Port-of-Spain, 2015-10-9 — /Travel PR News/ — UPDATE ON CAribbean airlines NETWORK PLANS PORT OF SPAIN, October 06, 2015 – Caribbean Airlines having conducted a detailed review of its network, consistent with the current competitive environment, has taken the difficult decision to withdraw the Boeing 767 fleet from its operations.

Caribbean Airlines will assist its valued customers with finding alternative travel arrangements to/from London, having communicated its plans to the other airlines serving this route.
A dedicated unit at Caribbean Airlines call centers will assist affected customers with their travel needs.
