MIAMI, FL (PRWEB) April 04, 2014
The new Eastern Air Lines Group is proud to announce the sponsorship of Miami Fashion Week 2014, taking place from May 15th to 18th inside the Miami Beach Convention Center. Eastern Airlines announced earlier this year it will launch service from its Miami base in the next 12 months, subject to U.S. government regulatory approval.
“We are extremely pleased to be one of the sponsors of this years’ Miami Fashion Week, an event which has become an integral part of Miami’s fashion, as well as the arts and sports scene. Miami Fashion Week is internationally recognized as one of the trendiest events worldwide, and we are honored to be part of it,” said Ed Wegel, President and CEO of Eastern Air Lines Group. "Just as Miami Fashion Week has become synonymous with Miami, Eastern Airlines will also be strongly associated with the Magic City; where it was once the largest airline and had its headquarters for over 30 years.”
As part of Eastern Air Lines’ sponsorship, Miami Fashion Week 2014 has organized a competition among the top Miami-based fashion designers to design the company’s new flight attendant uniforms.
“To be part of the re-launch of Eastern Air Lines is very exciting for Miami Fashion Week and our locally based designers. Having the opportunity to design the new flight attendant uniforms, and be associated with such an iconic brand is a tremendous honor for us,” said Beth Sobol, Founder and President of Miami Fashion Week.
With one of the world’s most beautiful beaches and cruise destinations as the setting, Miami Fashion Week will showcase the world’s trendiest designers as they present their fashion masterpieces to international buyers, media and fashion trendsetters.
Eastern Air Lines filed an application with the United States Department of Transportation on Jan. 28th, 2014, for a Certificate of Public Convenience and Necessity, and plans on commencing its Part 121 certification with the Federal Aviation Administration shortly.
