With the brand new 9000 ft. Argyle International Airport now in place, Consul General of St, Vincent and Grenadines to New York, H.E. Howie M. Prince, said his country would welcome the arrival of Greensboro North Carolina Dynamic International Airways planned service from JFK to the Eastern Caribbean island in the near future.
During an invited comment at an appreciation cocktail reception hosted by the partnership of Dynamic International Airways and Guyana’s Roraima Airways on March 9 at South Richmond Hill Zen Lounge, the diplomat said the ushering-in of the new alliance with the people of Guyana and Dynamic Int. Airways would foster the country’s development.
CG Prince recalled when the St. Vincent Ministry of Education needed mathematics teachers, the country turned to Guyana to educate students in primary schools, and stated that the two countries have had a long-standing relationship, and as such, thanked Captain Gerry Gouveir of Roraima Airways, Guyana, and Dynamic International Airways for the splendid job did of flying a 767 Boeing aircraft on Feb. 14, during the inauguration ceremony at Argyle International Airport.
He said, Argyle, a once small airport, hampered by heavy rainfall, and high wind, and formally accommodated only small planes and a few private jets, with flights to Trinidad, Barbados and Grenada, can now receive 767 aircraft.
Demonstrating with a miniature model Dynamic airplane in hand, Prince, who said he was in New York during the inauguration, but saw it all on video, moved the miniature plane into the air then in downward motion to show how the plane landed at Argyle International Airport, to cheers of some 50,000 Vincentians who had camped out from the night before to witness history.
“Our tourism office in New York has already received interests from travel agents and people from around the world, unrepresented, since the inauguration of Argyle International Airport.”
He called on entrepreneurs to invest in St. Vincent, since the island represents a new frontier for business. “We do not have any hotels with more than 200 rooms. If you are a hotel developer, there is prime space and opportunity for development.”
“Agro processing is waiting for development via a new bridge and gateway now that the new Argyle International Airport is open, and when airlines like Dynamic Int. Airways commences service.
“I want to thank Dynamic Airways and all those persons who have been a part of making sure that dream that we had, become a real reality, said CG Prince, who looks forward to a rich relationship between the Dynamic International Airways and St. Vincent and the Grenadines.
“We thank you from the bottom of our hearts,” he added.
