Having looked at the single ATR72-600 they have in operation over the past few weeks it seems to predominantly fly NAS-MHH-PBI-MHH-NAS-MHH-NAS-XXX-NAS
The "XXX" that I've seen recently have been GGT, MIA, RSD and FPO.
In there this past week the aircraft has also done NAS-RSD-GGT-RSD-NAS.

For easy reference:
MHH: Marsh Harbour
PBI: West Palm Beach, FL
GGT: Great Exuma Is.
RSD: Rock Sound

Hope that's the info you were looking for.

Any word on Insel? Do they still plan to begin restoring some routes for the busy summer season? Like MIA and PBM at a minimum.

Not looking good for Insel as the longer they are off the more entrenched the competition becomes. I think that we can assume that AA now owns MIA CUR. There will however be hardships for Haitians and Dominicans traveling to PBM as the best way was via CUR. Its the back door for those attempting to illegally enter Fr. Guyana.

Cool - look forward to it being official. I've figured it was just a matter of time - BON was one of the last prominent Caribbean/Latin America markets served by competitors but conspicuously not by AA. I'd imagine a few weekly A319 or E175s.

So SVD will finally get scheduled jet service, though not from a company that most might have projected to be the first. AC will operate winter seasonal service out of YYZ with an A319. One can ponder as to how much business they will generate, given that SVG's leisure product is upmarket, focused on the small Grenadine islands like Canouan and Union. AC being more mass market oriented and driven by package tours.

As of now BW offers 2x weekly easy connections out of JFK, via POS using its ATRs. The fastest way to travel between these points, and removing the need for to go though immigration at BGI/POS and to change airlines.

We will have to see of and when B6 will start nonstop from JFK to SVD. BW has hinted that they have no intention in doing so beyond an occasional flag stop.

The only Air Guyana I am aware of is the one affiliated with Fly Jam. it plans to start charters using OJ planes to HAV and JFK from GEO. They were hoping to get a 738 to handle KIN JFK as well as new flights to FLL from KIN.

The other A340 dream has already been discredited as some time ago the Guyana gov't denied knowing anything about them. If they are using Air Guyana as their name, that name has already been taken. GEO isn't a big market and really cannot absorb every dreamer that thinks that they can fly. As is there are now 4 airlines flying in between GEO and JFK. Reports are that up to 40% of the travel into GEO is on the JFK route.

Runway extension and terminal works have begun at GEO. I think JB could make a FLL-SVD service once a week with an E190 or AA with the E175. In other news an Iberia A330 diverted to BGI yesterday due to a medical emergency.

Attention BGI spotters:

A Classic DC-3 (With PT6 turboprop engines. Basler BT-67 conversion) N300MF bought by Missionary Flights International is on ferry flight from South Africa to Florida.

Picture of the DC-3 https://www.flickr.com/photos/leomuse747/33818051614/in/dateposted-public/

Took off this morning from Fortaleza airport and is heading to Barbados.
Pics and videos of the visit: Instagram @tmafortaleza or facebook @tmafor
I wonder when people will understand:
Embraer 190 or simply E190, not ERJ-190. E-Jets are NOT ERJs!
Boeing 747-8, not Boeing 747-800. Same goes for 787.
Airbus A320, not Airbus 320.
Airbii does not exist.

Official: Sunwing Airlines will start flying to Bonaire from Toronto in mid-December 2017. The flights will be operated once weekly on Sundays with the Boeing 737-800's.

Sunwing Airlines haven't made an announcement yet, so this has so far only been picked up by local media.

A short article from local media.

The American Airlines announcement has been pushed back while all partners involved are finalizing the negotiations.

That AC flight would also cater in great part to VFR traffic. Years ago when I worked in GND, charter flights to YYZ usually carried a considerable amount of Vincentians.

Except that the VFR market goes dead after Xmas. Also seats on Rouge for people not on their packages are hard to get and very expensive on these routes where the frequency is low, so not working for most of the VFR. I know for SKB even Canada originating passengers often have to fly via the US, even though AC Rouge is available during the winter. The villa crowd aren't in packages, and I suspect that this accounts for most of the SVG leisure traffic.

But the flights are seasonal, so they won't have to worry about off season, but yes around Xmas, those flight will be full. I don't think folks holidaying in the Grenadines are Rouge's typical passengers as you say. It's worth mentioning that Rouge comes to GND once or twice a week as well, and a significant percentage of the passengers are VFR, especially with their sometimes great last minute fares. Couple weeks ago, my brother came down here for around 200US (one way), purchasing his ticket two days before travel.

Rouge into GND is a year round operation so they would have to be more VFR friendly. After all the Canadian leisure market to the Eastern Caribbean is very winter centric, so it will be the VFR market which would keep it flying the rest of the year.

