Chief Pilot of Seaborne Airlines, Brad Guest, has expressed “delight” that he has finally flown and landed an aircraft in Dominica.
Guest was one of the two pilots on the airline’s inaugural flight into Melville airport on April 1, 2013.
“I am extremely delighted to have been part of the team … it’s a dream come true and yes we are finally here and to stay,” Guest stated.
President of SeaBorne Airline, Gary D Foss, said for those who think that because it was April 1 and it was a “joke” well “it’s no joke or fool.”
“Seaborne Airlines has landed in Dominica and we are extremely happy that we were able to facilitate the process,” he said.
Foss expressed gratitude to the government of Dominica, the CEO of Dominica Airport and Sea Port Authority, Benoit Bardouille and Colin Piper of Discover Dominica. “They made it all happen and while a number of islands are calling on us for our services to replace American Eagle, getting things sorted out in Dominica was just smooth sailing,” Foss stated.
The airline replaced American Eagle which ceased operations in Dominica from March 31, 2013, in attempt to cut down on operational costs.
Seaborne is offering daily flights between San Juan and Melville Hall Airport.
