ST JOHN’S, Antigua – Low cost carrier, REDjet has been granted permission to begin commercial service to Antigua and is hoping to commence flights in the next two months.
CEO Ian Burns confirmed this for The Daily OBSERVER, saying he is excited about the development since the airline sees the country as a potential hub.
“We are delighted. Antigua is a very important part of the Eastern Caribbean and is like a little hub in itself,” he said.
“We are excited about flying there. We would like to develop some more routes out of there as well. We would see Antigua as a starting point and we hopefully would be going into bigger destinations.”
Burns said REDjet received the approval letter from the Antigua & Barbuda Air Transport Licensing Board last Thursday.
