Codeshare cooperation with InselAir not restored by KLM
WILLEMSTAD - KLM maintains a critical eye on the operations of the local airline InselAir. The codeshare cooperation between the two parties was recently suspended by KLM, because of the many problems with their regional aviation partner.
“We have resumed the interline agreement,” KLM notifies Travel Media. The interline deal with KLM means that passengers at the Dutch airport Schiphol can have their bags labelled to their final destination.
“But we did not restore the codeshare cooperation. InselAir no long flies under KLM flight code as before,” stressed the KLM spokesman. The Dutch company recently suspended its codeshare with InselAir because of the persistent complaints about the airline. TUIfly also severed ties with the company.
As is known, InselAir faces hefty debts, largely stemming from the crisis in Venezuela. The company recently announced austerity measures to its employees. About 100 employees will lose their jobs and the company will be completely restructured. Some aviation and financial experts say that these measures are a bit too late.
