CAL/Air J Working Group
A joint Working Group is to be established to deal with issues relating to Caribbean Airlines and Air Jamaica.
The decision came out of a meeting involving Transport Minister, Dr. Omar Davies and Trade Minister for Trinidad and Tobago, Vassant Bharat, as it was viewed that there are a number of areas where there was inadequate data and information.
The two held talks on Wednesday on matters relating to the two airlines.
High on the agenda was the legality of Caribbean Airlines abolition, the brand Air Jamaica and dropping the logo from its planes.
News emerged out of Trinidad, that the authorities wanted the Air Jamaica brand laid to rest and Caribbean Airlines fly solo.
Information Minister Sandrea Falconer, during the Jamaica House Press Briefing on Wednesday, stated that there had been no official word from Trinidad about any proposal to drop the Air Jamaica brand and logo.
Additionally, the group will also examine the monies owed by Caribbean Airlines to the Airports Authority of Jamaica and the Jamaica Civil Aviation Authority.
The Working Group will review the issues and present recommendations for consideration by the two governments.
