InterCaribbean Airways on Monday evening launched a new in-flight magazine, Cacique. The Turks and Caicos based company unveiled the magazine at a ceremony held at the new Provo Air Center FBO in Providenciales.
Speaking at the ceremony, General Manager Trevor Sadler said that the name of the magazine was inspired by the indigenous peoples of the islands and means “leader”. The magazine will feature people, sites and happenings from the territories into which the airline operates. It is not only available in print, but also in electronic form for those who choose that format.
The cover of the first edition features “Henry the Conch”, the local Tourism Ambassador and environmental hero. Melbourne Penn, creator of character, who was present to observe the magazine’s launch said “now that the island destination has attained number one in the world, it is time to become the number 1 in the world for cleanliness.”
The airline which has been in service for over two decades, began the re-branding process 18 months ago to reflect their vision to grow and connect the Caribbean region. The airline now flies to Jamaica, The Bahamas, Haiti, Dominican Republic and Puerto Rico.
Premier of the Turks and Caicos Islands Dr.Rufus Ewing who was present and spoke at the launching ceremony, expressed his pleasure that a Turks and Caicos company can rise to the challenge to solve the perennial problem of intra-regional travel.
General Manager Trevor Sadler in talking about the future plans of the airline hinted that the airline will be introducing a regional jet within the next 365 days.
