The Argyle International Airport (AIA), celebrates one year of operations on 14th February.
To mark this first anniversary, a small group of aviation enthusiasts, based in London and San Francisco, with family ties in Saint Vincent and the Grenadines, has funded what appears to be one of the most spectacular LED chandeliers in the region. The chandelier serves as an anniversary gift to the 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 design and manufacturer of large custom made LED chandeliers, fixtures and bulbs, under the brand ‘SUPERIOR LED’. Mr. Carlos Leon Manickchand and Mr. Ian Brown of CALM5/Superior LED, representing the sponsors; will arrive in Saint Vincent on Friday 9th February, to begin assembling the ‘Vinci Love’ chandelier,’ in collaboration with the AIA’s Electrical Engineering team. The chandelier will be erected in 'Departure Check-in', and will be officially turned on, on Valentine’s Day, Wednesday 14th February at 2:00 p.m.
As part of the activities to mark the AIA’s first anniversary, passengers arriving and departing the airport on 14th February, will be presented with 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.
