More options for twin centre holidays in the Caribbean as ATC expands in Jamaica
Air Turks and Caicos airline are looking to expand into the Jamaica market and offer travellers twin centre holidays in the Caribbean after applying for the operation of three routes which have been left vacant by Air Jamaica.
The airline Air Turks and Caicos has applied to operate three routes which have been left vacant by Air Jamaica in an attempt to enter the Jamaica travel market and offer their customers a choice of twin centre holidays in the Caribbean. The Caribbean flights have been left by Air Jamaica Express and the six year licence will be granted if no objections are raised during the mandatory two-week notice period.
The three routes include Turks and Caicos to Kingston via Nassau in the Bahamas; Turks and Caicos via Havana in Cuba; and Turks and Caicos to Port-Au-Prince and Santa Domingo via Kingston, allowing travellers to enjoy twin centre holidays in the Caribbean.
Owner and President of Air Turks and Caicos, Lydon Gardiner, said:
"Our focus is to expand our service into the Northern Caribbean. Our strategy is to encourage more multi-destination stays in the Caribbean and specifically the TCI."
With the central position of Jamaica in the Caribbean, Gardiner believes that the acquired flight routes will allow the airline access to a wider Caribbean region and encourage travellers from further afield regions, such as Europe, to take advantage of visiting more than one destination and book twin centre holidays in the Caribbean, which are often more cost-effective.
As well as offering a choice of new flights to Turk and Caicos, the airline is looking to negotiate with larger worldwide airlines to code-share Punta Cana flights and attract those customers to enjoy Turks and Caicos Islands (TCI) holidays.
"We are working with a Russian carrier who brings 2,500 people per week to Punta Cana. The TCI is an elite destination for them, and we feel we can bring them to the TCI."
Gardiner believes that TCI residents will also benefit from the increase in flights to Turks and Caicos with more connections, cheaper fares and just a 40 minutes flight from the TCI to the Dominican Republic.
"They will have better access to the rest of the world," he added. "Santo Domingo offers as many opportunities as Miami."
