Initially, it will concentrate its air cargo service to Miami, New York, and several other U.S. destinations to be determined. Shortly thereafter, the carrier will initiate scheduled passenger service.
 Plans call for TGAL to expand service throughout the region to OECS Member States, CARICOM countries, San Juan, Toronto, London, and Caracas, With connections to Central American countries, the Cayman Islands, and the Turks & Caicos Islands.
