New Airline In The Caribbean (Rumor)
AFCDGPTP From France
Mon Nov 28 2011

Air Caraibes (TX) will get rid of its sole E190 by the end of 2012, keeping only their 3 ATR72'-500s on the regional routes & also planning on adding a new ATR72 (a -600 serie).

Pilots on the regional are not too happy about that decision (especially captains) cause the airline wants to transfer both captains and first officers as first officers on the A330's.

A group of them decided to launch a new airline by the 1st quarter of 2013 using 2 B-737-700's based in PTP to fly the current routes operated with the E190 (PTP, FDF, PAP, SDQ, CAY, BEL, HAV).

They are in talks with politics of Guadeloupe(PTP), Martinique(FDF) & French Guyana(CAY)

For now, the name kept for this new airline is : FRENCH CARIBBEAN AIRLINES.

As a reminder, TX has 3 ATR-72-500s and just received on the 25th of NOV a brand new A333 (F-HPTP) with a new business class (Madras Class), with a total of 5 A330s (including one -200)
They're adding a 2nd ORY-PAP(Haiti), a 3rd ORY-SXM, a 4th ORY-CAY / Weekly
