InterCaribbean Airways launches flights from Barbados to Jamaica

Bridgetown, Feb 10 (Prensa Latina) Air connectivity between Jamaica and Barbados has strengthened with the launch of direct flights by InterCaribbean Airways.

This additional route is a “wonderful spirit of partnership” that will facilitate connectivity with the region, Barbadian Minister of Foreign Affairs and Foreign Trade Kerrie Symmonds said in statements quoted by the Caribbean Media Corporation.

Symmonds and officials from the Barbados Tourism Marketing Inc. (BTMI) attended the traditional watercannon ceremony that welcomed the maiden flight at the Grantley Adams International Airport, and thanked Lyndon Gardiner, the founder and chairman of InterCaribbean Airways.

Symmonds described the timing as excellent, as his country will host a series of significant events this year, including the Global Supply Chain Forum of the United Nations Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD), scheduled for May.

According to BTMI’s interim CEO Craig Hinds, the new route will connect two Caribbean nations, strengthen and deepen the bonds of friendship and cooperation between the two States, and open up opportunities for growth in tourism, culture, sports, and business.

According to the company, the CRJ700 jet will operate direct flights to Kingston on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays, with return flights on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays.
