An executive of SVG Air met with officials from the Ministry of Communications & Works and the Honourable Premier Reuben T. Meade on Thursday to work through arrangements to cover the island's air transport needs for the present and coming festival season.
Premier Meade confirmed late Thursday that meetings were held with Paul Gravel, CEO of SVG Air to agree to terms for meeting the island's airlift needs to cover the gap left by the grounding of Fly Montserrat earlier this week.
Gravel has committed to adding a midday flight as well as transport the passengers already booked on Fly Montserrat for the coming weeks. SVG will be handling medivac services on an on-call basis from their base in Antigua, Gravel said.
The premier said he was pleased with this arrangement and that the subsidy which was not utilised by Fly Montserrat will be made available to SVG Air to allow for ticket prices to remain the same during the expected high traffic festival season in December.
SVG Air plans to source another aircraft to support their service to Montserrat to facilitate the increased traffic.
Monair Travel Service is the local handlers for the airline and can be reached at 664-491-4200. You can contact SVG air directly on www.svgair.com
