The region’s leading carrier, Caribbean Airlines, is getting ready to step up the quality and efficiency of the service that it offers across the region.
The airline has announced that it has made a decision to enhance and renew its fleet of aircraft with the new Boeing 737 MAX 8.
In a statement, the company said that it has long long operated the Next-Generation 737 aircraft, but has now ordered 12 of the new 737 MAX airplanes in the coming years.
Caribbean Airlines Chairman, S. Ronnie Mohammed told a recent gathering in Trinidad and Tobago that next year, the airline will place even greater focus on enhancing regional connectivity with more options to make the region more easily and affordably accessible.
The new planes will go into operation in the first quarter of next year.
The airline currently operates several daily flights from Georgetown with connections to regional and international destinations through Trinidad and Tobago.
Guyana is one of the airline’s biggest markets. The airline has seen growth in its performance over the past year, reporting a 15% jump in recent earnings.
