Speaking to reporters following a function at the Charlieville Hindu Mandir in Chaguanas on Sunday, Warner said, “I am not against competition at all of any kind. As I said before, competition keeps everyone on his or her toes. What I am against is that you come in the country and nobody knows how.”
Minister of Works and Transport, Jack Warner“Caribbean Airlines does not know, Airports Authority does not know, and I don’t want to insult the prime minister by asking her because I am sure that she, too, does not know,” he said.
Warner added, “Why should it not be good for the US and good for Trinidad and Tobago. So, that too I will check later this week because I don’t know what the details are.”
On the issue of the cost of the airline’s cheap tickets, the minister said, “Not even if you go by bicycle, will it cost so low to go to Barbados.”
REDjet launched its service to Trinidad and Tobago last week, promising cheap regional fares.
