InselAir said it has met all of the regulatory requirements for the certification of its McDonnell Douglas aircraft.
The airline in recent months has been operating between the ABC island and Sint Maarten with Fokker 50 aircraft, which officials call its “Basic” service scenario. The addition of its McDonnell Douglas aircraft is the first step toward a “Basic Plus” scenario, which will strengthen its financial stability, the airline said last week.
InselAir is planning to restore service to its former destinations gradually.
“InselAir will continue its plan to move towards the ‘Optimum’ scenario in which the number of destinations will be further expanded as well as the connectivity within the region,” the airline said in a news release.
The airline started operating the McDonnell Douglas aircraft on daily flights between Curaçao and St Maarten.
“InselAir wants to express its gratitude to the Civil Aviation Authorities and all InselAir employees that were involved in the extensive process of bringing the MD back into operation and we are excited by the return of our offering of jet services to our customers,” the airline said in a news release.
