PHILIPSBURG:— This week Windward Islands Airways International (Winair) received its 4th Twin Otter aircraft that will increase the airline’s airlift for the 2018-2019 high tourist season.
Winair this week in an announcement expects increased demand for flights to and from its hub at the Princess Juliana International Airport.
The 4th Twin Otter will be put into operation on Saturday, November 17, and Winair says that it will be able to meet the additional demand for flights in the Region.
“I would like to congratulate Winair on receiving their 4th aircraft of the Twin Otter model, considered a real reliable workhorse. This development once again shows that business is increasing and we are well on our way to returning to pre-Irma levels of economic activity.
“Winair, our local airline, since September 2017, has grown by leaps and bounds within a short time after the devastation caused by the hurricanes, and its acquisition of a fourth plane a little over a year later demonstrates the determination of this little airline.
“I commend the Supervisory Board, Management and Staff for their efforts in getting Winair back on track which has made a remarkable comeback,” Minister of Tourism & Economic Affairs Stuart Johnson said on Friday.