Sure the VFR market into SVD will use it but I don't know that this will be enough for the mid Jan to Easter period when VFR traffic slumps. Rouge into GND can combine the VFR and the leisure markets as the type of tourists flying in are your more conventional package types and they are staying in GND.

Problem with SVD is that the tourists aren't staying on that island but are transferring to Canouan, Union, or Bequia. The question will be how many will fly via SVD instead of BGI where connectivity is better and most likely so will the fares.

I cannot speak for Canada but I know that the Grenadian population in the NYC area is considerably bigger than the Vincentian, in fact its probably as big or bigger than the Bajan.

I would be more confident of AA from MIA or B6 from JFK as the US-SVD market (VFR and travel by residents of SVG) is larger.

I think Air Canada will be able to pull off SVD its for the winter season and once a week with an A319. Not sure if it has been mentioned but Delta will be pulling out of BGI for the second or third time now.

Some of Delta's caribbean routes almost seem random :D . I live in GND and I know they have seasonal ATL and JFK flights, but that's about all I know.

Not sure why DL cannot make ATL BGI work and apparently can make ATL GND succeed. Though I am not surprised at this when they discontinued their JFK BGI service. Maybe BGI needs higher frequencies to succeed, with a carrier running only a few weekly flights being not cost effective. This possibly matters less in smaller destinations like SKB and GND.

Delta's fares in comparison to JB or AA were not competitive in addition, they did very little marketing in BGI. JB and AA have have brand recognition in BGI DL needed that along with the fares to compete one can connect through AA via MIA to most places in the US.

I thought I'd share my post in the Aviation Photography Forum here with you. I would like to have tips on plane spotting in PTP should I go there in the future. Yoni, I remember you mentioned an airport hotel to be built there but any plane spotting tip is welcome of course. See my post here:

It might be awaiting financial permission from the Cuban authorities. Not selling means that if there is a delay in beginning the service no passengers are inconvenienced. I doubt its a charter as they wouldn't have inflight menus for this flight. It looks like it will be an early morning departure as the outbound has breakfast service.

Not sure who is going to be on this flight. I know loads of Cubans go to GEO to shop. Not sure if T&T is an option for them. Generally students from the Eastern Caribbean are the biggest outbound market (to Cuba) and they probably wouldn't be ready until July. Ditto the summer vacation crowd.

You're right baje427. Unfortunately the thread isn't as active as it used to be due to a variety of reasons I'm guessing. A friend of mine has heard on the radio here in Curacao that Sunrise Airways of Haiti wants to set up it's base here in Curacao. Does anyone have more information on this? I've heard they want to fly to Curacao too but I haven't heard anything about this for quite some time. They have received their first A320 which I think is an A320 of Dominican Wings if I'm not mistaken. If anyone here know more about the plans of Sunrise Airways going to Curacao please let me know.

They have received their first A320 which I think is an A320 of Dominican Wings if I'm not mistaken. If anyone here know more about the plans of Sunrise Airways going to Curacao please let me know.

A388

Any word on the Insel Air saga? I saw on another thread that Insel Air Aruba filed for bankruptcy are the MD80's parked up in Curacao?

Frontier announced service from PHL and MCO to SJU starting June. The MCO flight seems to be timed decently for connections. I'm a little surprised they didn't also add MCO-STT.


There is a huge PRican population in the MCO area, in fact the 2nd largest behind the NY area. Does F9 do STT? I would think PHL STT would make more sense if they have those plans. They seem to be building a hub there.
Frontier doesn't serve STT, but STT-Florida is a large market, no one currently flies MCO-STT, and they could offer one stop connections to other STT heavy markets that they already serve from MCO


I think WN could be a candidate for this route as well. They can probably do well with people and cargo

You're right baje427. Unfortunately the thread isn't as active as it used to be due to a variety of reasons I'm guessing.

Just to inform: their first A320 (at least first one in full colors) have been just delivered. It's a 28 year old machine, registered ZS-GAR (at the moment).
Delivery flight: JNB-ABJ-FOR-PAP.

I wonder when people will understand:
Embraer 190 or simply E190, not ERJ-190. E-Jets are NOT ERJs!
Boeing 747-8, not Boeing 747-800. Same goes for 787.
Airbus A320, not Airbus 320.
Airbii does not exist.

Agreed. They would be an even better option from a connections point of view

Air Antilles Express is taking bookings for their new SXM-STX-STT-SXM 3x weekly route in early July. Expect the WinAir website to soon allow for ticket sales for connections to SKB, NEV, ANU, SBH, EUX, and SAB.

These flights don't integrate well with WMs schedules to ANU. WMs flight from ANU arrives too late to connect in SXM. Apparently Seaborne will be starting flights to ANU and these will connect to the USVI.

These flights are oriented mostly towards local SXM-USVI travel. Even with SKB there is too much waiting around, and in fact the STT SXM connects better with a LI flight than with WM into SKB.
