Celebrating Jetair’s inaugural flight on the Curaçao – Aruba route
Jetair Caribbean is celebrating the start of yet another new route—this time, between Curaçao and Aruba. The inaugural flight marked the opening of the seventh destination on the airline’s schedule. To celebrate this special occasion, the Government of Curaçao, the Curaçao Tourist Board (CTB), Curaçao Airport Partners (CAP) and Curaçao Airport Holding (CAH), held a reception at the Curaçao International Airport. Speakers at the reception included Minister of Economic Development, Mr. Ruisandro Cijntje, as well as the Minister of Traffic, Transportation and Urban Planning Mr. Charles Cooper, Managing Director of Jetair Caribbean, Mr. Antonio Ribeiro, Jetair Caribbean CEO Mr. Robert Maas and Director of Air Service Marketing & Development at Curaçao Airport Partners, Mrs. Peggy Croes.
At its first arrival from Aruba, the aircraft received the traditional water salute. This new Jetair route will allow for more tourists from Aruba to come and experience the unique product Curaçao has to offer, while at the same time expanding the travel options available to locals. Jetair will be operating this route four times a week, twice on Mondays and twice on Fridays, with an 80-seat capacity Fokker 70.
The Government of Curaçao, the Curaçao Tourist Board (CTB), Curaçao Airport Partners (CAP) and Curaçao Airport Holding (CAH) want to congratulate Jetair, wishing them all the best with this new destination.
