Caribbean Airlines (Port of Spain) has announced it will fly from Piarco, Trinidad to London Gatwick, with four weekly nonstop flights on Wednesdays, Thursdays, Fridays and Sundays, starting June 14, 2012. Flights will depart Port of Spain, Trinidad at 7:10 p.m. (1910) local time and out of London Gatwick on Mondays, Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays at 11:50 a.m. (1150) local time.
This will be followed shortly by three flights a week via Bridgetown, Barbados and onward to London thus facilitating a daily service out of Trinidad. The Barbados flight will be launched in the summer of 2012. Both services will be operated by a Boeing 767-300 ER aircraft with a two class configuration of Business and Economy.
This is a new type for the flag carrier and restores London service previously operated as BWIA West Indies Airways. BWIA previously served Heathrow Airport.
Caribbean Airlines replaced BWIA after 66 years of flying on January 1, 2007.
