BRADES/PHILIPSBURG (June 10, 2010) – Three new routes have been added by the regional airline WINAIR, which has been the main carrier into Montserrat since the opening of the new airport in 2005. Starting June 28th the airline will be offering flights into St. Lucia, Dominica and Tortola.
WINAIR’s Managing Director, Edwin Hodge said after extensive and significant talks, the airline was able to secure the new routes, noting it will help to boost the company’s operations.
“We are very excited to launch these new routes as it helps us to provide better and more enhanced services to the people of the region,” Hodge added. “The new flights will complement our existing service and provide our customers with more travel options when using WINAIR.”
WINAIR hopes the additional routes will be attractive to those travelling for business, diplomatic service, to visit family and friends, and the tourism industry. Hodge, who once flew for the airline, said the company’s continued growth will be based on their experience and commitment to service. He added this new investment perfectly reflects that.
A Jetstream 32 aircraft has been acquired to service the new routes.
Vice President of Marketing, Claudio Buncamper said that the relevant stakeholders are happy. “Our primary aim is to not only offer our passengers excellent connections and service but we want to ensure they are safe and secure.” Buncamper pointed out that WINAIR continues to set standards in travel and there is much untapped potential in the region.
“I am of the firm view that with the addition of these three routes it promises to serve the unmet needs of discerning corporate and leisure flyers,” the VP of Marketing said.
Buncamper declared that WINAIR’s goal is to emerge as the market leader within the Caribbean and they are on course to do just that. WINAIR is presently loading its online flight schedule for the new destinations which will connect to all of WINAIR destinations. The airline is also hopeful that even more routes will be added in the coming months.
