St Vincent and the Grenadines would have its own 737 indigenous based airline in the not too distant future.
Prime Minister Gonsalves disclosed such information at his New Year’s press conference.
He said there is a group of Vincentian pilots and business people who want to start a small locally base 737 service.
He said this would link St Vincent from different airports, to which his government is going to give full support.
He said that the AIA has already given the group space on which to construct a hanger. Gonsalves said the clearing of such space has already begun.
The Prime Minister said the cabinet has already taken his view on the matter and have decided to give full support to this indigenous group.
He said the terms of the support have not been finalized but these would be guaranteed by the government.
