Air Jamaica increases seats to Barbados and Grenada

Caribbean Net News: "KINGSTON, Jamaica: Air Jamaica is increasing its seat capacity from John F. Kennedy International Airport in New York to both Barbados and Grenada, effective April 1, 2008.

Paul Pennicook, Air Jamaica's Senior Vice President of Marketing and Sales, announced that the Caribbean carrier will continue to serve the New York-Barbados route with daily non-stop flights, upgrading the existing A-320 Airbus aircraft to the larger A-321 which carries an additional 38 seats."

No. 1 Destiny in the Caribbean

The Korea Times: "The Dominican Republic is the heart of the Caribbean, washed by the waters of the Atlantic Ocean in the north and the impetuous Caribbean Sea in the south.

It is a land of universal profile, buildings and streets surrounded by history, and spectacular places that remain unspoiled. This fine blend of history, nature, culture and quality of life are immersed in its modern atmosphere, with all amenities and socioeconomic stability, making the country the perfect location for investment, especially in tourism."

Top 10 beaches we love

msnbc.com: "Revered as one of the last frontiers of the Caribbean, Turks and Caicos is an oasis for those seeking to do little more than lounge on the beach, as there are few diversions other than surf, sun, and sand. And when the sand in question is as superb as gorgeous Grace Bay, it’s no wonder the focus is on the beach. Edging 12 miles along the northern coast of Providenciales (the chain’s main island), the fine white sand here is easily one of the finest swaths of beach we’ve ever seen in the Caribbean."

Air Jamaica suspends another route

Jamaica Gleaner News "The eastern Caribbean island of St Lucia is the latest route to be placed on suspension by the country's national carrier, Air Jamaica.
Effective April 1, the airline will suspend its thrice-weekly service to that country.
According to highly placed sources at the airline, the cost of operating St Lucia could not have been sustained without massive subsidy. In the past, promises of subsidising the route have been made to the airline by the St Lucian Government."

How to find the perfect Caribbean beach

Telegraph: "If you have been dreaming of escaping our miserable winter - January saw above-average rainfall in virtually all parts of Britain - there are few better places to head for than the Caribbean. In February and March, daytime temperatures across the region are in the high 20s and on most islands you will be unlucky to encounter more than a few showers in a week.

Beaches are what the Caribbean does best. The islands really can deliver those clichéd images of silky-soft sands, swaying palms and bath-warm turquoise seas."
