REDjet set for St. Maarten, direct flight from Barbados

REDjet announced plans Thursday to begin service to St. Maarten from Barbados. In a statement, it said that having received the necessary licenses required to fly to St. Maarten, the airline would launch sales in about two weeks, and anticipated the sale of its "famously low fares" during the first week of March.

The service to St. Maarten will mark the airline's first entry into the Dutch island, with works underway to launch more routes from the island. The route will provide the only non-stop jet service from Barbados, the statement read.

The route will operate twice weekly, with a day service on Saturdays. In another first, REDjet said it would also offer passengers the option to travel with unlimited baggage, allowing them to capitalise on the commercial and shopping opportunities available in St. Maarten.

St. Maarten will be REDjet's seventh destination, having launched its sixth, St. Lucia, as recently as December, with the successful launch of flights to Antigua and Jamaica, in November. REDjet utilises MD-80 aircraft.
