InterCaribbean Announces Fleet Expansion and New Routes


Key Takeaways

  • InterCaribbean Airways expands services with two new aircraft, boosting flights to Barbados and Windward Islands.
  • The establishment of a new hub at Grantley Adams International Airport simplifies connections to other regional destinations.
  • Increased capacity in the Eastern Caribbean enables flexible flight scheduling to multiple destinations.
  • Expansion plans extend to Guyana, enhancing travel links to the capital city of Georgetown from several Eastern Caribbean locations.

Expansion and Hub Development

Providenciales, Turks and Caicos–Airline company InterCaribbean Airways announced in a news release the addition of two new aircraft and an increased frequency of flights servicing the Barbados and Windward Islands’ route. 

The expansion of InterCaribbean’s services in Barbados is especially noteworthy. The airline has already announced plans to establish a new hub at the Grantley Adams International Airport, allowing passengers to connect to other destinations in the region easily.

Enhanced Connectivity and Growth Plans

Per a release, the two new aircraft, a 50-seat Embraer EMB 145 jet and a 48-seat ATR 42-500 series turboprop, will operate out of Barbados and serve destinations including St. Lucia, St. Vincent, Dominica, Grenada, Antigua, and the Grenadines.

This addition will increase the airline’s capacity in the Eastern Caribbean and allow for greater flexibility in scheduling flights.

In addition, InterCaribbean will expand its services to Guyana (the airline’s gateway city for South America), with new flights to the capital city of Georgetown from Barbados, St. Lucia, and St. Vincent. 

The expansion is expected to increase the airline’s customer base and benefit these countries’ tourism industries by improving transportation options. 

With more frequent and cheaper flight options, it is much more convenient for travellers to explore attractions like the Windward Islands, an archipelago infamous for its natural beauty and rich cultural heritage.

Commitment to Expansion and Upcoming Developments

“We are committed to expanding our services in the Eastern Islands of the Caribbean, where travellers have been affected by the air travel void left during the pandemic,” said Lyndon Gardiner, Founder and Chairman of InterCaribbean Airways, in the news release.

The release also noted that introducing the two new aircraft will increase the InterCaribbean fleet to five aircraft servicing Barbados and the Island routes. It will also help double flights to and from Barbados and link the Eastern and Western Caribbean with a twice-weekly flight from Georgetown and Barbados. 

Gardiner also said that InterCaribbean was “committed to providing reliable and affordable air transportation” across the Caribbean, which he said would support local economies and tourism.

He further stated that the airline intends to introduce flights to additional destinations this year.

  1. I need to eventually make my way down to the Caribbean. Oddly enough, I have never been there even though I grew up a fairly quick flight away from the region in the USA. NY-NJ is not far at all from this tropical paradise. We did see a few house sits pop up in these countries but never pursued for a few different preferences of ours. However, we will keep our eyes peeled going forward. Fleet expansion and more routes means ample travel opportunities. Sounds good to me.
