Codeshare agreement between KLM and Winair
PHILLIPSBURG - The St. Maarten-based Winair will launch in 2017 a codeshare agreement with the Dutch aviation company KLM. This makes it easier for passengers to travel between Europe and several Caribbean destinations.
KLM may offer Caribbean destinations Winair under its own KL flight code and Winair can connect its flights to KLM’s international destinations. “Customers of both companies will benefit from it,” says CEO Michael Cleaver of Winair. The Caribbean airline offers flights to Dominica, Guadeloupe, Nevis, Saba, St. Barths, St. Maarten, St. Eustatius, St. Kitts and Tortola. It is operated with a fleet of smaller aircraft, Twin Otters.
The closer cooperation between KLM and Winair has yet to be formally approved by the relevant authorities.
