FOL until 2021 in Curaçao and Aruba

FOL BaseWILLEMSTAD – The American Forward Operation Location (FOL) has extended its contract with the Dutch Kingdom for the use of the airports in Curaçao and Aruba by five years. The Americans can now stay until November 2, 2021.

This is according to the Minister of Foreign Affairs Bert Koenders. The agreement between the two countries expired this month. Last year the Americans already asked for a permit to stay for at least another five years.

U.S. Authorities, earlier this month, agreed to the provisions of the agreement. Through the FOL facilities, the U.S. fight against drug trafficking in the Caribbean. This drug is generally destined for the U.S. and Europe.
