KLM Royal Dutch Airlines is officially relaunching its flights from Amsterdam to St Maarten.
The Dutch carrier suspended its nonstop flights to the island in the wake of Hurricane Irma in 2017, instead operating flights in combination with its Curacao flights.
Beginning Oct. 27, KLM will be flying nonstop services to St Maarten twice weekly, with flights on Tuesdays and Thursdays on Airbus A330 aircraft.
Beginning Jan. 14, 2020, KLM will be adding a third weekly flight, the company said.
It’s a huge boost for St Maarten, which has been in the midst of a tourism renaissance in the last year.
