REDjet Airlines Grounded Due to Financial Problems

Yet another example of why you must never travel without travel insurance

Barbados, Monday March 19, 2012 – After just 10  months in the skies, low-cost carrier REDjet is grounded due to financial  problems.  The Barbados-based airline needs an $8 million injection, and  government support so it can take to the skies once again.  Without such help,  the future of the airline is uncertain.  The airline suspended all flights to its nine destinations on Friday night until  further notice.

The grounding of the airline has not gone down well with passengers, some of whom purchased tickets within minutes of the airline’s announcement that  all flights were being suspended.  Passengers flooded the airline’s  Facebook page expressing their frustration over the airline’s lack of  communication with them about what was happening to allow them to better plan  for their travel.  Some passengers are also demanding their money back.
