PM confirms coming of Seaborne Airlines; welcomes the move

seabornePrime Minister Roosevelt Skerrit has confirmed that Seaborne Airlines has made an application to operate flights in and out of Dominica and has welcomed the decision by the airline to do business with the island.

“We should look at welcoming Seaborne because people have been concerned about what other arrangements the Government would be making to replace American Eagle,” PM Skerrit said in an interview with the Government Information Service (GIS).

The prime minister said American Eagle brings in about 35 percent of visitors to the country and therefore the San Juan to Dominica route is important. “I think people must commend the efforts of the Government in seeking to address that particular challenge. We have been over the past few months, discussing and negotiating with Seaborne to get them to agree to do business with Dominica,” he noted.

Las week St. Croix-based Seaborne Airline said in a press release that effective April 1, 2013, it will be operating non-stop services from San Juan, Puerto Rico to Melville Airport in Dominica.

PM Skerrit said the airline has in fact applied to fly the route and all measures are being taken to ensure that a license is granted. “Seaborne Airlines has in fact made an application to operate flights in and out of Dominica. The application was sent to the Eastern Caribbean Civil Aviation Authority (ECCAA) to review and to give us advice on it. We believe that Seaborne will receive its license well before April 1. All administrative measures will be taken to ensure that this happens,” he said.

Seaborne Airlines is expected to replace American Eagle flights into Dominica following an announcement by American Eagle that it would be suspending flights from San Juan in 2013 to a number Caribbean destinations including Dominica.

Seaborne airlines also announced last week that effective Monday, February 18, 2013, that it has launched its first interline arrangement with American Airlines which will make connections from all of Seaborne cities at San Juan even easier.

Prime Minister Skerrit says this arrangement will allow for a more seamless travel experience.

“Critically for the arrangement with Seaborne is that they have been able to enter into a co-chair arrangement with American Airlines, so once you book with American Airlines you would automatically book with Seaborne if you are coming to Dominica. You won’t have the inconvenience of picking up your luggage in San Juan and recheck to get unto Seaborne. It would be a seamless travel experience from New York or Miami to get into Dominica,” he said.

The Prime Minister has commended the efforts of his Minister for Tourism, Ian Douglas, the Chief Executive officer of the Dominica Air and Seaport Authority Benoit Bardouille and the Director of the Discover Dominica Authority, Colin Piper, who were instrumental in negotiating and arriving at an agreement with Seaborne Airlines.

The airline company has been operating for more than 19 years in the Caribbean, carrying almost 2.5 million passengers.

  3. We are not fools
    February 27, 2013

    Fellow Laborites, Would you please join me and let Mr. Roosevelt Skeritte know in know uncertain terms that we laborites are not fools and must not be treated as fools? When I listened to th PM give this foolish speech, I could not help but shake my head in disgust and shame, knowing that I voted for him. Sorry fellow Dominicans, my bad.
    Friends, when the DLP took over in 2000, they met American Eagles flying into Dominica daily, with a capacity of 68 passengers and at times three times a day, thanks to the vision of the DFP (my party)and UWP especially which I voted to put out at all cost. 13 years later, to hear the nation’s PM come on the air and tell us that “I think people MUST commend the efforts of government in seeking to address that particular challenge.” Furthermore, he said that the AE which will be replaced by a 34 seater Seabourne, brings 35% visitors to the country. Folks, why does the PM think people MUST commend his government for their efforts? Is a 34 seater aircraft an upgrade to the 68 seater that we are loosing or a downgrade? Does he really believe he doing us a favor as Dominicans and therefore we should gladly appreciate it? Come on Mr. PM, I am not a politician and I don’t hold any public office; however, it’s almost three years since I heard that AE was going to do away with all their small planes and Dominica would be affected significantly since we cannot accomodate larger aircrafts. St. Vincent was in a similar predicarment, though not as serious, but thanks to the vision and forsight of their PM who is a close friend of yours, and the man that we flew to convince Dominicans that we did not need an International airport, went as a thief in the night and built ainternational airport in St. Vincent and as a result, the sale of AE will not affect them at all. ST. Lucia is not in trouble because they have two airports and GND will surely not be affected…only Dominica will be affected! Yet the PM wants us to applaud him. We need to let the PM know that although we are laborites we put country first and therefore for the sake of our country we will sacrifice our party for the survival of county.

    If seaborne is based in St. Croix. Why can’t they operate some flights direct from St. Croix to Dominica. Why do we have to go to San Juan. That’s absolutely ridiculous!

      February 27, 2013

      You can fly direct from St. Croix. Coastal Air Transport serves Canefield, abeit it only once a wee (sunday’s) with a 9 seater Cessna.I appreciate this may not be your choice but people do use it on a regular basis.

