Caribbean Airlines is about to start service from Houston (IAH) to 2 Caribbean and South American destinations.

Service from Houston (IAH) to Georgetown (GEO) in Guyana and Port of Spain (POS) in Trinidad is set to begin on March 22, 2022.

Let’s take a look at the new routes.

Caribbean Airlines Nonstop Service From Houston

Caribbean says the service will be 3 times weekly — Tuesday through Thursday — and will operate from Terminal D at Houston’s George Bush Intercontinental Airport. As of right now, service will run from mid-March through at least June 30, 2022. The airline will also continue its existing 1-hour flight between Port of Spain and Georgetown.

Here’s the schedule provided by the airline:

  • Tuesday: Depart Port of Spain (POS) at 1:05 a.m. — Arrive Houston (IAH) at 5:20 a.m.
  • Tuesday: Depart Houston (IAH) at 8:20 p.m. — Arrive Georgetown (GEO) at 4:35 a.m. (+1)
  • Wednesday: Depart Georgetown (GEO) at 5:50 a.m. — Arrive Port of Spain (POS) at 7:00 a.m.
  • Wednesday: Depart Port of Spain (POS) at 3:30 p.m. — Arrive Georgetown (GEO) at 4:40 p.m.
  • Wednesday: Depart Georgetown (GEO) at 5:55 p.m. — Arrive Houston (IAH) at 10:35 p.m.
  • Thursday: Depart Houston (IAH) at 1:35 p.m. — Arrive Port of Spain (POS) at 9:15 p.m.

The new routes are already bookable on Caribbean’s website, and travelers flying out of Port of Spain and Guyana can pick their meals up to 36 hours before departure.

The airline will fly between the destinations on the Boeing 737 MAX 8. In November 2018, the airline signed a contract with Boeing to take delivery of 12 MAX jets. These jets have 160 seats in 2 cabins: 16 business class, 36 Caribbean Plus (premium economy), and 108 economy seats.

The airline started rolling out its 737 MAX 8 jets, which it refers to as “737-8,” in January of this year and says it will transition to a fully MAX 8 fleet by July 2022.

Hot Tip: Business class travelers will get more room on the MAX 8 than on Caribbean’s Boeing 737-800 fleet as the MAX boasts a seat pitch of 45 inches to the 737-800’s 42 inches. 

Caribbean’s service from Houston gives travelers a nonstop option to fly to Guyana and Trinidad. Currently, travelers to Georgetown have to connect in New York (JFK) if flying JetBlue or Miami (MIA) if flying American Airlines. United Airlines offers nonstop service between Houston and Port of Spain 4 days a week on its Boeing 737.

Final Thoughts

While Houston is well-known for being a big United hub, travelers now have more options to fly nonstop to several popular destinations during the spring and summer through Caribbean Airlines.
