AIA to celebrate one year of operations on Feb 14


The Argyle International Airport (AIA) will celebrate one year of operations on February 14, 2018.

To mark this first anniversary, some aviation enthusiasts based in London and San Francisco, with family ties in St Vincent and the Grenadines (SVG), have funded what appears to be one of the most spectacular LED chandeliers in the region.

The chandelier serves as an anniversary gift to AIA and is dubbed, ‘Vinci Love’.

The sponsors commissioned CALM5, out of Trinidad and Tobago, for the design and technical drawings of the chandelier.

CALM5 is established as a light designer and manufacturer of large custom-made LED chandeliers, fixtures and bulbs, under the brand ‘SUPERIOR LED’.

Carlos Leon Manickchand and Ian Brown of CALM5/Superior LED, representing the sponsors, will arrive in St Vincent on Friday, February 9, to begin assembling the AIA ‘Vinci Love’ chandelier,’ in collaboration with AIA’s electrical engineering team. The chandelier will be erected in Departure Check-in and will be officially turned on Valentine’s Day, Wednesday, February 14 at 2 p.m.

As part of the activities to mark AIA’s first anniversary, passengers arriving and departing AIA on February 14 will be presented tokens of appreciation, sponsored by the business community. The public is also invited to visit the AIA Interpretation Centre for guided tours, depicting the journey to completion of the Argyle International Airport.
