St Maarten-based Winair is planning a massive expansion to its flight network later this month, the company said.
Winair will be launching direct service to Curacao, Santo Domingo and Haiti beginning Feb. 26.
The expanded network will include daily service to Curacao; five flights per week to Santo Domingo and two flights each week to Port-au-Prince, Haiti.
Winair will be operating the flights on ATR-42 aircraft with 48 seats, in partnership with the carrier’s alliance partner, Air Antilles.
“In keeping with Winair’s tradition of providing safe, reliable transportation we are very pleased to recommence service to these destinations,” said Michael Cleaver, CEO of Winair. “Winair looks forward to the continued support of the shareholders, employees and most importantly our customers with these new services. This positive development fills a much needed void in air connectivity and will also provide additional employment to St. Maarteners in these trying times.”
