“The arrival of Caribbean Airlines and its connections to tropical getaways is great news. It furthers our plans as an airport and as a community to cultivate and connect to markets that have historically been under served. This is good business for Orlando International and the 35 million people we serve and is good business for all of Central Florida”, says Cesar E. Calvet, Chairman of the Greater Orlando Aviation Authority.

The new service starts an initial schedule of two flights per week from Orlando International to Port-of-Spain, Trinidad featuring Boeing 737-800 aircraft.
