REDjet dismisses suggestions of Closure, reveals cancellations are part of an Expansion Strategy
REDjet– the Caribbean’s Low Fares Airline today announces its planned expansion and improvement of its services for 2012. As part of the airline’s continuing development and investment in its services REDjet has made the commercial decision to make schedule changes over the coming weeks to some flights. Passengers can expect to benefit from new and more convenient flight times and from the launch of three new routes to two new destinations in time for Easter 2012.
As part of the planned development of REDjet services the airline has added a third MD-80 aircraft to the REDjet fleet in December and has hired an additional group of experienced pilots that will complete their training and enter service later this month. These investments combined with the expansion of its Call Centre, Maintenance Department and operations team at the end of 2011 will enable the airline to comfortably deliver these new services with a continued 100% commitment to providing a safe and reliable operation for its passengers.
The improved flight times will better meet passenger needs. In addition, external factors such as traffic to and from the airport around flight times and capacity constraints at some airports around peak times of the day will be greatly improved.
Passengers will be informed over the coming week of changes in the flight schedule. These changes will also be published in the daily newspapers. All passengers whose flight times have been changed will be notified of the new flight times and as a goodwill gesture a US$50 voucher will also be issued by REDjet. If passengers do not wish to travel at the new flight times they will be re-accommodated on any other REDjet service or receive a full refund.
Since launching its services in May 2011 REDjet the Caribbean’s Low Fares Airline has now successfully launched seven routes across the Caribbean and will launch a further seven to eight new routes in 2012, making it the fastest growing airline in the region. Tens of thousands of passengers have already made the switch to REDjet and the airline has quickly become a favourite for many consumers in the region offering lower fares and unbeatable customer service with market leading on-time performance and less delayed and loss bags than any other regional carrier.
