On Wednesday November 21, Caribbean Airlines recognised several of its corporate partners and longstanding top tier frequent flyers at a customer appreciation reception held at the Hyatt Regency Ballroom, Port-of-Spain, Trinidad. In attendance were several dignitaries, including the Prime Minister of Trinidad and Tobago, Dr. the Honourable Keith Rowley.
In his feature address, the Honourable Prime Minister made reference to the airline achieving profitability for the first nine months of 2018 stating: “Conventional business wisdom says that if you want to turn a company around, you have to control your costs, increase your revenue, and take very good care of your customers. This is what Caribbean Airlines has been doing and we are beginning to see the results in this year’s figures.”
Honourees for the night included Skyline Freight and Aeropost, recognised for their contribution as Cargo Freight Forwarders and their existing and continued support of Caribbean Airlines as their preferred cargo freighter. Skyline Freight was awarded Exporter of the Year, and Aeropost earned the award for Fastest Growing Importer of the Year. Travel agencies, Haygem Travel and Amral's Travel Services, as well as RBC Royal Bank, Massy Group and Ernst & Young were recognised as Long Standing Partners and top Corporate Clients of Caribbean Airlines.
Caribbean Airlines also recognised Mr Matthew Fermin, as the top flyer in the highest tier Executive Gold category in Trinidad & Tobago. Mr. Fermin flew over 80,000 miles for 2017 and was awarded with Lifetime Club Membership, in the airline’s Club Caribbean. Five (5) Gold Members were also rewarded for travelling over 40,000 miles each for 2017.
Chief Executive Officer, Garvin Medera in his address stated: “In the world of business, and especially in the world of airlines, loyalty is greatly valued. At Caribbean Airlines we do not take loyalty for granted and nothing lifts our hearts more than the support of our customers. This evening, we honour and reward some of those truly loyal customers and partners for whom Caribbean Airlines is always the preferred option.”
Caribbean Airlines is also pleased to announce the airline has chosen to enhance and renew its single-aisle fleet with the Boeing 737 MAX 8. The carrier, which has long operated the Next-Generation 737, will take delivery of 12 MAX airplanes in the coming years.
Caribbean Airlines Chairman, S. Ronnie Mohammed stated: “In 2019, we will place even greater focus on enhancing regional connectivity with more options to make our region more easily and affordably accessible. Also, to ensure that our longer-term growth strategy remains on track, I am thrilled to announce that in the fourth quarter of 2019, we will begin taking delivery of our new fleet, the Boeing 737-MAX. In addition to opening new markets, these new aircraft will provide us significant advantages on operating cost, specifically fuel and maintenance.”
Caribbean Airlines continues to serve the people of Trinidad & Tobago, the region, the Diaspora and its valued stakeholders within the Caribbean and beyond.