    A need for an international airport might be crucial, but an Int. Airport don’t just happen overnight in a country with such topography as Dominica. It’s a beautiful island of rugged terrain, valleys, cliffs etc.
    I am certain if Dominica was as flat as some other Caribbean countries there would have been an Int. airport a long time ago.
    But it’s not just about an Int. airport either. Countries like St.Lucia pays US2million a year for American Airlines to land there – bad deal. They are not able to fill the seats of the bigger jets so St.Lucia has to pay for the empty seats.
    I am not saying that Dominica will have to do the same, but I am saying the case right now is that there is no international airport and it cannot be built in one day, Eagle has pulled out, so in the mean time Seaborne airlines will be operating to Dominica. That’s not a backward step, that’s just the facts. Makes lots of sense to me. What we should be arguing about is whether or not the plans to build an Int. airport is in the pipeline and what is being done about it.
    Always welcome multiple companies to a country whether big or small. Someone mentioned why not just use Liat. If it’s Liat only, people will say, oh we need competition because Liat’s prices too high. Well having competition helps to keep our prices down. Always welcome competition people. One airline pulls out, welcome a new one in. If Dominica had an international airport and Delta decided to pull out then Continental decided to come in, would you say is a backward step? Not at all. Is the reason some of you say is a backward step is because the SAAB airplane operated by Seaborne will be smaller than the ATR operated by Eagle?? Come on! If Seaborne had a plane the size of an ATR like Eagle does, would you welcome it then? The ATR took 42-50 passengers, the SAAB of Seaborne will take 34. It’s not at all too far off.

      The issue is, money was wasted with the Melville Hall upgrade.
      We need to work on a new airport that provides a suitable approach and take off that includes night landing.
      If we can get that done, it will help solve our problem.

    February 27, 2013

    Mr. Prime Minister, Minister of Tourism, Mr. Benoit Bardouille and Mr Collin Piper. Have you all ever consider the positive impact that Jet Blue will have on the country particularly during carnival and World Creole Music Festival. From all reports it seems that this Seaborne is a relatively small plane, though it may be reasonable for slow periods, have we consider peak seasons. Jet blue is bigger and cheaper too, Jet blue is absolutely more luxurious, tidy and spacious. I am not telling you what to do but I am saying we should give this airline a try, trust me it will do us some good.

    • Jet Blue Darling
      February 27, 2013

      Hi Jet Blue baby, I too love Jet Blue, but at this point it won’t work for Dominica.

      JetBlue operates the Airbus 320 and the Embraer 190. The Airbus requires a runway length of about 6860ft to take off and the Embraer about 6745ft. Dominica runway is only 5,761ft. The figures above are for maximum take off weight and I know the planes will probably not be at maximum weight on take off, but for safety reasons, I doubt JetBlue will want their planes to land there or maybe the law will not even allow it. No room for rejected take off etc.

      Amerijet lands there because it’s a cargo plane, and has less restrictions but they will never bring in a plane that size with passengers. At least I doubt they will.

      Hopefully one day we will have a runway that can accommodate JetBlue

        Dominica does not have the traffic to maintain such a service. yes, at christmas, carnival or creole festival. one offs. I have come through Dominica on many occasions and there are just four of us getting off. Remember that the government will have to pick up the costs for unfilled seats as St Lucia and possibly St Vincent may have to do. The only way it works is if the airline has a final destination where the majority of people will get off and it is not feasible to the airline to stop off for a small amount of passengers.

    I live on St Croix and that where i know Sea borne airline is based i live close to the sea planes, because we got seaplane landing on the sea, if one do not want to take the sea plane then you go to the air port to take the sea borne airline ok my people . and that is for those people who were asking where that sea borne airline comes from. The USVI resurrect Seaborne. check their website. We here on St croix should get straight flight from St Croix to Dominica not Puerto rico.

    Stop being foolish. Seaborne is actually doing the BVI San Juan route as well since AA is pulling out of the CARIBBEAN, not only Dominica. Seaborne does have seaplanes that land in St. Thomas and St. Croix on a daily basis. However these planes will land at airports and not seaports. What do you want, American shut down then no one can come into the country then?

    Every month their appears to be a new air line comming to Dominica.A month a go we were told that Air Sunshine would be flying out of P.R. to Dominica, what they didn’t tell us was that Air Sunshine carries approximately eight passengers and its business is strickly as a charter aircraft. Presently, LIAT operates a flight that leaves P.R. to Dominica at 3.20PM, their was talk of approximately $8M being given by Government to assist Liat,therefore, why not use Liat instead of Seaborne.

    Seabore shouuld have connection flight with delta airline as well,so passengers from Atlanta esle where will able to arrive Dominica the same day with American Airline passengers had too over night in Puerto Rico Delta has direct flight from Atlanta to St martin and Antigua,It will allow destination easier to travel to Dominica, when you try to book a ticket from delta Dominica is not on their destination,something need to get done ,delta airline has more flights then American Airline.

      Lack of competition and less than full planes is the answer and by the way, our Govt.. complaining about high tax to the Caribbean from the U.K. Did you know you can fly to Dominica from London for less than from Dominica to London by the same route and same carriers? Everybody can talk but sk your govt. to explain.

      The AA and Seaborne were able to only negotiate a deal with DA and they chose DA because the PM is that good.

      But she is upset because, she can’t understand whyonly Dominica, considering that Eagle flew to all the other islands.

