Insel Air starts fare war – DAE responds with lower fares

Nelson RamizWILLEMSTAD – Insel Air, in an attempt to recuperate lost market shares lost to DAE’s growth, starts a fare war by reducing their fares in all destinations competing with DAE .

DAE replies by lowering its fares even lower that those from Insel Air.

“If Insel Air thinks that we will allow them take away from DAE any market share earned by us or that this new attacks will scare DAE, they will have to rethink their strategy .... we will defend our market share and we will go after theirs on those markets that DAE is still not leading,” Ramiz commented.

“This is an all out war. I hope they are ready. We will increase our seat capacity and add two daily flights to Sint Maarten as soon as we get the second ATR-72 at the end of March of this year. So get ready to travel at super discount fares to Sint Maarten and to Haiti. There will be no more monopoly in those markets,” Ramiz further affirmed.
