Airone Ventures may establish in Barbados this year

20-May-2010 12:24 PM

Airone Ventures Ltd (AVL), a LCC start-up which was denied a base by the Jamaican Government three years ago, is expected to establish in Barbados later this year following the recruitment of several positions in the country, including line-training captains, captains, first officers and cabin crew (Jamaica Observer, 19-May-2010). The carrier plans to initially operate two leased B737-300 aircraft with plans to expand to five aircraft within two years, with services between the Caribbean and the US. Meanwhile, Airone Holdings Ltd selected communications firms, Digicel, as its marketing and sales partner.
