[www.inewsguyana.com] – Caribbean Airlines Limited (CAL) has reaffirmed its commitment to Guyana after several Executives from the company paid a courtesy call on Minister of State, Joseph Harmon on Thursday, September 03, 2015.
According to the Ministry of the Presidency, the visiting team included Chief Executive Officer, Michael DiLollo; Head of Corporate Communications, Dionne Ligoure; Vice President of Commercial Operations and Customer Service, George Reeleder; Area Manager, South America Roy Ferguson and Sales Executive, Guyana and Suriname Dion Inniss.
Minister Harmon said that despite challenges, CAL has provided “invaluable service” to Guyana. The Minister took the opportunity to point out to the group that Guyana in 2016 will celebrate 50 years of being an independent nation, which will “involve many Guyanese from the diaspora coming home to be part of the celebrations”, thus making air travel a challenge.
According to the Ministry, Harmon declared that the government looks forward to the expansion and quality of service which CAL provides.
The CEO of the Company, Michael DiLollo explained that the carrier’s operation in Guyana has recorded an “increase in on-time performance”, an achievement the company is proud of.
DiLollo revealed that changes have been made at the airline which allowed CAL to provide jobs for about 40 persons here; a move he believes came about because of the company’s commitment to Guyana.
He reassured Minister Harmon that CAL is committed to, and will make arrangements to facilitate and accommodate the demands of 2016 which is expected to be a peak year of travel to Guyana. He noted too that customer service focus and on-board services will change for the better, offering a more superior service than is currently offered.
