(Barbados Today) New airlines attempting to break into the regional air transport sector are likely fail due to the number of unprofitable routes, according to Minister of Tourism and International Transport Richard Sealy.

Sealy’s ominous warning came just hours before new carrier Trans Island Air was set to roll out services to select regional destinations.

In what could be seen as portent in the wake of the minister’s caution, the official launch of the carrier had to be postponed after a tropical weather system prevented several flights from landing at Grantley Adams International Airport.

Today’s system grounded key officials, including Minister of Commerce and Industry Donville Inniss, who were due to join St Lucian Prime Minister Allen Chastanet at Bay Garden Hotel in Rodney Bay, St Lucia, for the ceremony.

The Barbadian media had arrived on an earlier flight and had linked up with the press from St Lucia and St Vincent before word came of the postponement.
