NAD Celebrates 10 Years of Partnership and Operations at LPIA

Nassau Airport Development Company (NAD) today marks a milestone, celebrating 10 years of operating Lynden Pindling International Airport (LPIA) under a partnership with Vantage Airport Group and the Government of The Bahamas.

NAD began an anniversary countdown earlier this year, celebrating with a number of community activities. The private operating company also shared, on its website and social channels, a series of highlights and achievements that have helped make LPIA one of the top-ranked airports in the region. More recently, NAD recognized long-serving employees, a group of more than 60 people who have worked with the company since it was inaugurated in 2007, during a well-attended event at New Providence Community Church.

To further mark the occasion, Vantage Airport Group is gifting to NAD a custom art piece to be displayed at LPIA. The work will be created by local artist, Dede Brown, and will consist of several hundred fish painted in vibrant hues to capture the beauty and diversity of Bahamian sea life. It will be installed in a central, high-traffic area and will complement the airport’s existing art pieces that work together to create a uniquely Bahamian sense of place.

“It is a matter of great pride for me to share in this commemoration and celebration of this significant benchmark for the Lynden Pindling International Airport,” said the Honourable Glenys Hanna Martin, Minister of Transport and Aviation. “The last ten years have seen tremendous growth and enhancement such that our airport has distinguished itself not only in the region but globally for its beauty and standards of excellence.”

“NAD’s operations have transformed LPIA into a world-class facility that provides a welcoming first and last impression for our passengers,” said Vernice Walkine, CEO of NAD. “I am so proud to celebrate this anniversary and the success of our airport, which is due in large part to the power of this partnership, the strength of our operations and the expertise of our employees.”

“Vantage is delighted to share in this anniversary and commemorate a decade of operations at LPIA,” said George Casey, Chair and CEO of Vantage Airport Group. “Our partnership has led to a best-in-class facility with a high-performing team that drives innovation and best practices. The result is that LPIA has a well-deserved reputation as a leading airport in the region. I’d like to thank the Government of The Bahamas for placing their trust in us to operate this important gateway airport.”
