CARIBBEAN Airlines (CAL) says customers who travelled between Trinidad and Tobago for last weekend's Tobago carnival had a "seamless" experience.

The celebrations began on October 27 and ended on October 29.

In a press release on Wednesday, CAL said from October 26-30, there were 184 return flights providing 14,288 seats on the domestic airbridge.

For the same period, it said 7,144 seats were provided for flights from Trinidad to Tobago on 92 flights, but 2,252 seats went unused.

And for flights from Tobago to Trinidad, the same number of seats and flights were provided, but this time, 2,641 seats were unused.

CAL CEO Garvin Medera said the domestic airbridge is a significant part of the company's operations, and customers have praised its services for the carnival.

"Extra flights were scheduled and our operations and airport teams focused heavily on careful flight management and service delivery.

"Passengers with confirmed bookings were accommodated on their scheduled flights and our on-time performance for the weekend was over 87 per cent, which is over the global aviation industry standard of 85 per cent."
