InselAir says it is planning to focus on inter-island service between Aruba, Bonaire, Curaçao and St. Maarten.
As a result, the airline is dropping service to and from several destinations, including Havana, Miami and Quito, Ecuador.
“Inter-island services to Aruba, Bonaire, Curacao and St. Maarten will remain in place,” the airline said in a news release. “As soon as aircraft will become available again InselAir will look into re-launching some of its routes. In this case passengers will be informed accordingly.”
The move comes as the Aruban Civil Aviation has grounded InselAir’s McDonnell Douglas aircraft on that island. According to a report on CuraçaoChronicle.com, the airline is looking to eliminate its InselAir Aruba division.
“InselAir regrets that it is forced to take these measures and sincerely apologizes for the inconvenience caused,” the airline said in a news release. “InselAir’s teams will do their utmost to inform and support the affected passengers.”
Cities the airline will not serve for now are from Barquisimeto, Venezuela; Caracas, Venezuela; Georgetown, Guyana; Haiti; Havana, Cuba; Kingston, Jamaica; Las Piedras, Puerto Rico; Manaus, Brazil; Medellin, Colombia; Miami; Paramaribo, Suriname; Port of Spain, Trinidad and Tobago; Santo Domingo Dominican Republic; and Quito, Ecuador.
The airline said it hopes to resume regular service by June.
