Plane has issue on St. Maarten

The aircraft returned to SXM

AIRPORT–It seems like Curaçao-based carrier InselAir just cannot get a break. The leased Boeing 737 of Venezuela’s Estelar Airlines suffered technical issues shortly after taking off from St. Maarten on Sunday and the pilots had to return to Princess Juliana International Airport SXM.

  The plane had already been parked on the apron Saturday due to a problem that was being fixed. Passengers therefore spent an extra night on the island.

  It happened again the next day, however. Apparently there was still an unresolved shortcoming and the plane turned around, landing safely.
