CAL: Domestic operations have considerable constraints


    Caribbean Airlines says it is operating the domestic air-bridge despite considerable constraints.

    In a media release, CAL says it has been consistently increasing flights between Trinidad and Tobago since borders reopened in July 2021.

    However, it says the domestic operation is characterized by consistent losses and other variables including but not limited to:
    • subsidised flights
    • high operating costs (USD 17,306 per flight hour)
    • low prices which do not reflect actual market value
    • one-way peak demand periods outside of the July-August school holiday period

    The airline says it is mindful of the need to have an effective air bridge and continues to closely manage it, bearing in mind its constraints.
