The airline says it is well positioned to meet the travel demands of regional passengers and will continue to provide added value, while serving its customers with a reliable and flexible schedule.

Another regional airline, LIAT has also announced special arrangements to meet demand for extra flights as a result of the suspension of flights by REDjet.

Communications manager, Desmond Brown said in a release yesterday that “LIAT is committed to carrying all persons, including those affected by this unfortunate announcement, to Antigua, Barbados, Guyana, St Lucia and Trinidad”.

He said “all persons affected may contact the LIAT Call Centre to make bookings on LIAT by quoting their REDjet booking reference/confirmation number in order to be entitled to purchase a new ticket at a special fare in these unfortunate circumstances”.

On Friday, REDjet’s CEO Ian Burns announced that the carrier would suspend all its flights until further notice. REDjet blamed its current problems on government subsidy for other airlines in the region.
