Cayman Islands: Opposition pushes for cost details of CAL's Barbados route

The main opposition People's Progressive Party Movement in the Cayman Islands has called for the government to provide a detailed report on any financial losses the national carrier, Cayman Airways, incurred with the end of the short-lived route to Barbados.
Opposition Leader Roy McTaggart called for transparency regarding the costs associated with starting, operating, and terminating the route, including any expenses related to cancelling contracts with handling agents in Barbados.
Given that planes were taking off with less than 24% occupancy and, on some occasions, were virtually empty, Mr McTaggart said the opposition would be asking parliamentary questions in June about whether or not Cayman Airways had been properly paid. 
He also raised concerns about whether the diversion of the aircraft to the Eastern Caribbean, especially as it was an overnight route, impacted more profitable gateways or those that could have attracted visitors.
