Sangster International Airport (SIA), Jamaica’s leading gateway to the world operated by MBJ Airports Limited (MBJ), was again named the Caribbean’s Leading Airport at the World Travel Awards (WTA).
SIA emerged as the winner from a pool of 13 Caribbean competitors nominated for the prestigious award. The accolade was first bestowed on SIA in 2005, again in 2009 and each year to date
“We are honoured to be named the Caribbean’s Leading Airport for the 15th consecutive year. This award is a testament to the dedication and tireless efforts of our entire airport team, and spans all agencies and team members who work diligently to ensure consistently high standards and service excellence. We remain steadfast in our efforts to transform Sangster International Airport to ensure a passenger-centric, sustainable, efficient and safe airport operation,” commented Shane Munroe, Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of MBJ Airports Limited.
As MBJ celebrates this win for the airport, it is also celebrating its 20th anniversary operating the Sangster International Airport. Over the 20 years, MBJ has made considerable investment in the development and transformation of the airport to improve the overall infrastructure and passenger experience.
The VIP evening held at the Sandals Grande St Lucian on August 26 was attended by travel industry leaders from across the Caribbean and The Americas, in acknowledgement of organisations spearheading the growth of the region’s travel and tourism sector.
As Graham Cooke, Founder, World Travel Awards, notes: “World Travel Awards has maintained its position as the industry leader for the past 30 years, consistently proving its value as the global benchmark for recognising excellence in travel and tourism.”
MBJ has extended congratulations to the many winners of awards in the Jamaican travel and tourism industry, some of which operate at SIA.
“Our gratitude extends to our passengers, partners, stakeholders, and the entire community. Together, we will continue to elevate the travel experience and contribute to the growth and advancement of Jamaica’s Travel industry,” said Munroe.
