KLM ends cooperation with InselAir

KLMWILLEMSTAD - The Dutch aviation company KLM stops the cooperation with the local airline InselAir. As a result, travelers flying from the Netherlands to the ABC islands or Sint Maarten cannot travel on the same ticket with InselAir for the time being.

They have to buy a separate ticket for their subsequent journey and at the airport in question first pick up their luggage and check in again.

KLM gives 'the poor operational performance' of InselAir as the reason for the suspension. InselAir’s CFO André Delger admits that the Curaçao airline has experienced a 'difficult week' at the end of January and the beginning of February when both F-50 aircraft were on the ground and flights were delayed or canceled. But he finds the conclusions that KLM is now making and this action disproportionate.

The finance director had not yet had contact with KLM management about the matter, but he is going to ask for clarification. “Without backup it remains a fragile operation, but last week we were able to fly properly according to schedule. I will talk to KLM about it,” says Delger.
