AEROMEXICO ANNOUNCES THE START OF SERVICE TO TWO NEW DESTINATIONS IN CENTRAL AMERICA AND THE CARIBBEAN

●Starting on November 2 and 10, Aeromexico will start to serve the Punta Cana and Liberia markets, respectively, from Mexico City. ●With these new routes, the airline will offer service to ten destinations in Central America and the Caribbean

Mexico City, June 07, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Aeromexico, Mexico’s global airline, announces the start of service on two new seasonal routes to Central America and the Caribbean from Mexico City. Punta Cana in the Dominican Republic and Liberia in Costa Rica are the new destinations that the carrier will add to its route network as of November 2 and 10 this year, respectively.

 

Aeromexico has served the Central American market for more than 11 years, and currently offers one flight per day to Santo Domingo in the Dominican Republic and two flights per day to San Jose in Costa Rica, two countries that are steadily increasing their bilateral trade relations with Mexico.

 

Punta Cana, located on the east side of the Dominican Republic, is the perfect destination for travelers who want to enjoy the unique beaches, white sand, and turquoise waves that make this place a paradise. With its all-inclusive hotels, casinos, nightlife and 11 golf courses located along the coast, this destination offers all the amenities required to enjoy and disconnect.

 

For its part, the Dominican Republic has become Mexico’s leading investment destination in the Caribbean, and in 2017, the two nations created the Mexico-Dominican Republic Binational Business and Services Chamber (Cámara Binacional de Negocios y Servicios México-República Dominicana, A.C., CABIMEX-RD) to promote trade and investments between both countries.

 

On the other hand, Liberia, located in the province of Guanacaste, Costa Rica, features a wide variety of visitor services, such as hotels, restaurants, local cuisine, and nightlife. This destination is considered a reunion point in Guanacaste, as it permits easy access and travel to unique ecotourism spots, such as beaches on the Pacific Ocean and the country’s national parks.

 

Mexico is the second country on the American Continent with the highest foreign direct investment in Costa Rica, after the United States. There are currently 37 Mexican companies with operations in that destination. Mexico and the United States signed a Free Trade Agreement in 1994 that has made it possible to expedite trade, which in recent years has grown at an average rate of eight percent per year.

 

Aeromexico will serve both routes with two flights per week utilizing its Embraer 190 aircraft with 99 passenger seats, with 11 in Clase Premier, the Aeromexico business class cabin.

 

The flight schedules are as follows:

 

Mexico City – Punta Cana**

AM 2654 11:30 p.m. 6:10 a.m. Friday, Saturday

 

Punta Cana – Mexico City**

 

AM 2655

*Times published are local to each country and are subject to changes without notice.

**From November 10, 2018 through April 21, 2019.

 

Aeromexico’s Chief Revenue Officer Anko van der Werff said “These routes represent the hard work Aeromexico is doing to offer a better product to our customers, as this will be the first time that Mexico City is connected directly to Liberia and Punta Cana. Our clients will also be able to travel to or leave the Dominican Republic and Costa Rica through either of their two destinations, further strengthening connectivity options to provide a unique travel experience.”

 

Thanks to the opening of these new destinations, Aeromexico increases its offer to leisure routes for its customers, featuring the best schedules to connect Mexico, the United States, and Canada with Punta Cana and Liberia.

 

 

 

Aeromexico in Central America and the Caribbean

 

  • First destination in Central America: Honduras since 2007.
  • First destination in the Caribbean: Havana since 2010.
  • Aeromexico will now offer flight services to a total of ten destinations in Central America and the Caribbean, including El Salvador, Guatemala, Havana, Honduras, Nicaragua, Panama, San Jose and Liberia in Costa Rica, and Punta Cana and Santo Domingo in the Dominican Republic.
  • The carrier started to serve the San Jose, Costa Rica market in 2010 and currently offers two flights per day to this destination.
  • Aeromexico started to serve the Santo Domingo market in 2016 and currently offers one flight per day to this destination.   
  • The airline offers close to 210 flights per week that connect Mexico with Central America and the Caribbean, with more than 23,000 seats per week.
  • During 2017, Aeromexico carried 16% more passengers between Mexico, Central America, and the Caribbean, compared to 2016.

As the recovery continues following the impact of last year’s hurricanes and tourism opportunities grow in the Caribbean, Spirit remains committed to its support and growth in the region.  St. Croix is the airline’s 13th destination in the Caribbean. In the past several months, the airline has launched service to its second destination in Haiti, Cap-Haïtien, as well as resumed service to the island of St. Maarten.  Spirit also recently expanded seasonal daily service from Fort Lauderdale to Kingston, Jamaica.

“Congratulations to Spirit Airlines for their continued growth and success at Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport.  Since their first flight here 25 years ago, Spirit has carried more than 60 million passengers,” said Mark Gale, CEO and Director of Aviation at Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport. “The addition of St. Croix demonstrates Spirit’s commitment and great partnership by offering connectivity between the Caribbean and the South Florida area.”

