“We are Pioneers”

For the past 25 years, the success of The Registry of Aruba has been its ability to adapt, evolve, and grow along with the aviation industry.

Hailing from the island nation of Aruba, part of the Kingdom of the Netherlands in the Caribbean, along with Bonaire and Curaçao, The Registry of Aruba has been hard at work to establish itself as one of the world’s premier aircraft registries. The autonomous status of the island of Aruba is globally recognized as a jurisdiction providing ICAO-compliant regulations with flexible service.

By integrating into the local Aruban economy, working with its stable parliamentary democracy and pioneering the innovative registration through domicile model (a practice that allows foreign legal corporate entities to register their aircraft in Aruba, utilizing their current company structure) The Registry of Aruba has a solid competitive advantage in the aircraft registration industry.

“Our clients are like family.” —Jorge Colindres (Chairman & Founder of The Registry of Aruba). When the registry was first created, it deliberately established itself as a private company, adhering to all government standards, but also available for customer support 24/7/365. By not having to adhere to bank or public holidays and government shutdowns, The Registry of Aruba’s availability isn’t limited to rigid business hours. There is a global mentality that is integrated into the fabric of the business that operates across all time zones around the world.

“We are Pioneers . . . Aruba’s always been known to think outside the box . . . Whatever the client’s needs, we will find a way to make it happen.”

For the past 25 years, the success of The Registry has been its ability to adapt, evolve, and grow along with the aviation industry; many times, as the pioneers. By maintaining a diverse and inclusive work environment, the organization has continuously fostered innovation, incorporating technology early on, like the Aircraft Registration Management System (A.R.M.S.), a system that allows the registry to electronically manage all registered aircraft, operators, and documentation. It has also developed a system that aids in streamlining workflow, cataloguing information, and quickly accessing records to provide urgent assistance when needed.

These values pay tribute to a wide range of professionals, believing that the growth of the individual in a role will, in turn, grow the business. The evidence of personal growth elevating the business couldn’t be made more clear than b the example that is set by the Chief Operating Officer, Alexandria Colindres.

Alexandria is one of the small but growing number of women assuming executive roles in the aviation industry. For her, this is family business, having grown up around aviation, it was natural for her to pick it up. She also recognizes the influence and support she has been given by other women in the industry as mentors and colleagues who have guided her path to success.

Although Alexandria has a master’s degree in the Arts and was formerly responsible for managing Spinello Projects, one of Miami’s most reputable art galleries, she now oversees the daily operations of The Registry of Aruba while fostering relationships with clients and developing leads for new clients across continents.

Alexandria is a keen business adviser with in-depth knowledge of the aviation industry and has been awarded the Sapphire Pegasus Business Aviation Award for Young Talent/Start-Up. For an industry in which people like her are few and far between, she hopes her accomplishments will serve as an inspiration to colleagues for making a difference in the industry with a strong knowledge base and admirable work ethic.

“You need to build a relationship of trust with your clients; they are not just customers. They are an extension of our family. They are what keep us going. Building on these personal relationships is fundamental to our success.”

The key to her success has been the culture of her organization, maintaining a boutique-style operation with personalized service that suits clients’ needs. With this approach, she has been able to develop new markets, applying the global mentality and building lasting relationships with clients who often refer new business.

Alexandria’s commitment to cultivating strong relationships with clients, team members, executives, and the community have been essential to the growth and success of the registry of Aruba and its stellar reputation within the aviation industry. This drive to connect and accommodate makes a tremendous difference while servicing clients, as the registry can be more responsive, offering 24/7 support and expedited service.

With its corporate offices based in Miami, dubbed “The capital of the Americas,” the organization is nested in a strategic global hub for business, commerce, and trade, and harbors the next generation of Pioneers for the aviation industry, making it an ideal partner for establishing a lasting aircraft registry partnership.
