CARIBBEAN AIRLINES CARGO ANNOUNCES THIRD FREIGHTER SERVICE
Hard on the heels of the launch of new passenger flights to South Florida, Caribbean Airlines has now further augmented service to that market with the addition of a new ?third? cargo service to Trinidad from Miami – the air cargo hub of the region. This is in direct response to an increased demand for cargo airlift between Trinidad and the United States.
With the addition of this service, Caribbean Airlines Cargo now operates three services per week with leased wide bodied air-freighters, each with a capacity in excess of 40 thousand kilograms.
Two freighters currently fly from Miami to Trinidad via Barbados returning non-stop to Miami on Tuesdays and Fridays, while the Airline?s new third service flies non-stop to Port-of-Spain from Miami and back on Wednesdays.
The new service is scheduled for an early departure from Piarco International Airport which ensures that fresh goods and produce can be delivered rapidly to Miami during business hours. This third freighter underscores Caribbean Airlines? growing role in the air-freight industry between Trinidad & Tobago and the United States.
?We?re very proud to be launching our third freighter today and to offer enhanced service to our cargo clients? says Robert Corbie, VP Commercial (Ag), ?Caribbean Airlines has once again listened to our customers who have expressed a desire to see us increase our freighter service to the US and who wish to be able to depend on our reliable and punctual service as well as our expertise in handling cargo.?
