Accepting the award on behalf of the airline, Alicia Cabrera, Senior Manager Marketing at Caribbean shared, “This fourth win really cements our position as the region’s premier carrier. That the category is judged based on travel industry professionals voting makes it even more prestigious as our customers and travel agent partners clearly recognise the tremendous effort put forth by the staff to make each flight special.”
Commenting on the title, World Travel Awards founder Graham Cooke said, “I am delighted Caribbean Airlines has been recognised by our voters as the Caribbean’s Leading Airline for the fourth consecutive year; an honour of which they are truly worthy. It was to recognise outstanding tourism stakeholders such as Caribbean Airlines that we founded World Travel Awards in 1993. Now, as we celebrate our 20th year, WTA continues to reward those who continue to drive our industry forward.”
