Government Approves REDjet to Fly
Posted: Sunday, July 17, 2011


The Government is pleased to announce that the court action brought by the operators of Airone Limited, trading as REDjet, commercial air services, against the Civil Aviation Authority of Trinidad and Tobago and Mr. Amral Mohammed, in his capacity as Chairman of the Air Transport Licensing Authority of Trinidad and Tobago has been settled on terms which are mutually acceptable to all parties.

The terms of the settlement remain private as between the parties.

The Regulatory Authorities are now satisfied that as of the date of the aforesaid settlement, all the stringent regulatory requirements including safety have been met and are complied with.

The relevant Regulatory Authorities continue to discharge their public functions and duties as to the continued monitoring of all air carriers operating in Trinidad and Tobago so as to ensure that the highest standards are attained, consistent with this country's unblemished aviation record.

With the consesus of our regional partners and all stakeholders in the industry, together with assurances of compliance of the most stringent standards, and the appropriate regulatory oversight, the inclusion of other airlines as regional carriers into the market is reflective of Trinidad and Tobago's commitment to an open sky policy, subject to the compliance with
all requirements.

We are certain that the consuming public in Trinidad and Tobago and the region would welcome a choice in air travel at this time. It is reflective of this country's commitment to the region and to the development of our Caricom partners.

Senator Devant Maharaj
Minister of Transport
