AIRPORT–Discussions have begun between Divi Divi Air, Curaçao, and local airline Winair to begin the process of working together to improve connectivity in the ABC islands (Aruba, Bonaire and Curaçao) and the Northern Caribbean.
“The goals of these two companies will be how they can provide better services to mutual customers, lower prices and increase options for customers capitalising on each other’s geographical location and extensive route networks,” stated Winair President and CEO Michael Cleaver.
Winair, with Air Antilles and LIAT, is a founding member of the Caribsky Alliance which serves 35 destinations and has a combined fleet of 22 aircraft.
“We can better serve the ABC islands through working with Divi Divi Air. This will achieve tangible results for our respective companies and customers,” Cleaver added.
“Divi Divi Air is very content with the discussions that have taken place so far. We look at Winair as a pioneer in the Twin Otter operation, a company that has proven to be resilient in harsh conditions and, like ourselves, the oldest operating airline in their own respective country. Relating completely in similar circumstances, we find we can gain mutual benefit from a professional synergy and look forward where these talks may take the two companies,” said Divi Divi Air Manager Germaine Richie.
Although talks only recently started, both Winair and Divi Divi Air are confident that there are many opportunities and synergies between the two companies.
