InselAir tries other ways to get its money from Venezuela

heerenveenWILLEMSTAD - The local airline InselAir has requested the assistance of one of its own customers to recover the 100 million dollars owed to them by Venezuela. The Director of International Affairs, Edward Heerenveen announced this recently during a radio interview.

Heerenveen did not want to disclose the name of the client. It is an American financial institution that frequently used InselAir on the Miami-Curaçao-Maracaibo and vice versa route.

The 100 million dollars owed to InselAir is just a small portion of what the South American country owes to other international airlines. In total there are 24 airlines in queue to receive a total of 4 billion dollars from Venezuela.

The debt became such a high amount because tickets bought with the local currency, the Bolivar cannot be exchanged in dollars.
