Caribbean Airlines and Qatar Airways in air service talks


Talks on an air services agreement between Trinidad and Tobago and Qatar are underway, Caribbean Airlines Ltd (CAL) announced on Thursday.

A statement from the airline said Ronnie Mohammed, Chairman of CAL, in discussions with Qatar Airways officials, explored the prospects for developing the relationship between the two carriers with a focus on passenger operations and freight.

In the statement, Mohammed said a relationship with the carrier would increase the potential for CAL to expand connectivity, increase commerce and provide more choice to customers.

“Qatar Airways flies to six continents and is the fastest growing airline in the world, connecting over 140 destinations worldwide. Caribbean Airlines has a mandate to improve connectivity within and outside the region and these discussions with Qatar Airways align well with Caribbean Airlines’ theme of redefining expectations for 2022.”

The release says the relationship is part of CAL’s strategic plan to renew its focus on alliances for better connectivity to the world.

Mohammed was part of a delegation the prime minister led to Doha, Qatar, for the sixth summit of the Gas Exporting Countries Forum this week.
