Bahamasair copped the top spot of Best Caribbean Airline at the World Travel Awards at Sandals Royal Bahamian resort on Monday night. Bahamas Managing Director Tracy Cooper told reporters at the event that the award is a testament to the hard work of the airline’s staff and the importance of the airline to Bahamians and The Bahamas’ tourism industry.
“On behalf of the airline we are so proud to receive this award,” he said.
“It shows the hard work that the employees at Bahamasair continue to do day in and day out, and it also outlines our importance in air transportation in and out of The Bahamas.”
According to Cooper, Bahamasair is one of only a few Caribbean airlines that services islands in the region, including Cayman Airways, LIAT, InterCaribbean and Caribbean Airlines.
“Bahamasair is here to stay,” he said. “We will continue to provide that valued transportation in and around The Bahamas, as well as being a contributor to our tourism industry. We understand our importance.
“We are pivotal for Bahamians getting around The Bahamas.”
Bahamasair was not by itself on the stage last night, as The Bahamas secured the top spot of the Caribbean’s Leading Luxury Island Destination. Sandals Emerald Bay Golf, Tennis & Spa Resort took the win for the Caribbean’s Leading Luxury All-Inclusive Resort 2020; Sandals Royal Bahamian Spa Resort & Offshore Island for The Bahamas’ Leading All-Inclusive Resort 2020; and Atlantis took home the awards for the Caribbean’s Leading Casino Resort 2020, Bahamas’ Leading Hotel Suite for its Bridge Suite and The Bahamas’ Leading Resort.
