REDjet finally given go-ahead for Trinidad & Tobago flights

Barbadian low cost carrier, RedJet has been given the green light to fly to Trinidad and Tobago, after several months of uncertainty. Media reports quoting sources say the airline is expected to begin flying the route on July 28.
A compromise is said to have been reached between Trinidad and Tobago’s civil aviation authority and Airone ventures limited, the parent company of Redjet, following a court matter on Friday last.

This is the latest twist in the saga that began with Trinidad and Tobago and Jamaica denying entry to the carrier.

The controversy has sparked a region-wide debate about the cost of intra-regional travel, the future of regional integration, competition and safety in the aviation industry.

Redjet is expected to hold a news conference this week to officially make Port of Spain its third destination after Barbados and Guyana.
