{FILE IMAGE - Bus. Developmt. Officer Robbie Burns showing how low prices are} "REDjet’s CEO, Ian Burns, was thrilled to make the announcement, citing it as a great day for consumers, a great day for the region and the dawn of a new era in regional air travel."

REDjet says it finally received permission to commence commercial services with Kingston & Port Of Spain.

The airline confirmed that ticket sales are underway and flights to TT will commence Thursday 28th July.

These actions are in keeping with the Caribbean’s Low Fares Airline commitment to “open the skies” and, as a reward to a patient and supportive public, will launch in time for the popular Cropover festival and the eagerly awaited Rihanna “LOUD” world concert.

REDjet’s CEO, Ian Burns, was thrilled to make the announcement, citing it as a great day for consumers, a great day for the region and the dawn of a new era in regional air travel.

He said ‘We are delighted to bring low fares to passengers and still believe that the REDjet model is a compelling consumer proposition that will revolutionise travel in the Caribbean.’ He added, ‘ We truly stand ready to deliver on the REDjet promise thatEveryone Can Fly’. To date over 5000 passengers have already flown on REDjet.”

REDjet will soon issue a detailed schedule and provide information on booking and payment facilities for that territory as well.

All REDjet passengers are advised that they have 24 hours to pay for any tickets booked. Passengers embarking from Barbados are further advised that all payment facilities on the island are able to process payments.

In Trinidad, passengers are invited to utilise the credit card facility on REDjet’s website, www.flyredjet.com or via the local Call Centre number 299-0888. SurePay in Trinidad will be open on Wednesday 21st July while retail facilities will commence in roughly two weeks, with a detailed release to be issued at that time.

Mr Burns also officially announced today the Low Fares Carrier received permission to begin flights to Jamaica.

REDjet also received official confirmation from the Jamaica Civil Aviation Authority that it has been cleared to begin operating into and out of that Caricom neighbour…

The CEO added, “Coming on the heels of permission to fly to Trinidad, we at REDjet are thrilled, not only because we are making significant strides as an airline but, more so, we are thrilled that over the coming weeks, we will be able to offer our services to Jamaicans”.

Burns further added that he is thankful to Transport and Works Minister Mike Henry for granting the necessary approvals and being a catalyst to bringing change to airlift in Jamaica.
