Caribbean Airlines has officially resumed its operations to Caracas, Venezuela as of Saturday (May 13), with the expansion of its route network to the Eastern Caribbean in the coming months.

These are significant milestones for the airline and signal its intention to continue its growth trajectory.

The flights between Trinidad and Caracas will initially operate every Saturday, with increased frequency expected later while returns from Caracas are on the same day.

Speaking at the re-launch event at the Piarco International Airport in Trinidad and Tobago, the airline’s CEO, Garvin Medera stated: “We are excited to resume our operations to Caracas and expand our network to the Eastern Caribbean. Our passengers have been eagerly awaiting the restart of the Caracas route and the overall expansion of our network, and we are thrilled to meet their expectations. This is a testament to our commitment to providing travellers with more options and improved connectivity. We believe these developments will enhance the travel experience for our customers and bring more economic benefits to the region.”

The Eastern Caribbean expansion was always part of Caribbean Airlines’ strategic plan but was paused during the COVID-19 pandemic. With the acquisition of four new ATRs aircrafts, the airline is now ready to improve connectivity in the region.
