Ricky Drayton, Manager of Vincy Aviation, local agent for Caribbean Star, said the airline is celebrating its anniversary at a time when it is in the process of expanding in the Caribbean.

An elated Drayton used the opportunity to disclose that Caribbean Star Airlines has reached an agreement to acquire three new state of the art Dash-8 aircraft from manufacturer Bombardier Aerospace in Canada.

Drayton said that some critics had given Caribbean Star one year of survival in the industry but today the airline has successfully completed five years and is hoping to do another five.
