CCAA: Fokkers InselAir are safe
WILLEMSTAD - The three Fokker aircraft that are currently part of InselAir’s fleet are in good and safe condition. This is according to the Curaçao Civil Aviation Authority (CCAA). The CCAA responds after the controversy in the media about the safety of the InselAir aircraft.
Two inspectors of the CCAA inspects on a daily basis every incoming and outgoing flight of the company. The four MD-80 aircraft which are on the ground are now in good condition, but they have not been released yet by the Aruban Aviation Authority.
The Minister responsible for aviation, Suzanne Camelia-Römer also indicated that if an InselAir flight leaves it is because the aircraft is safe. “The flights that receive a green light are safe,” said the Minister in an interview. “All these aircraft are being inspected. We have a number one rule. This is if there are doubts, then the aircraft will not fly!”
This is the Minister’s reaction to the ban of the U.S. Consulate and the Dutch Government for the officials to fly with InselAir.
