— The government of Trinidad and Tobago has revoked the license of the Caribbean’s first discount airline as it struggles to survive.

Transport Minister Devant Maharaj said Friday that the island’s Civil Aviation Authority believes REDjet cannot provide reliable service. The announcement comes nearly two weeks after Barbados suspended the airline’s license.

REDjet halted its flights earlier this month amid financial woes and says it is seeking government subsidies to help resume service.

The Barbados-based airline company began serving the Caribbean in May.
