Curaçao Airport Holding – A state of the art competitive airport (part2)

AirportWILLEMSTAD – In its role as supervisor, Curaçao Airport Holding (CAH) supervises the continuous daily operation of the international airport in compliance with the Development, Operation and Maintenance Agreement (DOMA) it signed with Curaçao Airport Partners (CAP) and in accordance with other applicable regulatory requirements. In addition, CAH ensures that a continuous improvement process is followed to keep the Curaçao airport competitive in this service and infrastructure provisions as the competitive en environment quality requirements change over time.

The DOMA contains provisions to operate the services and facilities of the airport at a high quality standard. CAH’s key role in this is to verify compliance, which it does by carrying out regular inspections with frequent reporting and consultations with CAP. As the ultimate owner of the facilities, CAH wants to ensure that as time goes by, the news systems are introduced and the facilities remain up to date. Quality standards in the DOMA are therefore regularly reviewed and clarified or changed when this happens.

CAH occasionally also invests in the  improvement of the airport through investments of its own. Commercial Developer Simon Kloppenberg explains why: “Long-term initiatives affect all stakeholders of the airport and may lead to requirements that services are improved upon or better coordinated to ensure a seamless total package to the customers and ultimately to the overall economic benefit of Curaçao. Long-term plans are therefore always discussed with all airport stakeholders and, as the supervisor, we play a central role in organizing and managing these discussions.”
