Caribbean Star airlines introduces service between Curaçao and Trinidad
Special introductory fares start at $69 each way for travel beginning December 1, 2006
St John’s, Antigua (October 26, 2006) – Caribbean Star Airlines announced today that it has reinstated plans to offer new service between Curaçao and Trinidad. The new service, which is on sale now for travel beginning December 1, 2006, will operate daily creating an attractive new air link between the two destinations.
Flight #771 departs Trinidad daily at 9:45am for arrival in Curaçao at 12:10pm. Flight #879 departs Curaçao daily at 12:45pm for arrival in Trinidad at 3:10pm.
To celebrate the launch of the new service, Caribbean Star is offering special introductory fares starting at just US$69 each way for flights between Trinidad and Curaçao. Special introductory fares are applicable to purchases made by December 1, 2006 for travel anytime after the December 1, 2006 launch date.
The announcement of the new Curaçao service comes on the heels of last week’s news that Caribbean Star has been successfully re-certified under new Civil Aviation Regulations passed in Antigua & Barbuda earlier this year. Caribbean Star had previously announced intentions to expand to Curaçao in May 2006, but the service was postponed before its scheduled start date in July 2006 pending the carrier’s successful re-certification.
“Curaçao has been at the centre of our expansion plans for quite some time,” said Skip Barnette, president and CEO of Caribbean Star and its sister airline Caribbean Sun. “I’m particularly pleased that the governments of Curaçao, Trinidad and Antigua showed their support by authorizing the new service so quickly.”
Caribbean Star operates a fleet of 11 aircraft – four brand-new, state-of-the-art Bombardier Q300s, plus seven Dash-8 300s – each with a 50-seat capacity. Friendly and attentive in-flight service is provided to all passengers, including a choice of soft drinks, juices and snacks. With the addition of the new Curaçao service, Caribbean Star now serves 13 Caribbean gateways with more than 635 flights per week.
