InselAir eyes used A319s for network expansion
WILLEMSTAD - InselAir’s Chief Executive Officer, Albert Kluyver, says his airline is looking to add an undisclosed number of used A319-100s to its fleet as it prepares to expand its route network.
The local carrier currently serves various Caribbean islands, the United States, Colombia, Venezuela, Suriname, northern Brazil and Guyana using a fleet of six Fokker 50s, three MD-82s, and one MD-82 with an overall average fleet age of 24.8 years.

InselAir also operates an Aruban subsidiary, Insel Air Aruba, whose own fleet consists of three Fokker 70s, one MD-82, and two MD-83s making for an overall mean age of 20.7 years.
