FlyMontserrat introduces extra flights to mitigate WINAIR’s departure

Fly Montserrat

FlyMontserrat is moving to mitigate the impact of WINAIR’s confirmed decision that it will pull out of Montserrat at the end of December while attempting to meet its peak obligations with bookings in January. More recent information suggests that even now it will curtail its morning services to Montserrat.

According to reports  WINAIR says it sees the Montserrat route, which is subsidised by the government as  a loss-making venture and the aircraft currently being used here will be deployed on more profitable routes.  WINAIR has been providing scheduled air services form Montserrat since the John A Osborne airport opened in 2005.

FlyMontserrat, meanwhile has announced that it will increase its scheduled flights. Captain Nigel Harris says the airline is in a good position to take up the slack, reacting to WINAIR’s announcements of its plans to terminate scheduled services to the island.
