St. Maarten Airport gives loving welcome on Valentine’s Day

POSTED: 02/10/12 2:13 PM

St. Maarten – Arriving passengers will step out to the sound of music, assorted Valentine’s Day gifts for some lucky couples and an atmosphere of love and friendliness as the Princess Juliana International Airport rolls out the red carpet for them starting at noon on February 14. The event is an initiative of the Managing Director Regina Labega.

The “Meet and Greet” area of the airport will be dressed up for Valentine’s Day, with the well-known Sopranos Piano Bar – St. Maarten providing appropriate music for the occasion on a baby grand piano. The piano will be set up on a stage specially decorated with red and white balloon columns and intertwined balloon hearts, courtesy of Unique Balloon Décor, which has collaborated on several major projects with PJIA in the past. Passengers may request the pianist to play their favorite songs for their loved ones from a song book. The Sopranos Piano Bar has already carried out a similar performance at Schipol Airport in Amsterdam with great success.

It will also be gifts galore for the passengers as some 200 heart-shaped chocolates from chocolate specialist, the Jeff de Bruges store, will be distributed in decorative baskets to both arriving and departing passengers in the vicinity. The Jeff de Bruges store, which also operates at PJIA, has donated two boxes of assorted chocolates to be won by two lucky couples chosen at random. Similarly, the Penha Perfume store, with a branch at the airport, has offered two baskets of his and hers perfumes and beauty products as a special gift for two arriving couples. The Swatch store, also with a branch at the airport, has contributed a beautiful Swatch bracelet for another lucky passenger arriving on Valentine’s Day at PJIA. The recipients of the gifts will be chosen by the staff of the Marketing Department of PJIAE, headed by Kalifa Hickinson, with representatives of the sponsors in attendance where possible.

PJIA personnel have not been forgotten in this Valentine’s Day largesse. They will be able to obtain a whopping 20% discount on all perfumes bought at the Penha Perfume store at the airport.

“Valentine’s Day is an international event and the whole initiative is meant to enhance the atmosphere at the Princess Juliana International Airport for our visitors and employees alike in recognition of this day marked globally. I guess you can say that on Valentine’s Day, love is in the air at PJIA,” Managing Director, Regina Labega said.
