Direct Tobago holidays with non-stop flight from New York this winter

Those highly-stressed New Yorkers seeking a sunny break will have the option to enjoy direct Tobago holidays with a new set of flights flying directly into the pristine Caribbean island from New York. The Division of Tourism and Transportation at the Tobago House of Assembly has successfully negotiated with Caribbean Airlines the establishment of a new flight between New York’s JFK Airport and Tobago’s Crown Point International Airport.

Secretary of Tourism and Transportation, Oswald Williams, announced that the service will begin December 12, 2010 and will operate every Sunday on the airline’s Boeing 737-800 aircraft, which has a seat capacity of 154 passengers.

“We are delighted to partner with Caribbean Airlines to further the development of international tourism in Tobago, particularly for this critical upcoming 2010-11 winter travel season,” said Williams.

Caribbean Airlines flight BW529 will depart JFK every Sunday at 2:35 pm and arrive at Tobago’s Crown Point International Airport at 7:30 pm. Flight BW528 will depart Tobago at 7:35 am, arriving JFK at 12:40 pm, allowing for excellent connections throughout the US and Canada.

“The US market is an important and natural one for Tobago’s niche markets of scuba diving, eco and soft adventure and weddings and honeymoons. The easier we make it for Americans to visit Tobago, the greater chance we have of growing our arrivals and diversifying our customer base,” noted Director of Tourism Warren Solomon. “The Division of Tourism and Transportation and its private sector partners will be mobilizing their collective resources to promote this new service throughout the US with a series of online promotions, print advertising and travel agent presentations over the coming months.”

“As we continue to develop our hub operations here in the Caribbean, we feel confident that this new addition to our schedule and the timing of the flights will enhance Tobago’s competitiveness in North America. The departure and arrival times allow for easy connections from both the east and west coasts of the United States,” Capt. Ian Brunton, CEO, Caribbean Airlines, added, in announcing the new flights.

Caribbean Airlines currently services Caribbean holidays by operating in 13 markets across the Caribbean, North and South America.
