In spite of the recent recession, Harlequin has had a truly amazing year: the first luxury destination, Buccament Bay Resort in St Vincent and The Grenadines, has, according to holiday operators, enjoyed record levels of bookings for the region, along with great feedback, reviews and press coverage; several hotels and resorts are currently being developed in the Caribbean by Harlequin Developments; in fact, the company continues to grow in every way, always chasing its Chairman’s indefatigable ambition.
Growth, however, is meaningless if it doesn’t contribute to improvement (and there is always room for improvement). As successful as Buccament Bay Resort has been in its first year, we at Harlequin have listened and identified a key area for investment: transport. Connecting flights to St Vincent are short but the waiting times can be disproportionately long if left to commercial airlines. Consequently, Harlequin has taken the initiative and will soon be literally flying high via its own airline, Harlequin Air, which is expected to be operating by early 2012.
Based in St Lucia, Harlequin Air will provide an exclusive service for guests at Harlequin’s Caribbean hotels and resorts; but the service won’t stop at delivering swift and seamless transfers between islands for transatlantic flights. Guests will also be able to utilise the fleet for excursions and visits to other hotels and resorts. Additionally, there are plans to establish a scheduled service between St Lucia and Puerto Rico for Harlequin’s growing number of US-based guests.
Here are the flight times guests can expect:
St Vincent to Barbados: 45 minutes
St Vincent to St Lucia: 20 minutes
St Vincent to Puerto Rico: 160 minutes
Barbados to St Lucia: 45 minutes
Puerto Rico to Barbados: 170 minutes
Puerto Rico to St Lucia: 145 minutes
The first plane is currently having the “Harlequin treatment”, which involves being: liveried with full Harlequin colours; decorated with ”Harlequin blue” carpet; and fitted with cream leather seats with the Harlequin logo emblazoned in the headrests.
Official photos are on the way, but in the meantime, here are some candid ones taken
For Harlequin, the sky isn’t the limit, it’s just another step forward.
