St Maarten-baser regional Caribbean airline Winair is getting bigger. 

The carrier has announced the acquisition of two ATR 42-500 series aircraft, Caribbean Journal has learned. 

The new aircraft will provide service to Aruba, Bonaire, Curacao, Dominica and Port-au-Prince, Haiti. 

Most notable is the return of service to Bonaire, a Dutch Caribbean island that was previously served by Winair. 

The first plane will be delivered in March; the second ATR plane will be delivered in April 2023, with the second aircraft providing service to Antigua, Tortola, Saint Lucia and Barbados. 

Winair said there was “further analysis and review of route expansion to other destinations ongoing.”

The company’s growth comes after six years of a lease partnership with Guadeloupe-based Air Antilles. 

“Our partnership with Air Antilles will continue to evolve, strengthening WINAIR’s and Air Antilles’ route structure in the Caribbean, also providing commonality of fleet type,” said Michael Cleaver, president and CEO of Winair. 

Cleaver said the addition of the new planes “ushers in a new era for Winair, operating its own ATR aircraft thus enhancing our current business model.”
