Nevis tourism chief challenges Windward Island Airways

first_img Share 57 Views   no discussions LifestyleTravel Nevis tourism chief challenges Windward Island Airways by: – October 6, 2011 Share Tweetcenter_img Sharing is caring! Share Image via: flickr.comCHARLESTOWN, Nevis (NIA) — Chief executive officer (CEO) of the Nevis Tourism Authority (NTA) John Hanley has challenged Windward Island Airways (Winair) to find a way to offer its passengers lower fares, to help stimulate travel demand. He was at the time delivering remarks at a reception hosted by the airline recently in celebration of its 50th anniversary. He said, though the airline had accomplished much over its 50 years, it was important for them to do even better than before.“I challenge Winair to do all in its power to improve vital customer service excellence. I challenge Winair to continue to recognise the importance of punctuality and reliability while flying your deserving and discriminating passengers. I challenge Winair to be better corporate citizens by partnering with social and humanitarian causes in the five destinations it serves.“I dare say that only when Winair is in a position to rise to the occasion and address these critical challenges that I have just mentioned, then and only then will they have the fortitude and competitive advantage which will ensure their survival in these difficult times,” he said.While Hanley congratulated the airline on its milestone, he registered hope that they would continue to provide an air bridge to St Maarten for Nevisians and their guests for many years to come.He said Winair had been important to Nevis over the past 30 years and adequate air connectivity was one of the most critical factors affecting the survival of the destination and the island’s tourism industry.“Winair has been providing a high level of convenience to our locals and tourists alike, with direct connection to St Maarten for shopping, for onward connections with over a dozen major airlines servicing North America, Latin America as well as Europe.“Winair’s service has, for the most part, been reliable and punctual. Considering the fact that Winair flies to some of the smallest and most difficult little airports in the world, the airline must be very highly commended for its impeccable safety record,” he said. Meantime, general manager of the airport at Newcastle Steven Hanley in brief remarks also noted the travelling public’s confidence in the airline over its 50-year and its exemplary safety record.“As history shows Winair has proven their track record in safety. In the golden year of their existence, this remarkable airline has also demonstrated that no horizon is so far that it cannot be attained,” he said.The airport manager explained that his association with Winair had spanned 22 years so far, first as a passenger then as an air traffic controller and now as airport manager. He noted that the fact that the airline had survived the test of time, the uncertainty of passenger traffic numbers, administrative changes and challenges and modifications to schedules and destinations was testament to its resilience and its core staff.However, Hanley also issued a challenge to Winair as it entered its 51st year of operations and another to Nevisians.“Continue to be the faithful bridge over the waters between Nevis and St Maarten and the other Netherlands Antilles. Equally I challenge the Nevis public; let us repay the faithfulness of this airline with our continued support – Fly Winair,” he said. Winair celebrated its 50th anniversary with a reception at each of its destinations.Caribbean News Nowlast_img read more

Palmer disappointed by Rory no-show

first_imgFor the second year in succession, Arnold Palmer has expressed his disappointment that Rory McIlroy has decided not to play in the PGA Tour event bearing his name this week. Press Association McIlroy had considered adding Bay Hill to his schedule following his much-publicised struggles this year, but shot a closing 65 in the WGC-Cadillac Championship won by Woods and will play just once more at the Houston Open at the end of the month before the US Masters in April. center_img Twelve months ago, McIlroy had just been deposed as world number one by Luke Donald when the European pair were absent from the prestigious Arnold Palmer Invitational at Bay Hill. McIlroy could again be knocked off the top of the rankings by defending champion Tiger Woods, but the 23-year-old has stuck with his original schedule. Palmer said: “I was kind of kidding when somebody said is he playing? And I said, well, if he doesn’t, I’m going to break his arm. But it was meant in jest, and it was strictly a passing remark. Frankly, I thought he was going to play, and I was as surprised as a lot of people when he decided he was not going to play. I’ve had conversations, brief conversations with him some time ago, not recently, about his playing.” last_img read more

PCP: Can Pats make playoffs?

