Of the seats provided, 33,050 were used, with a total of 494 flights operated and some 12,419 passengers who did not hold confirmed bookings being accommodated.

The release said several scheduled flights were consolidated and upgraded to Boeing 737 jet services to ensure that all confirmed passengers travelling between Trinidad and Tobago during the Christmas peak were successfully transported. 

Dionne Ligoure, CAL's Head of Corporate Communications said: “The Christmas holiday season is one of the busiest travel periods between Trinidad and Tobago, flights were operated using both the ATR and Boeing 737 fleet and Caribbean Airlines was able to accommodate all confirmed passengers and around 12,419 persons who did not have confirmed bookings.
