It covers the entire Caribbean including but not limited to: Trinidad and Tobago, Antigua, Barbados, Guyana, Grenada, Jamaica, Bahamas and St. Maarten”.

     

    CALs General Manager for Cargo and New Business, Marklan Moseley said the airlines is steadfast in its commitment to serving the region, and the cargo operation continues to support the region, “delivering critical cargo and ensuring the movement of goods into and out of the region”.
