Caribbean Airlines Invaders Steel Orchestra will make its debut on the local carnival scene on Sunday, April 23. The group will be part of Bacchanal Jamaica’s road march band which will make its way throughout the Corporate Area streets.

“Caribbean Airlines is all about connecting people and carnival is an integral part of who we are as a region. From the moment you board a Caribbean Airlines flight, the festivity and authentic Caribbean experience begins. We are delighted to share the sounds of one of Trinidad and Tobago’s oldest steel bands, Caribbean Airlines Invaders Steel Orchestra, with the people of Jamaica,” said Alicia Cabrera, senior marketing manager of Caribbean Airlines.

As part of the visit, Caribbean Airlines Invaders Steel Orchestra will welcome arriving passengers on Saturday, April 22, at Norman Manley International Airport in Kingston.

“We are looking forward to giving Kingston a special musical treat, when we entertain passengers on their arrival at Norman Manley International on Saturday. We are also excited to appear on the road as part of the parade on Sunday, and showcase the infectious sound of steel pan, with the revellers,” said Michael Dinchong, managing director of Caribbean Airlines Invaders Steel Orchestra.

In addition to featuring its steel pan, Caribbean Airlines also supported Jamaica’s Ministry of Tourism “Carnival in Jamaica” initiative with marketing promotions in Fort Lauderdale and New York. The airline’s “Jamaica Wanna Jam” events on Hollywood Beach, Fort Lauderdale, and at Green Acres Mall, New York, attracted hundreds of prospective travellers and four lucky winners, won trips to Jamaica to experience carnival. The Jamaica Tourist Board and the Jamaica Hotel and Tourism Association partnered with the airline for the promotion.
