Published on July 19, 2014 Email To Friend    Print Version

BASSETERRE, St Kitts -- Phoenix Airways, a new inter-Caribbean airline, has announced the commencement of its flight service to and from St Kitts, starting July 16, 2014.

The airline will serve destinations such as Aruba, Barbados, Antigua, Nevis, St Maarten, Anguilla, Tortola and Santo Domingo. Operations to St Thomas, St Croix and Puerto Rico will begin in October 2014 and to Miami and New York in January 2015.

Phoenix Airways has a fleet of four aircraft. These aircraft include a King Air (8-9) seats, a Beech 1900 (19 seats), an Embraer 120ER (30 seats) and a Boeing 737 (141 seats).

Phoenix Airways said it intends to provide superior service at prices 15 percent less than its competitors.

“We provide on-time travel, no delays, no lost luggage, no inflation of prices and we’ll be offering regular giveaways. Throughout the Caribbean region we will be known as one of the best airlines,” the carrier said.

Tomas Chlumecky:

We shall see, new airlines have made many announcements only to never start service or give up early on.

In fact, NO Caribbean airline has made money for reasonable length of time, I can count over 60 ! failures, even now Bahamasair, LIAT, Cayman Airways, CAL survive on government hand outs, Winair barely survived its crisis, Fly Jamaica is is trouble, in fact the only place that seems to have competition and where there are a few 'long' term carriers surviving is The Bahamas, Dominican Republic and St. Vincent and the Grenadines.

The common denominator there is they have a local domestic market.
We shall see, 10 to 1 a year from now Phoenix is not around, see it dozens of times, all pipe dreams that are not in touch with reality on the ground.

Phoenix Airways is different from any airline that is in the Caribbean. Caribbean national, normal people like you and I can have a say in the airline with the Timeshare Packages that are available. Phoenix Airways is for the people, by the people. We, the Caribbean people will be the ones upholding the airline and propelling it forwards.For more information about the timeshare packages you can contact us at or
