The Sapphire Pegasus Award is a symbol of gratitude for the superb performance in an industry segment where mediocrity is unacceptable. The award was introduced to the region during the Caribbean Aviation Meetup in St Maarten June 13-15.

“Based on expert advice and the long record of outstanding performance, we decided that The Bahamas should be awarded for the excellent promotion of the Caribbean over a longer period of time in the business aviation industry,” said Antonia Lukacinova, founder of the Sapphire Pegasus Awards.

“It is not just about the presence and presentations at international conferences and exhibitions, but also about the available online information and hardcopy documentation. The explanations are so well done and comprehensive that they hardly leave an opening for questions. We believe that this needs to find international recognition and honoring.”

Director general in the Bahamas ministry of tourism and aviation Joy Jibrilu was presented with the award on Tuesday, June 13, during the Caribbean Aviation Meetup in St Maarten. She also delivered the keynote address at the aviation conference.

“I am excited and thrilled by the announcement that The Bahamas has won the award for our outstanding promotion in business aviation. We at the Bahamas Ministry of Tourism and Aviation work tirelessly to create new strategic partners in key markets across the world to increase airlift and new routes to the country. That is our goal. We also go above and beyond to promote our destination and position ourselves as the best in the region. As a team, we have accomplished many mammoth tasks and this award is vindication of that hard work. Thank you,” Jibrilu said.

The Sapphire Pegasus Awards are a unique series of international business aviation awards and are given for the outstanding performance by companies or individuals in the business aviation sector.

The finalists are nominated by companies and individuals in the business aviation sector. The Sapphire Pegasus Awards started out by recognizing the outstanding performance of companies, teams and business individuals from the EMEA region and Russia. This is the first year that four awards are being given out for excellence in the Caribbean.
