GEORGETOWN, Guyana: A new airline is expected to serve 12 Caribbean countries from next month.

The Kaieteur News reported that the Regional Jet Express will operate in Barbados, Dominica, Guyana, Jamaica, Panama, Puerto Rico, Santo Domingo, St Croix, St Thomas, Suriname, British Virgin Islands and Trinidad and Tobago.

Additionally, Regional Jet Express is expected to add both Cuba and Haiti to its list of destinations all over the Caribbean. These two islands will be served using non-US registered aircraft.

The airline intends to use the Fairchild Dornier 328 jet, the world's first 32-seat regional jet. A regional jet is a short-haul, turbofan-powered aircraft used for commuter flights.

The Kaieteur News report states that due to the fuel efficient, Pratt & Whitney Canada PW306B turbofans that power these aircraft, Regional Jet Express has said that this will result in "halved flying times and cheaper fares".

It is expected that airfares will range between US$100 and US$700 depending on the destination.
