President of Armas Shipping dies
#1
from Noticias:

Death of the Canarian businessman Antonio Armas, president of one of the largest shipping companies in Spain.
He was the continuation of a family saga of shipowners from the island of Lanzarote.
The president of Naviera Armas Trasmediterránea, Antonio Armas Fernández, has died this Tuesday, at the age of 78 and suddenly, as confirmed by the company through a statement. Son of the founder of the company, Antonio Armas Curbelo, he assumed the generational replacement of his father in 1968 and was a pioneer in 1973 in the introduction of roll-on vessels in the Inter-Island traffic of the Canary Islands.
Likewise, for 50 years he was responsible for the growth of the company, reaching different milestones such as the beginning of mixed passenger traffic or the acquisition of Trasmediterránea. In addition, the president of the shipping group received last year the Gold Medal of the Canary Islands 2021 in recognition of the 80 years of existence of the company.
