    Curacao-based InselAir is planning to launch a sister carrier in Aruba in 1Q2012, the first step towards potentially establishing a pan-Caribbean airline group. InselAir is also planning to add two MD83s in 1Q2012, including an aircraft modified to operate flights of up to six hours, which will be used to launch service to Sao Paulo.

    InselAir CEO Albert Kluyver says InselAir Aruba will launch services in Jan-2012 with an initial fleet of one MD83 and two Fokker 50 turboprops. The group has identified 10 routes for the new carrier but Mr Kluyver says InselAir Aruba will initially serve only four destinations: Curacao, the Dominican Republic, Cuba and Venezuela. He says six routes are expected to be operated within the first year, including Brazil and Ecuador.

    Future planned destinations for InselAir Aruba include Colombia, Costa Rica and Puerto Rico. “We will focus our growth in Aruba,” Mr Kluyver says.

    Dear Insel Air,
    We would have been happy to use your services 12 days ago, however, the arrival and departure taxes were absolutely outrageous !!! Ticket price to Curacao was round trip $88, certainly resonable, however the additional taxes made the price $100 more....
    Perhaps you can work on those taxes before your expansion. Taxes made it unaffordable.

    Well, I guess it was a good thing since we had one more day in Aruba and spent our $$$ there..

    It's not like the airlines decide how much to charge in taxes.

    Understood.....
    pressure from corporations might help reduce the taxes though.....

    I am wondering if anyone has flown to Cuba with them?

    I've always wanted to visit Havana...
