An official ceremony for the inaugural flight of Caribbean airlines to Dominica was held over the weekend. Caribbean Airlines represent Government’s drive to improve air access into the country. The airlines will provide flights to Dominica on Saturdays and Sundays.
Minister for Tourism, International Transport and Maritime Initiatives, Honourable Denise Charles says that Caribbean Airlines will assist in improving access to Dominica.
“I also want to commend our Prime Minister for his unwavering commitment to expanding air service into Dominica,” the Minister stated.
Minister Charles is grateful for the opportunities provided with this new connection.
“It has really brought ease to travelling for our people and it also makes it easier for visitors to come to our island so I’m really pleased about that and elated,” Minister Charles added.
Captain for Caribbean Airlines, Mr. Francis Harris, a Dominican, is proud to provide service to Dominica.
“This day has been long in coming and we are truly delighted that it is finally here. Caribbean Airlines has the largest network in the region and we continue to improve connectivity. Our Eastern Caribbean expansion now links Barbados and Dominica, as well as St. Lucia, St. Vincent, Grenada, Antigua and Jamaica. In the coming weeks and months, you will hear and see more islands connected as well close the distance between and among the Caribbean,”
Mr. Harris says flights will increase after progress is made from weekend flights.
