As REDjet plays a waiting game with authorities in Jamaica and Trinidad and Tobago, it’s continuing to explore other markets, the latest being confirmed as St. Kitts and St. Marteen.
St. Kitts and Nevis Prime Minister Dr. Denzil Douglas has revealed that his Government is looking at an application from the low-budget carrier to operate on the Barbados-St. Kitts-St. Maarten route, and to another Caribbean island which he did not disclose.
And although no final decision has been made as yet, Prime Minister Douglas has already declared that the Barbados-based carrier will be welcomed to operate into and out of the twin-island federation. It has already flown into St. Kitts’ Robert L. Bradshaw International Airport on charter with the West Indies and cricket Indian cricket teams.
REDjet itself has also hinted at more routes to come soon, posting on its Facebook page yesterday: “REDjetters, we know many of you are anxious to know what our new routes are. We are eager to tell you and will do so when all arrangements are finalised. Stay tuned to Facebook, Twitter and www.flyredjet.com for the latest news!”
The Eastern Caribbean is expected to feature prominently in the new routes. In addition to St. Kitts, management of the airline also recently had preliminary discussions with representatives of the Grenada Airlift Committee as a first step to making an official application for a license to serve that country.
So far, regular commercial flights only take place between Barbados and Guyana. REDjet is awaiting approval from Jamaica and Trinidad and Tobago which have both claimed there are safety issues which must be resolved before permission is granted.
