Caribbean Airlines and Colombia’s Avianca are in talks that could result in direct flights between Colombia and T&T. This would facilitate easier business and trade between the two countries, said Alfonso Múnera, secretary general, Association of Caribbean States (ACS).



Múnera spoke about a meeting between T&T’s Foreign Affairs Minister Winston Dookeran and Colombia’s Foreign Affairs Minster Maria Angela Holguin in June in which the management of Colombia’s largest airline, Avianca was also involved. These talks between the airlines is the result of an ACS ministerial meeting held in February in Panama. Múnera spoke to the Guardian last Thursday at the office of the ACS, Sweet Briar Road, St Clair.
