Caribbean Airlines is to serve Trinidad from Gatwick four times a week starting this summer.

The airline is to operate on Wednesdays, Thursdays, Fridays and Sundays from on June 14.

The service will be followed by three flights a week via Barbados later in the summer to provide a daily connection between London and Trinidad.

Both will be operated by Boeing 767–300ER aircraft in a two-class configuration of business and economy seating.

Onward connections will be offered via Trinidad to Georgetown, Guyana and Paramaribo, Suriname.
