island.
A high level delegation led by Tourism Minister Lorne Theophilus, currently en route to CHTA Marketplace underway this weekend on Paradise Island in the Bahamas, held a series of talks with several industry partners in the airline and cruise industries.
At a Thursday January 19th meeting, the team paid a courtesy call on American Airlines’ senior executives Peter Dolara and Gary Alfson.
Minister Theophilus expressed his and Saint Lucia’s gratitude for the long standing commitment and support of American Airlines at helping to shape and sustain the industry’s growth path not only in Saint Lucia but the wider region.
Flanked on one side by his Permanent Secretary Titus Preville, incoming Chairman of the Board Matthew Beaubrun and on the other by Director of Tourism Louis Lewis and Vice President of Marketing and Sales Nerdin St. Rose, Minister Theophilus noted that AA is “a valued partner.”
He added that “American Airlines has undoubtedly contributed immensely to the record levels of arrivals we have seen from key gateways out of the US. My team and I eagerly look forward to building on that collaboration in 2012 and beyond”.
Mr. Dolara welcomed the opportunity to meet and hold initial talks with not only the newly appointed Minister, but to dialogue and cement ties with other tourism decision makers, among them Matthew Beaubrun, who now serves as Chairman of the Saint Lucia Tourist Board.
Further discussions on AA’s relationship with and service to Saint Lucia are to continue over the next few weeks.
