GREAT BAY—WINAIR has announced additional jet air service to Curacao every Thursday in addition to the existing two jet flights currently offered by Winair on Tuesdays and Saturdays. In a press release issued yesterday, the airline said this third jet service will commence Thursday August 17, 2017 departing SXM’s PJIAE airport at 11:00 AM and will offer customers in Curacao and St. Maarten another travel option on the SXM-CUR-SXM route. The airline said initial reaction and acceptance of WINAIR jet services to Curacao and Haiti has been positively received allowing this additional service to begin. There remains customer dissatisfaction with current level of service offered to customers traveling this route. This flight will originate in St. Maarten and operate directly to Curacao then return to St. Maarten. This third flight is made possible owing to the joint venture between WINAIR and PAWA. “As the airlines move forward to cooperate in the region, making air traffic more efficient and offer our mutual customers better and more options. This joint venture will also ensure the SXM-ANU-SXM service, where jet service is not viable, connectivity with Pawa is maintained,” WINAIR said in the release. “Customers can contact their favorite travel agent or visit our newly redesigned web page www.fly-winair.sx to make bookings on this new service and all Winair flights. “We are very pleased to offer this additional service, by adding this frequency it provides our customers more convenient, safe and fast travel options. This new jet service will also allow connections with our entire route network in the region,” stated Michael Cleaver, President and CEO of WINAIR.
