Good evening,

Since the start of ALM, the Curaçao – St. Maarten -Curaçao route has been operatedby all former Curaçao airline companies.

As it is a very traditional route because our constitutional ties established in the former DutchAntilles. Because of our history, our islands have deeply rooted relationships resulting in family and business-related travel.

Jet Air 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 1 hour and 20 minutes.

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, Jet Air will be connecting St. Maarten with the Dominican Republic, Haiti, Jamaica and Colombia either via Curaçaoor 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 air crafts.

Thank you very much. Robert Maas
