    TRINIDAD - New CEO for Caribbean Airlines?
    Nov 3 2011(just before BK)

    PORT OF SPAIN, Trinidad -Trinidad and Tobago?s Newsday newspaper is reporting that a new chief executive officer is soon to take over the reins of Caribbean Airlines.

    Newsday says officials at at CAL?s Iere House headquarters in Piarco have remain tightlipped over the issue since there has been no official word about the appointment of Pedro Fabregas as the new CEO.

    According to the Trinidad newspaper ?Fabregas, whose most recent position was president and CEO of American Eagle in Puerto Rico, has spent more than 27 years in the industry starting off as a ticket counter clerk with American Airlines at the Munoz Marin International Airport in San Juan, Puerto Rico.?

    Fabregas progressed quickly through a number of management positions at American Airlines, including passenger service, ramp service and facilities maintenance.

    In 1998, he moved to Executive Airlines, which operates the Eagle operations in San Juan, as director, Finance and Administration. In 2002 he was made director Sales, Marketing and Planning and later moved up to vice-president of Finance and Planning and chief financial officer.

    Newsday quotes Peter Bowler, a former president and CEO of American Eagle, as saying that Fabregas is an ?excellent executive.? He said Fabregas was passionate about the growth of travel and tourism in Puerto Rico and the Caribbean.

    ?He has tremendous energy and integrity and strives every day to provide safe, quality service to our customers, to motivate our people and to improve the profitability of our company. Pedro will not only be a great leader for Executive Airlines, he will be a great advocate for Puerto Rico and the region,? added Bowler.

    During his early years at American, Fabregas worked his way through college to earn a Business degree at the University of the Sacred Heart in Puerto Rico. Later at the University of Miami?s School of Business he earned a Masters of Science in Professional Management (MSPM).

    He said, ?MSPM is one of the most well-respected programmes in Latin America. It?s full of talented individuals who thrive on discussing their corporate, cultural, political and economic ideas and issues.?

    CAL’s first ATR delayed in France as it’s still under trials By Vernon Khelawan Thursday, November 3 2011 Delivery of Caribbean Airlines’ first of nine brand new turbo prop ATR aircraft has been delayed by two weeks. The aircraft was originally planned to be handed over to CAL officials on October 24, leaving Toulouse, France on October 28 and arriving in Trinidad on October 31.

    Last Thursday David Vargas ATR’s media relations manager told Newsday, “the aircraft was not departing Toulouse tomorrow (Friday).” He said the aircraft was “still under trials.” However, sources in Trinidad said the delay had something to do with parts while it was still on the assembly line.

    The aircraft, which will be registered in Trinidad as 9YTTA, is now expected to leave Toulouse on November 10 and arrive at Piarco on November 13. No time frame for its arrival has as yet been established. Whether this initial delay would create a similar delay for the handover of the second aircraft, (registration 9YTTB), due by the end of December, is not known.

    It is expected a technical team from CAL would be in Toulouse to receive the new plane. CAL pilots have been at the ATR factory undergoing training in flying the aircraft and it is expected a local cockpit crew would fly the airplane to Trinidad. Also at the factory is CAL engineer Fazal Ali, who has been getting acquainted with the aircraft. He too, will fly back on the new plane.

    Schedule for delivery for the remaining seven aircraft is one every month from February 2012. It is understood five of the seven aircraft would remain in Trinidad and Tobago, to service the airbridge and other planned services to islands in the southern Caribbean. At present CAL is operating, under wet lease, two ATR-72-500 aircraft on its airbridge and southern Caribbean services.

    The new planes, all ATR-72-600s has a capacity of 70 seats and are expected to gradually replace the present Dash-8-300 fleet now being operated by CAL on the airbridge and some of its other short haul services.

    Meanwhile mum’s the word at CAL’s Iere House headquarters in Piarco about the new chief executive officer, soon to take over the reins of the “two brands-one airline” State-owned carrier.

    Officials remain tightlipped over the issue since there has been no official word about the appointment of Pedro Fabregas as the new CEO.

    Fabregas, whose most recent position was president and CEO of American Eagle in Puerto Rico, has spent more than 27 years in the industry starting off as a ticket counter clerk with American Airlines at the Munoz Marin International Airport in San Juan, Puerto Rico.

    “I was 18, had never stepped inside a plane, but I knew I had found my passion,” he said in an interview a few years ago.

    Driven by strong ambition, Fabregas progressed quickly through a number of management positions at American Airlines, including passenger service, ramp service and facilities maintenance.

    In 1998, he moved to Executive Airlines, which operates the Eagle operations in San Juan, as director, Finance and Administration. In 2002 he was made director Sales, Marketing and Planning and later moved up to vice-president of Finance and Planning and chief financial officer.

    Peter Bowler, a former president and CEO of American Eagle, described Fabregas as an “excellent executive.” He said Fabregas was passionate about the growth of travel and tourism in Puerto Rico and the Caribbean.

    “He has tremendous energy and integrity and strives every day to provide safe, quality service to our customers, to motivate our people and to improve the profitability of our company. Pedro will not only be a great leader for Executive Airlines, he will be a great advocate for Puerto Rico and the region,” added Bowler.

    During his early years at American, Fabregas worked his way through college to earn a Business degree at the University of the Sacred Heart in Puerto Rico. Later at the University of Miami’s School of Business he earned a Masters of Science in Professional Management (MSPM). He said, “MSPM is one of the most well-respected programmes in Latin America. It’s full of talented individuals who thrive on discussing their corporate, cultural, political and economic ideas and issues.”

    A former executive of the now defunct BWIA, predecessor to Caribbean Airlines, asked about how he felt about CAL going back to foreign leadership said, “I have no problem with it, provided he is allowed to do his job without interference.”