      Evolved is 10000% correct. These charlatans always like to pop up and pretend like they made some magic negotiations to facilitate things.

      Seaborne simply decided to take the route.

    • Dorival John
      February 26, 2013

      That is crap…Seaborne could not take over the route unless they are given a license to fly into Dominica. It is not like AMR called Seaborne and AMR gives Seaborne its license and said, “hey take over the route. Fly into Dominica.” It doesn’t work like that. Seaborne could have negotiated all its wants with AMR but unless it gets a license for the gov’t of Dominica it won’t be able to fly into the island.

      • anon
        February 26, 2013

        Which means that even if the government had to approve the license, they weren’t necessary for the decision of the new airline to negotiate with AA. At best, the government could have made things more difficult or easier for them.

        That’s like pulling up in an office, hard at work to improve a business, and then having a boss who does nothing claim all the credit for your efforts because it’s his signature that approved your work.

      Yes seaborne airlines is actually operationg small Amphibian Dash 6(twin otter) planes. For those who dont know, thats the same aircraft Winair uses. They fly between the islands and land at the seaports but they also have an Airport shuttle service which uses the same aircraft but at the aiports instead of the water. But I think they are suppose to come out with a bigger Aircraft, which is the Saab 340, it is still smaller than American’s ATR or Liat’s Dash8 but its comfortable, actually its the same aircraft in this article’s photo.

      Case in point: I just finished booking (this morning) a flight to Dominica for travel on March 22nd, from the US, to return on April 4. Can you guess how much juggling – between a reasonable fare, accomodations and timing – I had to do to get to and from Dominica? Traveling to and from Dominica, in this the 21 C, is a mind-numbing headache. The exercise is not one for the faint-hearted at all. Entirely too costly and burdensome.

      You have to wonder, seriously, what is this man crowing about? What is he beating his chest about? How the H… do we position ourselves to participate in and embrace the opportunities for successful, sustained economic development in this new millenium? If we’re not yet accepting of the need to more fluidly move goods, services and people in and out of country?

      Maybe the price of tickets was based on the difficulty in landing in Dominica. What sayeth you? The most complicated for them in the region.

      • STILL
        February 26, 2013

        It is more likely that the price is based on the demand for tickets. Less tickets sold the higher the priced to cover the associated costs to get there. Also airline tickets vary widely from seat to seat on the same flight. It’s all about Covering cost. Someone gets a cheap ticket others on the same flight has to pay more

    Whereby sis islands like Vincy, Lucia etc are Raising the bar either by Building Jet Airstrips Or Getting International Jet Commercial Carriers Into Their Homeland, Dominica is thinking it’s the End Of The World with Seaborne Airlines. what a Joke.

    So does Dominica think on developing it’s Tourism And Investment Product, this is a 40 years Backward thinking by this Prime Minister.

    Does he really Travel?

    Does he see how other Regimes and Policy Makers Think long term and outside of the Box?

    He boast of such Great Foreign Policy under his Watch, Please Tell me why is Dominica the POOREST IN THE EASTERN CARIBBEAN?

    It’s only in a place called Dominica on planet Earth a Prime Minister would be Filling his Personal Pockets and smiling to the Citizens Telling them-you see i am working hard for you.

    Dominica (WILL NOT DEVELOP) with that Mass of Foolish and Evil thinking..

    What happens investors will read you the Prime Minister as a player and move to islands where They are smarter and much more willing to think.

    A Jet Airstrip is a Major Pinnacle of Growth to Any island- Health, Sports, Tourism, Agriculture Etc..

    Dominica needs to stop thinking in the Gutters and Place Policy Makers who can expand the thought Process in Dominica..

    This kinda culture of low level thinking keeping You in a crab hole state is the worst curse to a Human Being.

    Elections will come around what happens a few Hundred dollars, Red T-Shirt a shoot of bush rum A Smile and hand shake, Look we re surface roads, Yes we Care, Red Clinic-is the way forward in Dominica in this 21st Century…WOW WOW WOW WOW!

Seaborne has less than the seating capacity of the planes Liat currently flies from that destination, to Dominica, and almost half the seating capacity than the ones Liat are about to lease in Summer. Lets see if Seabourne can do better than them in price; or even may have two flights available like Seabourne used to. Not sure why winding the clock back is a great thing.

    That plane holds 34 passengers, thats half of what the eagle holds, that to me is not good enough, and the luggage compartment is to small, Mr Skerrit are you saying take what you get? WRONG DEAL !!

    Good stuff!!! Always happy when the Government can show positive results as it benefits all of us whether you red, green, blue, yellow!!!!

    Only concern is I hope that the schedule allows same day arrival. Other than that bravo all the way!!!!

    I hope Seaborne Airlines will not be charging for luggage. If that should be the case, Tropical Shipping will profit on shipment. Ah, American do not fly out of Ft. Lauderdale, I would have to wake up two hours earlier to get to Miami since international flight passengers have to check in three hours prior to departure.

    I like the idea of not having to pick up luggage and to re-check in San Juan. I thought the PM would make arrangements with JETBLUE or AIRTRAN. There airfare is lower than that of American.
