ImageHoliday Inn Resorts Aruba & Jamaica were among the many proud sponsors of The Dempsey Challenge, a non-competitive race in which participants are challenged to cycle, run or walk to raise funds in support of The Patrick Dempsey Center for Cancer Hope & Healing. The Dempsey Center provides free support, education and wellness services to cancer patients, survivors and caregivers. The event held recently in Lewiston, Maine raised more than $1 million.
Anguilla’s Wallblake Airport over the Holiday season continued to show quiet resilience, creating confident optimism with the arrival of private jets attributing to the increase in US visitor arrivals, an indication that the challenging economic environment may have given way to pent-up demand and cautiously optimistic economic news. Fixed based Operator, Lloyds Aviation, proudly boasted one of their busiest days to date (January 2, 2010) handling some 37 jets including Gulfstreams 4s and 5s, Falcon 900s, Citations, Lear Jets, Challengers, Hawkers, Astras, Embraer 135s, Global Expresses and Galaxies. The activity began in late December 2009 and continued through the first half of January 2010 with celebrity and VIP passengers staying at the signature luxury resorts and renowned super villas that dot the island. Anguilla Air Services and Trans Anguilla continue to offer daily inter-island connections while Anguilla Air Express offers executive charter flights via San Juan, Puerto Rico.
