Arkefly (named after the largest Dutch tour operator, Arke) (Amsterdam) was reborn on April 21, 2005 after Dutch TUI took over the assets of bankrupt HollandExel (formerly Air Holland) and renamed it Arkefly. The first aircraft was painted in the TUI color scheme on May 31, 2005 at Maastricht.
Arkefly has now shortened its name to just Arke after its owner. As part of this rebranding, the fleet is also getting this new red, white and blue TUI color scheme. All of the aircraft will have this new look by the end of 2014.
Arke now flies to 65 destinations worldwide. You can book a flight to the Caribbean, the United States, Dubai and other destinations around the Mediterranean. Arke flies the Boeing 737-800 and the Boeing 767-300 (above). From July 2014, Arke will fly the Boeing 787 to Aruba, Bonaire and Curacao.
