Seaborne Airlines to brand iconic building in Hato Rey
Seaborne Airlines and the Puerto Rico Infrastructure Financing Authority announced Monday they have entered into an agreement to install Seaborne’ s corporate logo on the 23rd floor of the exterior frontal façade of the iconic World Plaza Building in Hato Rey.
Seaborne’ s headquarters are located in the building considered one of the tallest and most emblematic in the business zone.
“This is just another step forward as we continue to build upon the success Seaborne is experiencing in Puerto Rico and throughout the Caribbean,” Seaborne President Gary D. Foss.
The government of Puerto Rico made a strategic investment in Seaborne, closing in early 2014. Since that time, Seaborne and Puerto Rico have worked together to allow the air carrier to ‘spread its wings’ to 17 airports throughout the Caribbean.
Seaborne operates as a codeshare partner to American Airlines, JetBlue Airways and Air Europa with interline connecting agreements with Delta Airlines, United Airlines and many other carriers.
Constructed in 1972, the architectural design of the World Plaza remains one of the most striking views in the skyline of The Golden Mile. It also holds an important place in the business history of Puerto Rico, having shared another legendary name, Banco de Ponce, exactly where Seaborne will display its brand “soon,” company and government officials said.
“We saw the potential of the deal with Seaborne for Puerto Rico, and Seaborne saw the big opportunities that Puerto Rico has to offer as a business destination. It is another example of how we are reenergizing our anchor industries while fostering a services, exportation and knowledge oriented economy,” said Alberto Bacó, secretary of Economic Development and Commerce.
