CAL Adds Extra Flight for Carnival


At least 200 international flights will be operated throughout the Carnival season bringing more than 25,000 passengers into Trinidad and Tobago. This according to a release from Caribbean Airlines as they seek to add extra flights to accommodate the Carnival traffic. Key routes such as New York and Jamaica have also gained extra capacity.

Passengers arriving at the Piarco International Airport were treated to a vibrant Carnival welcome with a bit of culture and performance on Friday (Jan 29th). They were greeted with performances by Caribbean Airlines Invaders Steel Orchestra and Soca Artiste Kerwin Du Bois.

On hand were Caribbean Airlines Executive team, including Acting CEO, Tyrone Tang and the VP Commercial George Reeleder, who were on the ground to welcome visitors.

Joining them was the airline’s Hummingbird Mascots who also distributed tokens of appreciation to visitors as they exited the airport terminal.

Reeleder said: “Carnival is one of the busiest times for arrivals into Trinidad I and Tobago and we wanted our valued customers to experience first-hand the spirit of Carnival.
 “In addition to the entertainment this morning, Caribbean Airlines is paying tribute to several of our Caribbean icons, starting with the virtuoso Jit Samaroo. The pan legend is being featured on Caribbean Essence TV, our on board video presentation. Passengers will have an opportunity to gain more insight into the contribution of this brilliant musician”.
