CAL: 13,000 people transported on domestic airbridge over Easter

Caribbean Airlines said it transported 13,000 customers on the domestic airbridge over the peak Easter travel days between March 29 and April 2.

CAL operated 280 flights over that period and made over 16,000 seats available as the airline made good on its commitment to pick up the slack from the limited ferry service.

“We would like to commend our teams who worked diligently during the Easter period to ensure that our operational targets were met, and exceeded. Extra capacity was placed on the air bridge, way beyond our original projections given the significant number of persons affected by the limited ferry service, as well as our confirmed customers and stand-by travellers," said Garvin Medera, Caribbean Airlines’ Chief Executive Officer.

CAL said it has met and exceeded demand expectations during Christmas, Carnival, Easter and other holiday weekends.

"The airline continues to closely manage the air bridge and remains committed to providing consistent and reliable service throughout its 20-destination network," the airline said in a release.
