The Sapphire Pegasus Award organizers announced that four Awards will be presented for outstanding performances and accomplishments at the Caribbean Aviation Meetup on St.Maarten in June 13-15.

The announcement was made during the Sapphire Pegasus annual Gala Dinner and Award Celebration in Prague, Czech Republic on Friday. The audience of aviation and media professionals applauded and praised the initiative. In St.Maarten, the Awards will be presented during the Award Evening of the Meetup conference on June 13 at Sonesta Maho Beach Resort.

Contrary to the Gala Event in the luxury Boscolo Hotel in Prague, a once Neo-Renaissance palace, the event in the Caribbean will be held on the white beach sands of the Sonesta Palm Grill, under palm trees and an exotic evening sky as an expression of the authenticity of the region.

I am pleased that we can introduce the Sapphire Pegasus Awards in a unique manner to the Western Hemisphere at an event in the Caribbean,” comments Antonia Lukacinova, Founder of the Sapphire Pegasus Award, CEO of Media Tribune, and publisher of Aviation Times magazine. “I myself have been part of business aviation developments over a significant period of time and was able to monitor how outstanding performances evolved and excellent results were achieved. I felt that the creation of an original award to honor excellence in the industry was appropriate. I have put a lot of thought into it and carefully conceived this Award three years ago. I’m pleased to see it is finding worldwide appreciation.”

The Sapphire Pegasus Award is a symbol of gratitude for the superb performance in an industry segment where mediocrity is unacceptable. The Award has been accepted as an asset of its own kind in the industry and already finds worldwide attention. In Europe, the professional business aviation organizations EBAA, BACA, RUBAA, CEPA and AFBAA are supporting partners of the event.

The Sapphire Pegasus trophy is created out of the worldwide unrivalled Bohemian crystal by the glass masters of the famous Moser Glassworks in Karlovy Vary. Moser provides a unique aesthetic experience through works of crystal that have timeless artistic value associated with a high utility value.
