Freeport. August 1,
2013 – SkyBahamas Airlines has announced
plans to offer significant airfare reductions for Grand Bahama residents and
visitors traveling between Freeport and Ft. Lauderdale.
According to the company’s CEO/President, Captain Randy
Butler the company’s Directors made a decision to reduce air travel during the
month of August to Two Hundred and Ninety Nine Dollars ($299.00) to facilitate
the “hassle free” travel of passengers between the two destinations. In spite of recently announced additional taxations
being imposed by the government on local and domestic carriers, Captain Butler insists
that the company’s response will still be to continue it’s legacy of putting people
before profits, and heralded that this “airfare drop is a continued demonstration
of the airline’s appreciation and commitment to the people of Grand Bahama.”
Since beginning operations under its current leadership five
years ago this month, the “Cacique Award Winning” SkyBahamas brand has been
recognized as a pace-setter in customer service, route development, community
support and industry advocacy.
Three years ago, the company expanded its route offerings by
introducing direct flights between Freeport and Ft. Lauderdale, and offered its
clients with the convenience of a relatively “hassle free” experience between
the Freeport Terminal and Terminal 4 at the Ft. Lauderdale International Airport.
Many industry stakeholders have applauded the airlines airfare decrease announcement, indicating that
most airlines actually hike fares during the busy summer months to take
advantage of the increase in passenger loads.
SkyBahamas has done the opposite.
Captain Butler responded that “this is what innovative companies
do. Rewarding passenger loyalty always
results in the eventual benefits of customer retention and sustained profits”
This airfare reduction at present is extended through the
month of August, and can be booked through the company’s website www.skybahamas.net , calling the Company’s
Reservations Center at 377-8993 or visiting a preferred travel agent.
