AIRPORT–Airline KLM will fly to back to the Netherlands from St. Maarten without a stop in Curaçao from now on, making it the last time the Boeing 747-400 flight lands in St. Maarten.
The Dutch carrier’s outbound flights had all been via Curaçao. The new direct return flight will save passengers four hours and twenty minutes in travelling time.
KLM will fly directly to St. Maarten three times a week and seven times directly to Curaçao. The flights to and from St. Maarten will be operated with an Airbus 330-200 with room for 243 passengers. The flights to and from Curaçao will be operated with the Boeing 747-400 with capacity for 408 passengers.
KLM also will expand its flights to Aruba and Bonaire with an additional flight on Sundays. These flights will be operated using an Airbus 330-300 with room for 292 passengers.
