PHILIPSBURG, St Maarten (CMC) – Participants from over twenty countries in the Caribbean and around the world are scheduled to attend the target airlift conference to be held in St Maarten next month.The upcoming Caribbean Aviation Meetup, scheduled for June 13-15 that is being hosted by Princess Juliana International Airport will bring parties from all industry perspectives and geographical areas together.
“The Caribbean Aviation Meetup sets itself apart from any other political summit or industry association meeting that emphasises one particular theme or subject only, be it airline routing, tourism sustainability, or a business sector. These meetings often miss an important point. If one focusses on one segment but cannot bring it in perspective to other segments, it becomes a matter of, popularly,” said the organisers.
Some of the issues to be discussed during the three day meeting include – the potential future founding of a Caribbean Aviation Association or Caribbean Airlift Council.
Another highlight of the conference will include viewing a factory-new seaplane to be flown in from Wichita Kansas, by US aircraft manufacturer Cessna/Textron. The airplane will be available for demonstrations and splash landings in St Maarten, Anguilla and Nevis.
