Winair updates post-hurricane progress

winair-950x530PHILIPSBURG - Regional air carrier Winair’s facilities in St Maarten were completely destroyed by hurricanes Irma and Maria resulting in the need for new premises to enable Winair firstly to serve its customers by opening a new sales / reservations office and leasing additional premises for its accounting and human resources functions.

“Customer and vendors reception has truly been positive,” stated M.D. Cleaver, CEO and president of Winair.

To continue transparency and inform the traveling public, has Winair announced its discontinuance of its twice weekly services to Curacao through the ACMI lease with its partner PAWA Dominicana.

“Our relationship with PAWA Dominicana remains strong and we look forward to exploring other various opportunities in the aviation industry in collaboration PAWA in the future,” Cleaver said.

Winair will continue twice weekly service PAP-SXM-PAP each Wednesday and Saturday utilizing a state of the art Airbus A-320 with a passenger capacity of 138 economy seats and 12 business class seats. With this equipment enhancement Winair will be offering the latest technology to transport customers to and from Port au Prince, Haiti.

However, despite the best efforts of Winair and its partners in The Hague, the airline was unable to achieve a workable plan to accommodate and facilitate the CN Express operation. Winair’s current operational and financial situation post Irma/ Maria preclude Winair from avoidable risks at this time.
