Western Air suspends flights to JA
Thu. Jul.21,2011

The Bahamian-operated airline Western Air has suspended flights to Jamaica due to what it says is competition from Caribbean Airlines Limited.

Western Air offered daily domestic flights to Jamaica, but with Caribbean Airlines applying to resume three weekly round-trip service between Nassau and Kingston it says it's not feasible to compete.

Captain Wolf Seyfret, Western Air's Director of Flight Operations, is quoted in Wednesday's issue of the Bahamas Tribune newspaper as saying the airline cannot match the size of the aircraft, network and the level of fares Caribbean Airlines is offering.

He said Western Air is looking at opportunities to expand elsewhere, and is currently awaiting approval from United States authorities to begin offering services to South Florida.
