Plasterk wants subsidy on air tickets Windward Islands
THE HAGUE, PHILLIPSBURG - Minister Plasterk of Kingdom Relations submitted a proposal on Friday to parliament to subsidize tickets from Saba and St. Eustatius to St Maarten.
This system should make it possible to visit the doctor in St. Maarten for the poorer inhabitants of the islands. Simultaneously Plasterk wants to investigate whether there are any cheaper fast ferry connection between the islands.
Subsidizing tickets is incidentally not just possible, as this is seen by Europe as an aid to an airline.
