- InselAir, on 15 December, began a thrice-weekly (Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays) service between Curaçao (CUR) and Port of Spain (POS) in Trinidad & Tobago. The 850-kilometre route will be served with the airline’s 80-seat Fokker 70s and faces competition from Surinam Airways’ four weekly flights. Piarco International Airport in Port of Spain becomes the airline’s 20th destination. Jurgen Lippinkhof, Chief Commercial Officer of InselAir, addressed the audience in Trinidad and explained the relaunch of the route. “We see an increasing demand from not only Curaçao and Trinidad, but also from Aruba and Bonaire and from our destinations in Venezuela. This is a good example of InselAir’s strategic hub function on Curaçao. We are able to transport an increasing amount of passengers throughout the Pan American region due to the increasing scale of our network. More and more passengers from within the Pan American Region are getting used to our large network and therefore often choose InselAir to connect to their final destination. Through strong collaborations with our partner airlines, such as KLM/Air France, Avianca and GOL, passengers from all InselAir destinations are able to reach destinations in South America, Europe, North America and even Asia.”
