WILLEMSTAD – On Monday December 15th, InselAir relaunched it’s 20th destination Trinidad & Tobago with an festive early breakfast at Curacao International Airport followed by the inaugural flight to Piarco International Airport in Port of Spain. The flight was operated with a Fokker 70, with 80 seats, which was acquired by InselAir earlier this year. InselAir will operate flights from Curacao to Port-of-Spain 3 x per week; on Mondays and Thursdays departing Curacao at 10:30AM and arriving in Trinidad at 12PM. On Tuesdays the flight leaves at 4:15PM and arrives in Trinidad at 5:45PM which provides business travels a perfect schedule for a 2-day business trip.
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 Curacao 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 Curacao. We are able to transport an increasing amount of passengers throughout the Pan American region due to the increasing scale of our network”, says Lippinkhof. “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. From Trinidad for instance, through Curacao, passengers have a seamless connection to Amsterdam via KLM, ” ends Lippinkhof.
