Sapphire Pegasus Award to be introduced to island

AIRPORT–The Sapphire Pegasus Award organisers have announced that four awards will be presented for outstanding performances and accomplishments at the Caribbean Aviation Meetup in St. Maarten June 13-15.

The announcement was made during the Sapphire Pegasus annual Gala Dinner and Award Celebration in Prague, Czech Republic, on Friday. The audience of aviation and media professionals applauded and praised the initiative. In St. Maarten, the awards will be presented during the Award Evening of the Meetup conference at Sonesta Maho Beach Resort on June 13.

Unlike the Gala Event in the luxury Boscolo Hotel in Prague, a once neo-renaissance palace, the event in the Caribbean will be held under palm trees and an exotic evening sky on the white beach sands of Sonesta Palm Grill, as an expression of the authenticity of the region.

“I am pleased that we can introduce the Sapphire Pegasus Awards in a unique manner to the Western Hemisphere at an event in the Caribbean,” said Antonia Lukacinova, founder of the Sapphire Pegasus Award, CEO of Media Tribune and publisher of Aviation Times magazine.

“I myself have been part of business aviation developments over a significant period of time and was able to monitor how outstanding performances evolved and excellent results were achieved. I felt that the creation of an original award to honour excellence in the industry was appropriate. I have put a lot of thought into it and carefully conceived this award three years ago. I’m pleased to see it is finding worldwide appreciation,” said Lukacinova.

The Sapphire Pegasus Award is a symbol of gratitude for superb performance in an industry segment where mediocrity is unacceptable. The award has been accepted as an asset of its own kind in the industry.

The second annual Caribbean Aviation Meetup will be hosted by Princess Juliana International Airport SXM. The Meetup is a conference platform that accommodates a new attitude towards positive development and impact of airlift. The event is appealing to a significant number of professionals in the aviation and tourism industries within the region and abroad.
