Rates for handling small airplanes are too high

Curacao airportWILLEMSTAD - The rates for the handling of small airplanes at the Hato International Airport are too high. The administrative process is too slow. That is according to Henry Veeris of flight school Aero Club Caribe. The number of light aircraft that lands on Curaçao has decreased by a quarter in the last few years.

On average there are 3,000 small planes a year in Curacao. A few years ago, according to Veeris, it was more than 4000 per year. In November last year, he sent a letter to the two Ministers responsible for aviation and the airport. Only the Minister of Transport, Earl Balborda has responded. Minister of Economy, Stanley Palm has not. Curacao Airport Partners (CAP) have promised that by the month of August 2014 there will be a terminal with its own immigration and customs for the general aviation.
