Caribbean Airlines Invaders Steel Orchestra

CAL continues exclusive sponsorship of Invaders

From its beginnings 75 years ago under a breadfruit tree at the Manette family’s Port of Spain home, Invaders Steel Orchestra has become one of Trinidad and Tobago’s most iconic steel bands, and Caribbean Airlines knows a good thing when they hear it. Ahead of the steel orchestra’s 2015 Panorama Finals berth, the airline confirmed continuation of its exclusive sponsorship of the band, which will see Invaders Steel Orchestra serving as cultural brand ambassadors during the Trinidad Carnival season and at events in Guyana and Jamaica.

“There is no doubt that Invaders is an indelible part of the Carnival past, present and future. The band represents the very best of our culture, our heart and our aspirations and it is an honour for Caribbean Airlines to be part of that experience,” said George Releeder, Vice President Commercial.

For the duration of the Carnival season, Invaders will perform at Piarco International Airport to welcome arriving passengers with the signature sounds of the steel pan. “Pan is T&T’s gift to the world and Invaders is blessed to have been part of its journey from ‘rags to riches’. Today with the meaningful assistance of Caribbean Airlines we continue to proudly promote our national instrument both at home and abroad,” said Michael Dinchong, Managing Director of CAL Invaders Steel Orchestra.

After boosting its schedule with additional flights, Caribbean Airlines is reporting 100 percent bookings during the Carnival season. Founded in 2007, CAL employs approximately 1600 personnel, operates 22 aircraft with over 600 weekly flights into the Caribbean, North and South America and the UK.  It is a member of the International Air Transport Association (IATA).

Season’s greetings from MEP!

It was “tipsy tart” and Christmas luncheon time again for us yesterday and today, and with that MEP closes for the holidays and re-opens on Monday 5th January.

We’ll be in and out, though, and checking email and social media (though with less frequency), so you can still reach us if there’s anything urgent.

In the mean time, we wish all our clients and supporters a holiday season filled with peace, love and prosperity, and a happy, healthy 2015!
