Celebrating Jetair’s Inaugural Flight on the Curaçao – Sint Maarten Route
WILLEMSTAD- February 2, 2020 – The inaugural flight of Jetair Caribbean’s new Curaçao – Sint Maarten route was celebrated in a pleasant atmosphere at the Curaçao International Airport. Speakers at the reception included the Director General at Curaçao Civil Aviation Authority Mr. Hans de Jong (in lieu of the Minister of Traffic, Transportation and Urban Planning), Managing Director at Jetair Caribbean Mr. Antonio Ribeiro, CEO of Jetair Caribbean Mr. Robert Maas, Deputy Director at Curaçao Tourist Board Mr. Hugo Clarinda, CEO of Curaçao Airport Partners Mr. Ralph Blanchard and Senior Partnership & Communications Executive at Curaçao Hospitality & Tourism Association Ms. Jihan Hammoud.
This inaugural flight marks the first commercial flight operated by the airline. After obtaining their AOC in November of 2019, Jetair started out with charter flights. The airline’s aim is now to continue expanding their flight schedule with more routes from the Caribbean and South America.
Jetair will be flying on Sundays and Wednesdays, departing from Curaçao at 4:50 p.m. and arriving in Sint Maarten at 6:30 p.m. The return flight from Sint Maarten will depart at 7:15 p.m and arrive in Curaçao at 8:55 p.m. The flights will be operated with a 80-seat capacity Fokker 70. This new service offered by Jetair will allow more visitors from Sint Maarten as well as other Caribbean islands connecting through Sint Maarten to come and experience the unique product Curaçao has to offer: including beautiful beaches, a rich culture, the island’s history, its architecture, a variety of tourist attractions, entertainment and, most of all, our friendly people. At the same time, this also expands the travel options available to the local population.
The Government of Curaçao, the Curaçao Tourist Board (CTB), Curaçao Airport Partners (CAP) and the Curaçao Hospitality and Tourism Association (CHATA) want to congratulate Jetair, wishing them all the best with this new flight.

Other Stakeholders and Colleagues
Since the start of ALM, the Curaçao – St. Maarten – Curaçao route has been operated by all former
Curaçao airline companies.
As it is a very traditional route because our constitutional ties established in the former Dutch Antilles.
Because of our history, our islands have deeply rooted relationships resulting in family and businessrelated travel.
Jetair Caribbean is no exception and will continue with this tradition. For that reason, we are here today
to celebrate our inaugural flight into St. Maarten and to maintain this connectivity between our islands.
Jetair Caribbean will be operating this route with two Fokker 70 (F70), jet aircraft with seating up to 80
passengers and a flight time to and from Curaçao of 1hour and 20minutes.
We hope that with our addition to this route we can offer all the St. Maarten passengers more options
when choosing to travel to and from the Caribbean and south America.
In the near future, besides Curaçao, Jetair will be connecting St. Maarten with the Dominican Republic,
Haiti, Jamaica and Colombia either via Curaçao or point to point. We hope this will be a start of a very
stable and fruitful route and we hope to see you on board on one of our aircrafts.
Thank you very much.
