Insel Air International establishes Insel Air Aruba

Insel Air International (Curacao) has established a new subsidiary airline named Insel Air Aruba to operate in neighboring Aruba.

Insel Air International announced a new agreement with the Aruban government and Aruban national carrier, Tiara Air.

The new agreement is valid for all routes that both airlines operate to and from Aruba. The Aruban government also stated that it was committed to awarding a new AOC (Air Operating Certificate) to Insel Air Aruba within three months. Insel Air Aruba hopes to launch operations in August.

Insel Air Aruba will be able to operate additional flights to Aruba, therefore creating more inbound flights for the island.

Insel Air Aruba will operate three Fokker 50s and one DC-9-80 (MD-80) increasing the total availability of seats to 50,000 a month.

Insel Air Aruba’s first Fokker, the pictured former KLM CityHopper F.27 Mk. 050 PH-KVG (msn 20211) arrived at Curacao on June 5, 2011 where it is pictured. PH-KVG carries a partial color scheme with a new logo expected to be added on the tail.

Tiara Air is also adopting the same basic new livery.
