REDjet, the Caribbean’s Low Fares Airline, officially announced today that it has received permission to commence commercial services between Trinidad and Barbados.
The airline confirmed that ticket sales began today and flights will commence Thursday 28th July.
These actions are in keeping with their 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 that ‘Everyone Can Fly’. To date over 5000 passengers have already flown on REDjet.”
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.
Full schedules can be found on the company’s website and additional information can be found online and through the Call Centres in each market.
