Additional flight service from Trinidad to Tobago

TOBAGO, West Indies – The Tobago House of Assembly (THA), in conjunction with the Tobago Ministry of Works and Transportation, recently announced additional service from Piarco International Airport in Trinidad to Crown Point International Airport in Tobago.

The new service, designed to meet the anticipated increase in arrivals from Trinidad began July 10 and will continue until at least September 10, 2006. Made possible by a $2 million (TT) lease of a Boeing 737-400 series aircraft, the new flight capable of carrying 150 passengers per trip will depart daily at 7:45 a.m.

There are four daily flights in conjunction with the Tobago Express service that operates the Trinidad/Tobago route with 28 daily flights and transports 37,000 passengers a month. With this new service, 18,000 additional passengers can be accommodated every month.

“This very important addition to airlift options reflects the Tobago House of Assembly’s commitment to our rapidly growing market in Tobago,” said Neil Wilson, THA Tourism Secretary.

“This service comes at a great time where domestic traffic is on the rise. The additional air service also allows us to introduce the beauty, warmth and hospitality of Tobago to a larger segment of international travelers.”

Tobago, located in the southeastern region of the Caribbean, provides an ideal location for weddings & honeymoons, eco-adventure, scuba diving, and golf as well as unadulterated fun in the sun.

With their careful approach to tourism, Tobago offers one of the last absolutely unspoiled Caribbean destinations. Sister island to Trinidad, Tobago is the quintessential Caribbean island with secluded beaches, quaint villages, charming hotels and smart new resorts.
