Caribbean Airlines to Upgrade Boeing 737 fleet in coming years

New fleet to enhance service

The carrier, which has long operated the Next-Generation 737, said that it will take delivery of 12 MAX airplanes in the coming years.

Caribbean Airlines Chairman, S. Ronnie Mohammed stated, “In 2019, we will place even greater focus on enhancing regional connectivity with more options to make our region more easily and affordably accessible.

Also, to ensure that our longer-term growth strategy remains on track, I am thrilled to announce that in the fourth quarter of 2019, we will begin taking delivery of our new fleet, the Boeing 737-MAX. In addition to opening new markets, these new aircraft will provide us significant advantages on operating cost, specifically fuel and maintenance.”

The Trinidad and Tobago state-owned flag carrier on Wednesday [November 21] recognised several of its corporate partners and longstanding top tier frequent flyers at a customer appreciation reception held at the Hyatt Regency Ballroom, Port-of-Spain, Trinidad. In attendance were several dignitaries, including the Prime Minister of Trinidad and Tobago, Dr. the Honourable Keith Rowley.

In his feature address, the Prime Minister made reference to the airline achieving profitability for the first nine months of 2018 stating, “Conventional business wisdom says that if you want to turn a company around, you have to control your costs, increase your revenue, and take very good care of your customers. This is what Caribbean Airlines has been doing and we are beginning to see the results in this year’s figures.”
