Caribbean Airlines has said it is reaccommodating passengers affected by Tuesday’s tropical storm alert.

The airline cancelled three international flights on the Miami to Port of Spain and Port of Spain to New York routes.

On Wednesday, CAL also cancelled seven airbridge flights, except for a 4 pm flight from Port of Spain, and one at 9.15 pm from Crown Point, as well as four domestic flights on Tuesday.

There were also changes to the departure and arrival times of regional flights to and from Barbados, Guyana, Jamaica, Suriname and St Maarten.

Passengers on Tuesday flights to Suriname, Curacao, St Maarten, Guyana and Barbados experienced some disruption.

In a follow-up e-mail on Wednesday afternoon CAL said 5.55 pm and 1.15 pm flights from Piarco to New York had been arranged to accommodate passengers on cancelled flights to that route.

The 1.15 pm flight will now leave on Friday and the 5.55 pm flight left on Wednesday.

Contacted for an update CAL’s head of corporate communications Dionne Ligoure told Newsday, “Prior to the rescheduling due to the tropical storm warning CAL reached out to the affected passengers who have been and continue to be re-accommodated on the next available services.

“We continue to encourage passengers to register for real-time flight notifications and updates and to check the flight status using the Flight Status tab on the CAL website.”
