AIRPORT–Princess Juliana International Airport SXM won the Bizz Amea award for 2017, the World Confederation of Businesses WorldCOB Board of Directors announced at a gala ceremony held at Burj Al Arab Hotel in Dubai, United Arab Emirates, late in December.


  Bizz Amea is considered the most important business award in the world. It is presented by WorldCOB to the most outstanding companies and businesspeople in each country. The award was introduced to recognise business excellence and is meant for small, medium and large enterprises.

  “I am humbled by yet another accolade received by the airport,” said Airport Chief Operations Officer (COO) and acting Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Michel Hyman. “I think the staff and stakeholders at our airport are also very proud to receive this recognition and we look forward to receiving many more, following our rebuilding process in the aftermath of Hurricanes Irma and Maria.”

  The Airport also received the Bizz 2016 award in Washington D.C., among several other previous awards of excellence, including the Best Caribbean Airport for 2016 by the Caribbean Journal. WorldCOB organises the Bizz business awards ceremony each year, bringing together the leading companies in different countries to celebrate this recognition and offer a series of benefits to the winners, who become elite members, taking part in activities that will help them to adopt new commercial relationships.

  The Bizz recognised the airport as a company continuously seeking to guarantee quality for constant development at its own scale.

  “We will continue to work diligently to upgrade our facilities and services and make SXM Airport the leader in Caribbean aviation in accordance with our mission statement and the pride of St. Maarten,” concluded Hyman.
