interCaribbean Airways (JY, Providenciales) is planning to add its maiden jet equipment airline chief executive officer (CEO) Trevor Sadler has said.

According to the AirlinesandDestinations blog, Sadler told a press conference last week it would add a pair of Embraer ERJ-145s for use in expanding the Turks & Caicos Islands-based carrier's network further into the Eastern Caribbean. The region is home to island states that include Anguilla, the US & British Virgin Islands, St. Maarten, and Puerto Rico.

Sadler has since confirmed the plans to ch-aviation but noted that more specific details, such as aircraft serials and proposed routes, would only be disclosed "in due course".

At present, interCaribbean operates eight EMB-120s, two DHC-6-300s, one Beech C99, one BN-2, and one Beech (twin turboprop) 200 Super King Air on scheduled and charter flights to destinations in Haiti, Jamaica, Bahamas, Dominican Republic, Cuba, and Puerto Rico. Talks are also underway with secondary airports in Florida and other southern US states ahead of the carrier's US debut.
