§ 24. Mr. Russell
asked the Minister of Transport and Civil Aviation to what extent the air services of British West 193 Indian Airways have been speeded up as a result of the introduction of Viscount aircraft.
§ The Joint Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Transport and Civil Aviation (Mr. John Profumo)
By amounts varying from twenty minutes between Trinidad and Barbados to one hour fifteen minutes between Trinidad and Kingston. In general flights take about three-quarters of the time that they took before. Frequencies have also been increased on some sectors.
§ Mr. Russell
Can my hon. Friend say whether this has also brought increased passenger traffic and, therefore, increased revenue?
