INTRO: A New AirSXM Portal

Dear friends and clients,

The past two months now, I have been building up momentum in anticipation of the launching the new AirStMaarten airline reservation system. I had written about how I started out in 2006 selling seats on a shared charter at the St. Barths Gustavia Airport and how that processed evolved to an exclusively online presence with the website as the main engine driving our concept of a virtual airline business model.

Last month, I had explained that the evolution of the website would entail it turning into a portal, giving clients, travel agents and other service providers in the travel, hospitality and service industry the unmitigated ability to reserve or book flights and charters with and through AirStMaarten.

Here is a peek and preview of the new homepage design:

AirSXM Homepage Design Mockup

The new AirSXM website and portal will be very simple to understand, yet very powerful. From the new AirSXM website you will still be able to request reservations using the old AirSXM reservation request system, but more importantly, you will be able to choose to book our flights and charters directly online via the new AirStMaarten online booking engine. That will be a major improvement in our service delivery to our existing clients and new customers alike.

Internally, we will be able to make reservations from our back-office and also from our future call-center. The new system also offers our handling agents the ability to make reservations from their airport counter desk. Finally, travel agents, hotel concierge desk clerks, VIP Services agents and even corporate account clients will also be able to access our reservation system via their own agent logins. Interesting to note, the new AirStMaarten online booking engine also supports multiple languages. This is the case for both the agents login and the online booking engine.

More info coming soon in the next issue. In the meantime.....

Happy Readings!

Air Turks & Caicos Changes its Name

interCaribbean Airways re-branding

PROVIDENCIALES, Turks & Caicos Islands/PRNewswire/ – Air Turks & Caicos, the national airline of Turks & Caicos Islands announces the changing of its name to InterCaribbean Airways.  The “interCaribbean” name was chosen to reflect the greater Pan-Caribbean expansion of air service in the Western Caribbean in the coming months.  With this a new slogan adopted to reflect the mission…. Connecting you and the Caribbean.

For the first time, travelling between the islands of Western Caribbean may take an hour or two instead of a day or two. For years the ability for business and leisure explorers to travel between the islands has been nearly impossible. With the forthcoming expansion of air services, the citizens, residents and visitors will be able to travel faster and easier to create new business and leisure opportunities.

Mr. Lyndon Gardiner, the chairman of Air Turks & Caicos said “it is important for us to capture the life and the color of the Islands.  We believe our new brand and colors represent all of the Caribbean.” Air Turks & Caicos selected design firm, Lila Design Associates, to create the development of the new brand. “An important part of this process was to translate the airline’s vision in producing a Pan-Caribbean brand that reflects the route expansion and growth of network plans.” says Norbert Lambriex, the founding partner and creative director of Lila Design. The lively and joyful Caribbean colors are renowned worldwide and should be recognized while our brand matures into a timeless and powerful image. The logo represents elements of the sea, air, palm trees and flamingos.
