InselAir Fokker 50

InselAir yesterday suspended its flight services to several destinations, as a result of the grounding of part of its fleet. 

“As a direct result of the continued grounding of a part of InselAir’s fleet by the Aruban Civil Aviation Authorities InselAir has no choice but to temporarily suspend services to the following routes starting Wednesday, March 8, 2017: Barquisimeto, Caracas, Georgetown, Haiti, Havana, Kingston, Las Piedras, Manaus, Medellin, Miami, Paramaribo, Port of Spain, Santo Domingo and Quito”, the airline said in a statement.

The airline also said that its inter-island services to Aruba, Bonaire, Curacao and St. Maarten will remain in place. As soon as aircraft become available again InselAir will look into re-launching some of its routes.

InselAir expects to return to regular operations again by June of this year.

Last December, InselAir approached the Government of Curaçao to ask for an extension of the state aid to help the financially-stricken airline.
