By working at the intersection of tourism and aviation, ACP plays a vital role in realizing the National Tourism Strategy’s vision, positioning Saudi Arabia as a global leader in tourism air connectivity.
These strategic meetings align with Caribbean Airlines’ ambitious strategic plan for the years 2023-2027, which places network growth as one of its key pillars.

As such, Caribbean Airlines is eager to contribute to the facilitation of affordable and convenient travel.
During the discussions, Mr. Mohammed explored potential interline arrangements with Saudi Air and Riyadh Air, with the latter set to launch in 2024.
This initiative is a crucial component of Caribbean Airlines’ growth strategy, emphasizing partnerships with airlines and stakeholders to extend its reach and enhance connectivity between Trinidad and Tobago, the Caribbean, and the global community
