Civil servants working or travelling in the Caribbean part of the Kingdom are temporarily not allowed to fly with Inselair for business trips. Questions were raised about the safety of this airline.
At present there is no clear picture of the flight safety of the aircraft of InselAir. Therefore it was decided to take preventive measures and not to use the services of Inselair for business trips. It was also decided that this information would be communicated broadly to inform other travelers of this situation. The Dutch Inspectorate of Living environment and Transport “Inspectie voor Leefomgeving en Transport” is in close contact with the aviation authorities of Curacao in order to get clarity about the flight safety of the aircrafts of Inselair.
This measure was taken because the central government is responsible for the safety of its staff. The measure applies to all government personnel in the Caribbean part of the Kingdom, such as the staff of Defense, civil servants of the Rijksdienst Caribisch Nederland and the employees of the “Vertegenwoordiging van Nederland “ in Curacao, Aruba and St. Maarten.
