LONDON – Caribbean Airlines’ first Boeing 737 MAX 8 made its first flight to Guyana on the 14th of February when it operated as BW526 from Trinidad with onward services to New York.
It was the first time that the new aircraft was used on this route.
In commemorating the occasion, Caribbean Airlines CEO Garvin Medera stated:
“Caribbean Airlines and Guyana continue to enjoy a longstanding and productive relationship, and since our start in 2007 we’ve provided consistent service to Guyana including daily non-stop flights between New York and Guyana with seamless connections throughout our network.”
“Caribbean Airlines has the most extensive route system of all operators in the region and Guyana continues to be one of our most significant destinations.”
“The introduction of the 737-8 into our jet fleet, resets and elevates our customer experience; and is the culmination of extensive research and data-driven innovation to refresh the Caribbean Airlines brand.”
He continued: “Customers traveling to New York today will be in for a treat, as there will be giveaways on board and everyone will receive a goodie bag with special tokens of appreciation.”
The airline has recently launched a new campaign called “REset Expectations” which is the overreaching theme that plays a big role in the actions of Caribbean Airlines to ensure the authenticity of the Caribbean brand.
Customers have the option to a suite of customizable options for pre-travel and on-board services available.
The Boeing 737 MAX 8 will progressively enter throughout the Caribbean Airlines network, and the latest scheduled is open for sale.
