Caribbean Airlines (Port of Spain) has brought the “BW” code back to London. Previously BWIA West Indies Airways (Port of Spain) dropped the route five years ago. The flag carrier launched twice-weekly Port of Spain-London (Gatwick) service on June 14 (arriving at LGW on June 15) with a wet leased Boeing 767-300 from Omni Air International-OAI (Tulsa). Caribbean is leasing the aircraft from Omni for the route pending the delivery of two Boeing 767-300s (msn 26327 and 27597) from LAN Airlines (Santiago).
According to the Trinidad Express the first flight was 65 percent filled.
