REDjet continues to languish in Barbados, yet the Harlequin Hotels and Resorts company is in the process of obtaining an Air Operations Certificate (AOC) to launch a St. Lucia based airline that will provide an inter-island transfer service to guests staying at the Harlequin’s luxury resorts in the Caribbean.

“Harlequin is redefining luxury in the Caribbean and with the launch of Harlequin Air we aim to provide guests with a seamless experience from arrival in the Caribbean through to resort. We pride ourselves on constantly looking for new ways and initiatives to improve the luxury service that we offer our guests,” stated Chairman and Founder of Harlequin Hotels and Resorts, Dave Ames, commenting on the plans for the inter-island airline.

Harlequin’s first plane landed in St. Lucia in the month of November last year. An article entitled, “Harlequin Air update: first plane arrives home”, dated November 15th 2011 and found on Harlequin Air News blogging site states, “We can confirm that the first plane in the Harlequin Air fleet has arrived at her new home in St Lucia. She touched down at Hewanorra International Airport on Saturday 12th November 2011 after journeying from Arkansas, US, where the second plane is now being beautified. Hewanorra, the largest airport in St Lucia, will be the airline’s home when it begins operating in 2012.
