InselAir Adds Capacity From St. Maarten & Trinidad Into Curaçao for SOTIC


BRIDGETOWN, Barbados Sep 11 2015 – Curaçao’s national carrier has announced additional seats into the country for next month’s Caribbean Tourism Organization (CTO)’s State of the Industry Conference (SOTIC) scheduled for October 21-23 at the World Trade Center in Willemstad.

InselAir has agreed to add capacity from St. Maarten and Trinidad into Curaçao on Monday 19th October and out of Curaçao on Saturday 24th October in order to facilitate travel for the region’s premier tourism event.

The airline’s chief executive officer Albert Kluyver said the conference is important for regional tourism, therefore the airline felt it necessary to help make it easier for delegates to attend.

“InselAir has always stressed the importance of working together with airports, governments and other parties to the benefit of the local economies and the development of tourism, on which most of the Caribbean countries rely. The SOTIC 2015 is a great opportunity to share insights, knowledge, trends, developments and address issues in order to constructively work together for the benefit of the industry and our countries,’ Mr. Kluyver said.

The regional carrier LIAT has brought forward its winter schedule to begin on 15 September, with a daily non-stop flight between Antigua and Puerto Rico, plus additional flights to Guyana via Trinidad, from where delegates can connect to Curaçao.

The CTO State of the Industry Conference is the pre-eminent tourism gathering in the region. It brings together tourism decision-makers, including ministers, commissioners and directors of tourism, hotel and airline executives, travel agents, students, the media and persons directly and indirectly involved in tourism. It is preceded by CTO business meetings, including meetings of the board of directors and the Council of Ministers and Commissioners of Tourism.
