Seaborne Airlines and 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. Seaborne’s headquarter offices are located in the World Plaza, one of the tallest and most emblematic commercial buildings in the business zone. The government of Puerto Rico made a strategic investment in Seaborne, closing in early 2014. Since that time, Seaborne and Puerto Rico have worked together to allow Seaborne to ‘spread its wings’ to 17 airports throughout the Caribbean. Seaborne operates as a codeshare partner to American Airlines, JetBlue Airways and Air Europa with interline connecting agreements with Delta Airlines, United Airlines and many other carriers.
Very soon, Seaborne’s brand will rise up in the busy Golden Mile District. Seaborne Airlines, the largest regional operator at the Caribbean’s largest connecting hub at San Juan’s Luis Munoz Marin International Airport has exemplified itself with high standards of customer service, operating all flights from San Juan with two pilots and a flight attendant on the comfortable 34-seat Saab 340 aircraft.
“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 reenergizing our anchor industries while fostering a services, exportation and knowledge oriented economy,” said Alberto Bacó Bagué, Secretary of Economic Development for Puerto Rico. “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,” said Bacó.
Seaborne, a Part 121 US Flag Carrier, 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”, said Gary D. Foss, CEO and President of Seaborne.
