CO Expanding In Caribbean

Wed Jan 04, 2006 1:09 am

CO just announced that they are discontinuing their service to Barbados. Now I read that they are expanding their service to Roatan Honduras, from once per week to seven days a week. It's hard to believe that there is that much tourism in Roatan as compared to Barbados. I've been to Roatan several times and always wanted to keep it a secret, but I guess the word is out.It was always a SCUBA destination, but every time I went back I could see that it was becoming more popular with other tourists.

I have to wonder which destination is higher-yielding. I'd assume BGI is, as it's more of a "boutique destination" than a mass-market like a place like CUN, CZM, or RTB.

It's likely that the BGI customer base just never materialized to CO's satisfaction, despite what are likely far higher yields.
