Ramiz seriously considering a charter company for Curacao

Nelson RamizWILLEMSTAD – According to Nelson Ramiz, former consultant for Dutch Antilles Express (DAE), after the airline was declared bankrupt, ticket prices skyrocketed drastically. He gave an example with the route Curacao – Santo Domingo. Ramiz said that if before passengers were paying about 300 dollars for a ticket to Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic, now a two way ticket cost about 520 dollars. This has a negative impact on the economy of Curacao and this is thanks to the Government, Ramiz declared.

Considering these facts, Nelson Ramiz is seriously contemplating to start a charter company here in Curacao. According to the airline executive, he will use his own aircrafts which are now being operated by his own company Falcon Air Express in Miami, Florida. At this moment Falcon has a fleet of several MD-80’s. The company will acquire more of these types of aircrafts but also two Airbus A320 which can operate on the routes proposed by Ramiz. The charter company will begin with the routes Curacao, Miami, Aruba and Bonaire. More routes will be added afterwards.

Ramiz proposes to use the same structure model as Falcon is currently using on its Miami – Puerto Rico route. According to the Falcon executive, this model can work perfectly between the ABC islands.

Ramiz also said that if everything goes as planned he will be able to hire several former DAE employees. Not all of them but good number of them.
