KINGSTON, Jamaica — Caribbean Airlines (CAL) today officially began their non-stop service from Kingston, Jamaica to Barbados.

The service will operate twice weekly, every Monday and Friday, departing Kingston at 2:50 pm and arriving in Barbados at 6:25 pm.

Speaking at the launch, Trudy Chin, Acting General Manager Caribbean Airlines, Jamaica said the new non-stop service is being launched in direct response to feedback from customers and stakeholders.

“The Caribbean Airlines brand story is the Caribbean identity. This is the prism through which we view our strategy and our customer engagement. And even as we believe in the Caribbean identity, the idea that we have a shared history and a common future we must deliver reliable and convenient service that connects us all and open opportunities,” she said.

Chin said with the 300 additional seats on this route, the airline expects an exponential growth in traffic between the two nations and will be a win for both.

Today's inaugural flight departed the Norman Manley International Airport in Kingston at 2:50 pm.
