On February 10th, Air America presented its new image in a press conference held at the International Airport Luis Muñoz Marin. Well known executives from the aviation industry as well as from the Tourism sector gathered at the event to learn about the new improvements that Luis Feliciano had been working on for the past year.
Through a substantial investment, the company renewed their planes, hired new personal with vast experience, and other significant improvements to enhance the customers’ experience.
“We are celebrating after a year of hard work, and today we are ready to present the new Air America to Puerto Rico and the Caribbean,” expressed Feliciano. “Our main purpose is to provide the passengers with a pleasant experience before they board the aircraft, and in this way, become the number one charter company in the Caribbean,” he added.
Currently the company has five twin engines planes, three of these planes are showcasing artwork from renowned artists from the Caribbean. All the aircrafts have different artwork that highlights the destination they travel to.
“Working with the artists Carlos Dávila Rinaldi, Lisa Etre, Janet Cook-Rutnik and David Zayas has been an extraordinary experience. Each one has contributed their art, their time and creativity. The final product is a true work of art. Through their representations, our aircraft express what the Caribbean is about”, said Feliciano.
Feliciano further explained that the aircraft’s designs and colors are a representation of the Caribbean; the sea, fishes and the face of a Caribbean woman; are all elements that portray this region. One of them also creatively showcases the names of several of the most requested destinations; Vieques, Culebra, Tortola, Anegada, and Virgin Gorda.
As part of the new launch, Air America also updated its website and ventured into social networks to achieve greater increase of clientele.
The chief executive officer of Aerostar Holdings, Agustín Arellano, applauded the investment of Air America and stated that the Caribbean market is a great potential for the airline.
“The investment made by Air America has allowed the company to increase its flights within the Caribbean. This represents an operational increase for the Luis Munoz Marin International Airport which will promote travel to the popular destinations in the Caribbean,” said Arellano.
According to Feliciano Air America has experienced an increase of 23% in operations since they acquired the company in December 2014.