With Spirit’s expanding network, the airline continues to improve its on-time and Guest satisfaction performance, while building upon its larger commitment to invest in the Guest experience.  The airline recently announced state-of-the-art high-speed Wi-Fi connectivity will be installed on its entire fleet by summer of 2019.  Recent Department of Transportation data shows Spirit Airlines among the top carriers for on-time performance and baggage handling.  Guests can learn more about Spirit’s pledge to keep improving at InvestInTheGuest.com.

THE FUTURE OF AIRPORTS AS CIVIC SPACES

May 21, 2018

THE FUTURE OF AIRPORTS AS CIVIC SPACES

The European Cultural Centre and Global Art Affairs Foundation invited Fentress Architects and North Carolina State University College of Design to participate in the 2018 Venice Architecture Biennale May 26-November 25, 2018, at the historic Palazzo Bembo.

Denver, Colo. – May 21, 2018, May 21, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) —

Architecture students from North Carolina State University College of Design will join Fentress at the Palazzo Bembo to present their designs for airports of the future. Fentress has been guiding students in preparation for the exhibition, which allows 11 students to embark on a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to travel to Italy for the 2018 Venice Biennale of Architecture. Their designs will be featured in the “Time Space Existence” exhibit, offering the public a glimpse at the future of airport design. The students are participating in an Airport Design course with Principal in Charge of Design Curt Fentress, FAIA, RIBA, and Alumni Distinguished Professor of Architecture Wayne Place, Ph.D. that focuses on designing airports that reflect the context and culture of their location.

Fentress helped create the NC State University College of Design airport design studio in 2013. The studio focuses on airports as a building type that establishes civic spaces. Students are challenged to design airports for various locations around the world. As part of this process, student design teams research the culture, climate, and terrain of their chosen location. By the end of the course, students know how to implement flexible design strategies to create world-class airports that reflect a sense of place.

Curt Fentress, FAIA, RIBA, is an alumnus and valuable supporter of the College of Design. “It’s very exciting to see how these architectural minds are transforming the future of airport design,” says Curt Fentress. Graduate student Cameron Westbrook, who is currently participating in the studio, says, “It’s been a good experience to work with Fentress Architects. It’s been eye-opening because there’s so much technology and so much planning to incorporate within the early stages of designing an airport. It can be overwhelming, but it also puts us in a position to want to know more. They [Fentress] are also very encouraging.”

Invited by the European Cultural Centre and Global Art Affairs Foundation, Fentress Architects will return to the 2018 Venice Biennale of Architecture to present Now Boarding – Fentress Architects: Airports as Civic Spaces. Fentress made its debut at the Biennale in 2016 with its Now Boarding exhibition, celebrating the past, present, and future of airport design. This year the firm’s exhibition will feature airports as civic spaces, showcasing the concept of humanism flowing through airports. Through the use of film, photographs, and models, the exhibition showcases the transformation of the passenger experience in contemporary airport design. The concept of airports as civic spaces is explored through Fentress designs for five airport terminals:

•  South Terminal Complex at Orlando International Airport (MCO)

•  Incheon International Airport (ICN)

•  Seattle-Tacoma International Airport (SEA)

•  Denver International Airport (DEN)

•  Tom Bradley International Terminal at Los Angeles International Airport (LAX)

About the Biennale

The Venice Biennale is one of the most prestigious international cultural events in the world. By inviting the world’s leading design thinkers, visionaries, and makers, the Biennale consistently cultivates a progressive voice that inspires, advocates, and connects a global audience. The Biennale and associated exhibitions are hosted throughout the island of Venice, imbuing the city’s historic past as an international center for arts and culture with modern significance, while maintaining Venice’s status as a premier destination. All told, over a quarter million people visited the last Architecture Biennale, with millions more accessing the exhibition via press and other media.

About Palazzo Bembo

Now Boarding – Fentress Architects: Airports as Civic Spaces and the College of Design exhibition will be featured at the historic Palazzo Bembo, overlooking the Grand Canal and just steps from the centrally-located Rialto Bridge. The Palazzo was built by the noble Bembo family in the 15th century, and its architectural style reflects the Venetian influences of its original period and those from subsequent restorations. Among the ancient families of Venetian aristocracy, the Bembo lineage includes saints, leaders, heroes, and writers. The Bembo font, a popular serif typeface, traces its origins to the family.

About the North Carolina State College of Design

The NC State College of Design prepares students for a career in design through interdisciplinary engagement, innovative exploration of technologies, and a core foundation of design thinking and practice. The College of Design offers undergraduate, graduate, Doctor of Design [DDes], and Ph.D. in design degrees and currently has 850 enrolled students. NC State University is a leading public research university located in Raleigh, North Carolina. In response to an ever-expanding global interest in all disciplines of design, the College’s curriculum incorporates relevant practices reflecting both the University’s research, its number one status in the state, and its land-grant mission. Effective design requires attention and sensitivity to the social, economic, political, cultural, and behavioral understanding of the environment and people. Our graduate and undergraduate programs in Architecture, Art + Design, Design Studies, Graphic Design, Industrial Design, and Landscape Architecture are intended to de­velop a designer’s perception, knowledge, skills, and problem-solving abilities to develop design solutions for public interest, to serve the needs of all users, and to impact the myriad of sustainability and life-quality problems across the globe.