first_imgZetlin:Tom Brady is done for the season. Now what?This situation reminds me a lot of the 2001 Patriots season, when the Jets’ Mo Lewis knocked quarterback Drew Bledsoe out of the game with a devastating hit along the sideline. In trotted a former sixth-round pick from the University of Michigan, a guy who was never really the clear-cut starter for the Wolverines. Who was that, you ask? You might have heard of him. His name is Tom Brady. And the Pats beat the Rams in the Super Bowl later that season. The rest is history.So do I think Matt Cassell is the next Brady? No. Not even close. But with this offense, Cassell doesn’t have to be a superstar; he simply needs to manage the team. He has all the options an incoming quarterback could ask for with Randy Moss — the most talented wide receiver in the game — and Wes Welker, who hauled in 112 receptions last season.The offense will suffer with the loss of Brady, but look for running back Laurence Maroney to emerge as the premier back New England hoped he would become when they drafted him in the first round in 2006.Plus, the Pats have the easiest schedule in the entire NFL this season. They still have one of the best front sevens in football. And oh yeah, the best coach in the league, Bill Belichick wears his infamous hoodie on their sideline.I agree, the AFC East is now wide open, but the Pats are still the team to beat.What, you think some no-name quarterback can lead the Jets to the division title? Dream on.Mason:When Tom Brady went down with a knee injury that was later revealed to be season ending, the entire New England area went on suicide watch.Simply put, Brady has been the face of the franchise since he took over as the starter in 2001. Since then, he’s been named the Super Bowl MVP twice and, oh yeah, the Patriots won the big game three times in that span as well.You can try to point to all the talent the current Patriots team had, but the fact of the matter is the 2001 championship roster doesn’t hold water to today’s. Troy Brown is not Randy Moss. Antowain Smith is no Lawrence Maroney.And now, Matt Cassel is — and never will be — Tom Brady. That’s why the Pats will miss out on the playoffs in 2008 for the first time in six seasons.Look at Cassel’s track record: Before Sunday’s game, in which he came in to replace Brady, he had thrown 39 NFL passes. In his college days at USC, he was a backup to a pair of Heisman Trophy winners, Carson Palmer and Matt Leinart.I’m not ready to totally write New England off. I still think an 8-8 or maybe 9-7 season could be in the works for the Pats. As Derek mentioned, their schedule isn’t exactly daunting.And that “no-name” quarterback on the Jets Zetlin alluded to? He knows a thing or two about how to win and should lead New York to the division title, finally overthrowing the mighty Patriots dynasty.A lifetime backup filling in for an idol? Not buying it. I hope the Patriots have high-def TVs for watching the playoffs.last_img read more

Lacrosse travels north for conference series

first_imgJunior attacker Izzy McMahon moves around a Hofstra defender at McAlister Field Feb. 9. (Michelle Mankoff/Daily Trojan) There is no individual Trojan in the top 100 rankings of goals per game, showing that they boast a well-balanced attack in the game with an offense that can dominate in many ways. After facing Cal on Saturday, USC will travel to face the Cardinal on Monday. Stanford is coming off wins over Oregon and Cal after suffering an upset loss to No. 23 Colorado at home. This season five Golden Bears are in double-digit goals, led by senior attacker Kirsten Swanson and senior midfielder Eliza Christman, each boasting 20 goals.   At the midway point of the lacrosse season, the No. 13 Trojans look poised to make a late season run for the conference title and national championship.   “Our team plays to win, yet no win is achievable without trust in one another on both ends of the ball,” Miller said. No team in the NCAA has more players scoring double-digit goals than USC with its seven players. The Trojans also have eight players in double-digit points (goals and assists), tied for most in the NCAA. With an intense set of matches this weekend, the Trojans hope not to repeat that feeling and that their hard work from these past few weeks reflects their performance this weekend against Cal Saturday at noon and Stanford Monday at 4 p.m. Senior defender Jackie Gilbert pushes her way through two Hofstra defenders in USC’s home opener at McAlister Field Feb. 9. (Michelle Mankoff/Daily Trojan) The Trojans have had a successful record against the Golden Bears, with their last game ending in favor of the Trojans, 17-3. That victory has brought USC’s overall record against Cal to a six-game win streak, four of which are double-digit victories for USC. “After the NCAA selection show last year, we all sat in a room upset after not [hearing] USC called,” Stallings said. This weekend match against Cal will mark the 10th regular season match for USC. Last week, No. 23 Colorado and No. 19 Stanford snapped the Golden Bears’ four-game win streak. Last year, USC split games with Oregon, winning the first matchup 9-8 in overtime and losing the second 11-18. On Sunday, the Trojans blew the Ducks out 14-5. USC put up five goals in the first seven minutes, never allowing the game to get close. The Cardinal are the fourth ranked opponent the Trojans have faced this season. USC currently owns 17 all-time wins over ranked foes (17-27) with an all-time meeting record of 5-6 against the Cardinals. This year’s team is much improved from the 2018 team that lost to Stanford in the Pac-12 Championship and missed the NCAA championship. The 2019 team is balanced offensively and defensively, ranking No. 21 in scoring offense and No. 19 in scoring defense. “One of our main goals this year is to take each day at a time,” sophomore midfielder Emily Stallings said. “We have to focus on ourselves every practice and not who we play that weekend. We also have aspirations to win the Pac-12 and make it to the NCAA tournament.” USC is currently ranked No. 20 in the IWLCA coaches poll and has held a ranking on the poll for 47 consecutive weeks. It will look stay on the polls this weekend as it takes on familiar foes No. 19 Stanford and Cal. Junior Kerrigan Miller, the reigning Pac-12 midfielder of the year who led the team in scoring last year, currently ranks seventh on the team in scoring. She still leads the team in caused turnovers and ground balls and is second in draw controls. Her ability to play a role as offensive facilitator without being the leading scorer shows the completeness of this USC team. Past matches against the Cardinal have not always ended in favor of the Trojans, especially last season, when their devastating loss cost a chance to compete in the final NCAA tournament. last_img read more
