LIAT’s Julie Reifer-Jones

“Typically everyone agrees that services such as water, electricity, hospitals, and fire services are essential…given the importance of LIAT to the economies of the region, calls for this service to be listed as essential (are) not unreasonable.” – Julie Reifer-Jones, Acting CEO, LIAT
“What’s happening with LIAT as it transitions from the aging Dash 8 fleet to the brand new ATR aircraft can only augur well for small hoteliers like us. The intra-regional market is very important to small hotels like ours. Regional airlines, from Cape Air to Seaborne and LIAT, help boost tourism and trade between the islands, and we are grateful for their efforts to improve lift while upgrading their customer service.” – Azmina Mawani, General Manager, Comfort Inn San Juan
“This is a crucial time for the Caribbean, as our hotels and destinations are battling for share of a global market. The good news for Caribbean Marketplace 2014 is that we are slightly ahead of 2013 registrations from supplier companies, and we will have buyer companies in attendance from 16 countries. This strong showing indicates that there is a growing interest in the Caribbean vacation experience.” – Jeff Vasser, Director General and CEO, Caribbean Hotel and Tourism Association (Travel Weekly)
“This conference is about demonstrating the power of (sports) tourism as a sustainable niche for the Caribbean. This is the first edition, but the objective is to travel around the Caribbean to demonstrate how (sports) tourism could contribute (to) tourism development – creating jobs, activities and opportunities for all.” – St├ęphan Carnier, Editor, CSport Magazine (Martinique) (Caribbean Journal)

“I welcome the return of Premier (Michael) Misick to the Turks and Caicos Islands, the home that he loves, and to his family and friends, who have all been praying for his safe return. Premier Misick will be processed and I trust that through the will of God, fairness and justice will prevail and the Rule of Law will be executed in a manner that is fair, respectful and transparent as it upholds his basic Human Rights.” – Dr. Rufus Ewing, Premier, Turks and Caicos Islands (Caribbean Journal)
