twelve yeaexs, has been a success,

AIR accounts for half the traffic
into that island's -international
airports The airline has 280 daily
flights, carries more than half a
million passengers a year, and goes
to eleven d'estitations including
StKitts and Antigua.
Recent developments have prompted
PRiAIR to' plan expansion. The Un-.
ited Stated Civil Aeronautics Boa-:d
is likely to allow several more Ur.
carriers to f-ly to Puerto Rico, aizd
there probably will be increased
passenger flow to that island.
PRINAR could bid for a share of.
that traffic, but PRIhAlIR s Pre4ri
dent, Mr. James Ceresa, recentlyf-
told the paper 'Caribbean Buai n ass

This looks like an excellent
break for" the Eastern Caribbean.
There have been widespread crmpla-its
against LIAT. Islands like S't.Lucia,

Some may net te lucrative but,for
the sake of our tourism, commerce

What happens then? A&i long as
PRINAIR (or any other carrier op-
