The Tobago House of Assembly (THA) says that notwithstanding the challenges in the accommodation sector, some major and small properties in Tobago reported between 60 to 80 percent occupancy over the Easter weekend.
The THA says this included both international and domestic visitors to the destination.
In a statement issued Thursday, the THA Division of Tourism, Culture and Transportation said that according to Caribbean Airlines (CAL), over 13,000 passengers were transported between Trinidad and Tobago during the “Easter peak period” of March 29 to April 02, 2018.
The national airline, Caribbean Airlines (CAL) owes a staggering $210 million in rent to the Airports Authority of T&T (AATT), according to the Auditor General’s Department.
CAL has promised to come up with some kind of settlement plan to pay off the outstanding arrears.
This was revealed yesterday in a Public Accounts Committee meeting chaired by Bhoe Tewarie at the Parliament Building, Port-of-Spain.
The Port Authority of Trinidad and Tobago (PATT) says that in the interest of public safety it has withdrawn the T&T Express from service with immediate effect.
PATT says, to accommodate the high demand at this time, arrangements have been made with Caribbean Airlines Limited (CAL), based on the availability of seats, to accommodate some of the passengers with confirmed tickets during the period 8th to 14th February.
National carrier Caribbean Airlines has announced the start of non-stop service between St. Vincent and the Grenadines’ Argyle International Airport and New York’s, John F. Kennedy International Airport.
The weekly service will operate every Wednesday and begin on March 14, 2018.
Caribbean Airlines says customers will now benefit from the non-stop service between St. Vincent and the Grenadines and Caribbean Airlines’ other international and regional destinations.
