The Kingdom of Caribia is my own AU nation (soon will open a topic on it) situated in the Caribbean Sea.
Due to my strategic location the airlines looks to create a exchange hub between the North and South America, and between Europe and the Caribbean islands and Central America for both passengers and cargo flights.
Here reported the Airports situation and the locations of the Hubs.
Caribbean Air System
This is the Flag Carrier of Caribia, owned by the Royal Family, with its only HUB located at the capitol city airport, the Florencia International Airport (FLC/MCFL) (13° 0'4.33"N 74°20'54.81"W)
, and from this airport start 150 routes to the other Caribia airports, the Caribbean, the Americas, Europe, Africa and Asia.
The Fleet is composed principally of Boeing aircraft, leaving Dornier and ATR for the regional routes and for the Caribbean. The aircraft actually in fleet are 230, with 105 aircraft on order and 40 planned to be retired from 2018.
As it is intended to be in 2025.
Star Alliance member
Tropicana is the second company of Caribia, is located in the second largest city which is in the eastern arcipelago and is more tourist oriented for the Caribbean islands, Nuova Florencia International Airport (NFL/MCNF) (15° 2'35.22"N 69°37'58.51"W)
The main fleet is composed by Airbus aircraft leaving the regional and some of the Caribbean routes to the Bombardier Dash-8 series.
A total of 150 aircraft is actually in fleet with 90 aircraft on order mainly to replace the medium/long range twin jets from 2018 in order to compete with the new aircraft of the CAS.
Last one of the large airlines of Caribia is all freight airline with its main HUB in Florencia, a second HUB in Nuova Florencia and various focus cities in the Caribbean like San Juan (PR), Martinica, Santo Domingo (Domenican Republic) and Kingston (Jamaica).
CARIBEx operate flights for both Caribia and the other Caribbean islands, but most of the intercontinental flights are operated out of Florencia mega-hub mainly to the Americas and Europe, serving also some premium routes to Africa and Asia (via other bases in Anchorage and Milano).
CARIBEx is also the second airline owned by the Royal Family (51%) and share the training and maintenance facilities with the CAS, this can be seen also in the fleet commonality.
The fleet is composed of Boeing freighters for the medium/long range and by Dornier, ATR and Cessna for the the regional and Caribbean routes.
A total of 103 aircraft is actually in fleet with 12 aircraft on order.
