Caribbean Airlines (CAL) has announced its partnership with the St. Vincent and Grenadines Tourism Authority (SVGTA), as the official International Airline Sponsor of Vincy Mas 2018.
CAL said on its website that Vincy Mas provides the ideal platform for Caribbean Airlines to showcase its “From Festival to Festival” campaign, and the partnership with the St. Vincent and Grenadines Tourism Authority is integral to the Airline’s “Hello Caribbean” thrust to encourage Intra-Caribbean travel.
As an airline sponsor, Caribbean Airlines will also roll out its “Welcome to Carnival” incoming passenger meet and greet activation at the Argyle International Airport in St Vincent and the Grenadines.
Commenting on the announcement of the Airline’s partnership for St. Vincent and the Grenadines carnival, Caribbean Airlines Chief Executive Officer, Garvin Medera stated: “We are very excited to take our “festival to festival” campaign to St. Vincent and the Grenadines, and we have bolstered our operations to include an additional non-stop international service between New York and St. Vincent and the Grenadines between July 1 and August 25. This would mean two weekly non-stop services between JFK and Argyle International Airports, and the opportunity for our foreign nationals and visitors to easily book travel into St. Vincent and the Grenadines for both the carnival and summer seasons.”
Chief Executive Officer of St. Vincent and the Grenadines Tourism Authority and Carnival Development Corporation Board Member, Glen Beache, said: “This partnership between SVGTA and Caribbean Airlines is an excellent opportunity to solidify St. Vincent and the Grenadines as a premier destination. Since the airline’s start-up of service to the island in 2016, we have seen a healthy stream of arrivals, and the addition of non-stop service to North America has definitely created seamless travel to/from St. Vincent and the Grenadines. The airport arrival event will be the first of its kind at Argyle International and we definitely look forward to the reactions of our arriving guests and introducing Caribbean Airlines as the Official International Airline of Vincy Mas.”
Caribbean Airlines currently services St. Vincent and the Grenadines with flights out of Trinidad on Thursdays, Fridays and Sundays, and a non-stop flight on Wednesdays between St. Vincent and the Grenadines and New York.
Vincy Mas will run from June 29 – July 10, 2018.
