St Maarten-based regional carrier Winair is adding more new flights for the upcoming holiday season.

The carrier is adding 24 additional seats for its St Maarten-Curacao flights on Tuesdays, Thursdays, Saturdays and Sundays.

Aruba flights will also be upgraded to the airline’s new Super ATR-72 with 72 seats, as will the carrier’s Bonaire flights.

Winair is also increasing its flights from St Maarten to Santo Domingo in the Dominican Republic to daily with the Super ATR-72, while Dominica flights will increase from four to five weekly flights.

The increases will be in effect from Dec. 1 through Jan. 15, 2018, according to the company.

“Customer feedback and the seasonal travel demands indicated that seat inventory remained insufficient,” said said Michael Cleaver, president and CEO of Winair. “By utilizing the larger and new Super ATR-72 aircraft WINAIR fulfilled these demands and is able to increase its capacity by 50 percent 4 days a week. With these enhancements we will be able to accommodate our customers needs.”
