will likely allow it to continue to operate as per status quo. They will likely take the opportunity to reveal any inefficiencies created by the old administration, however, I know from insiders that the idea of having our own airline sits very well with Kamla and the inner circle. I would expect that any further growth or changes will have to be undertaken by the airline (financially independent of the Government) which means a less likely 737 replacement and a more likely Dash8 replacement given the amount of CapEx involved with replacing the jets.

At the end of it, it remains to be seen just what she has in store for Caribbean Airlines. Bear in mind that it sits favourably with the general public and it is a Manning/ PNM legacy that people will cry foul if she interferred too much. If she knows what's good for her she will ensure that full accounts are published and made publicly available, and she will also ensure that BW shows profits and that these profits are then directly spend on some social programme. She can then say that under her Gov't BW was profitable, run independently, efficicent and contributed to the economy, and she made sure it was done in a transparent nature and every cent was accounted for- which is one of the main things she ran for office on- accountability and transparency.

While she will be more domestic focussed (he ego has not expanded to the size of Mannings yet and so it can still fit in Trinidad air space), she will most definitely give attention to BGI, ANU, GND and KIN as their economies are crucial to T&T's own upswing. We may grow at 2.0% GDP this year, but to return to the 6-7.0% GDP growth rates we will need the other islands to recover and for trade to return to 2006 to 2008 levels.

From what I have understood, Caribbean Airlines will be the same mandate, stair away from any political interferance and the board will most likely stay the same. Aviation policy in Trinidad rearly changes in Trinidad because a lack of understanding of the industry. Fuel hedge will remain the same since the airline, like any entity in Trinidad is oblige to the same gas program for the years went by.
That being said she has no bearing in any business decisions made by the airline in the future or her government that includes its Jamaican operations, which is up to the board and management to determine viability. Both the oposition and Governement are pleased the airline has been run well for the last 3 years and will continue to do so.
Any inteferance in the airline will not be taken likely by the public as many are/were tired of BWIA and its looses with political inteferance from all Governments.

The Jamaican hub will continue for the long term, and the a/c replacements will be manadated as the airline's fleet is at its mature age. She will not be a huge reagionalist but will have to work with the region as trade and GDP growth depends on everyone's economy in CariCOM.

Wow, I didn't know Grenada was the second largest producer of nutmeg, that's a very nice achievement!!! Curacao has the world famous Curacao liqour (Blue Curacao, etc...). There are several smaller Caribbean islands with great achievements, that makes me proud!!!

In other words, the 737 replacement will be completed soon or is this order in danger with the new politicians?

From what I have been told, the airline is going to replace its fleet whether a new regime would have been in or not, because of the maturing age of the a/cs and cycles they build up making maintenance expenses go up, more so the Dash8s running Tobago are high cycled daily flights at no returns, loses. The money from profitable operations else where are used to fund this.
The original 6 737s leases are up at the end of this year while SLU and PBM will be up in 2011 and 2012 respectively, they will be returned to their owners in that time. The original 6 737s also have high cycles from their operations from BWIA as said operating throughout the Caribbean.
That being said the airline has to move forward with its fleet replacement to standardize its fleet for the next 10 years in Trinidad and Jamaica to bring costs down and to expand. These aircrafts will not be bought from the a/c manufacturers rather rom a Leasing and Financing company.
Caribbean Airlines does not own any of the 738s but they do own 2 Dash8s while the other 3 are leased.

It will be interesting to see who they chose to go with, either Airbus or stay with Boeing, don't be surprise if Airbus wins this round as they want to make sure their a/c are kept flying.

I do hope they split the order with either types going narrow body to one and wide body to the other.

From an aviation enthusiast's and spotter's point of view, that would be great but from a 'running a smaller airline' point of view, not going to happen (unfortunately).

The head of the Jamaica Hotel and Tourist Association says there has been some cancellations (expected) but nothing major.

In my opinion, just like Usain Bolts wonderous feats in Beijing did not lead to weekly 747s from China, neither will this upsurge in violence, in what was already a violent city that most tourists avoid. The VFR traffic will if anything be more eager to visit KIN to check that their folks are ok, so maybe more ticket sales for JM/BW.

Yep, from my reading as well, there certainly was not anything with regards to aviation. Hopefully, the reason for nothing on aviation is that everything seems to be working well. I just hope this is the reason.

I am not surprised that the new government of Trinidad and Tobago will leave BW as is, the simple fact is that BW is perhaps the most effective project undertaken by this last PNM government. I do disagree that money gained from BW should be reinvested into government programs! BW is to young and should be looking to increase it's retained earnings to fund future growth - specifically enhancement of maintenance facilities, capital expenditure for reservation systems, fleet expansion etc. Further more BW's main contribution to the POS economy in the medium term should not be through direct profits but from increased economic activity attributed to increase airlift! Long term the government of Trinidad and Tobago should be looking at getting out of the airline business! Ideally let us assume that BW and LI do merger one would hope that collectively the respective governments end up owning 20% (which IMHO is generous) after the airline is privatized!

As for the fleet if the leases are up BW may as well take the opportunity to renew the narrow body fleet!

Fleet break down by lessor for BW/JM is as follows:

ILFC 6 aircraft - 1 A320 (JAF) 5 738 (ANU GEO KIN SLU TAB)
GECAS 4 aircraft - 4 A320 ( JMF JMG JMJ JMH)
Aercap 3 aircraft - 1 A320 (JAI) 2 738 (BGI POS)
CIT 2 aircraft - 1 A320 (JMI) 1 738 (PBM)
Airventure 1 aircraft - 1 A319 (JAD)

I like you thought the same so I checked Aercap and under their customers in the Americas Caribbean Airlines and Air Jamaica are listed. It is quite possible that ILFC may have sold some of its portfolio of aircraft to Aercap ( my searches have not shed any light on this so it is a mere speculation as to how 9Y BGI and 9Y POS ended up being owned by Aercap.)
