Caribbean Airlines will boost service between Port of Spain and New York John F Kennedy from 15 January 2015.
The carrier will add an additional daily flight on the route, operated with a Boeing 767 - the first widebody flight that the airline will deploy between the two cities. Caribbean Airlines operates mostly Boeing 737s to New York from Port of Spain.
The carrier will offer 48 flights weekly between Port of Spain and New York including existing one-stop service, with the additional flights. Caribbean Airlines competes against JetBlue Airways on the route, Innovata schedules show.
Separately, Caribbean will also increase the frequency of non-stop service between Georgetown (Guyana) and New York to daily. The airline now operates five times weekly non-stop on the route, and also offers twice daily one-stop service via Port of Spain. Caribbean is the only carrier operating on the route.
In addition, the airline will increase flights on its Port of Spain-London Gatwick route to four times weekly from 4 February, up from thrice weekly currently. The carrier will cease its twice weekly non-stop service between Georgetown and Toronto from 1 March, but will replace the route with one-stop service via Port of Spain. After Caribbean's withdrawal, Fly Jamaica will be the only airline operating non-stop between Georgetown and Toronto with weekly service.
