Seaborne Logo to Fly in San Juan’s Golden Mile
SAN JUAN – Seaborne Airlines and the the Puerto Rico Infrastructure Financing Authority (PRIFA) have entered into an agreement to install Seaborne’ s corporate logo on the 23rd floor of the exterior frontal façade of the World Plaza Building in Hato Rey, where Seaborne’ s headquarters are. The government of Puerto Rico made an investment in Seaborne, closing in early 2014. Since then, Seaborne now flies to 17 airports throughout the Caribbean. It operates as a codeshare partner to American Airlines, JetBlue Airways and Air Europa with interline connecting agreements with Delta Airlines, United Airlines and other carriers.
“We saw the potential of the deal with Seaborne for Puerto Rico, and Seaborne saw the big opportunities that Puerto Rico has to offer as a business destination. It is another example of how we are re-energizing our anchor industries while fostering a services, exportation and knowledge-oriented economy,” stated Puerto Rico Economic Development Secretary Alberto Bacó Bagué. “Now everyone will be able to see that Seaborne’s headquarters are here in Puerto Rico, that they believe in us and that they are part of Puerto Rico’s economic transformation,” he added in the published announcement Monday.
“We are pleased of our joint efforts with Seaborne Airlines to make possible their operations in Puerto Rico, choosing the World Plaza as its headquarters. The property, owned by PRIFA, provides the airline a strategic location in Puerto Rico’s Golden Mile to run its business as one of the largest airlines of the Caribbean. It also secures the airline’s growth as part of Puerto Rico’s aerospace ecosystem,” Grace Santana, executive director of PRIFA, stated in the announcement.
Seaborne is the only commercial airline operating with the Puerto Rican flag on its fuselage. “This is just another step forward as we continue to build upon the success Seaborne is experiencing in Puerto Rico and throughout the Caribbean,” stated Gary D. Foss, CEO and president of Seaborne.
