Insel Air joins IATAPOSTED: 03/28/12 11:22 AM
WILLEMSTAD, Curacao – Director General and Chief Executive Officer of the International Air Transport Association (IATA) Antony Tyler officially welcomed Insel Air as an active member of the organization last week. A requirement to become an active IATA member is the IATA Operational Safety Audit (IOSA), which Insel Air obtained in 2011. Insel Air is the only airline within the Dutch Caribbean with the worldwide highly rated IATA Operational and Safety Audit (IOSA) certification and Latin American and Caribbean Air Transport Association (ALTA) and IATA membership.
“This membership makes it possible for us to protect passengers rights, guard and protect the aviation industry in this region, and contribute to the growth within this industry and all businesses related to it,” according to Chief Executive Officer Insel Air Albert Kluyver said.
Later he’d add, “Together with other high profile airlines such as Avianca, Taca, Tam, Copa, Lan and AeroMexico we are part of the Alta board and work together on passenger protection and sustainable air traffic throughout the region.”
“With 16 Pan-American destinations and still growing it is very important that we can offer our passengers safe travels as well as their protection, now and in the future. We started Insel Air nearly six years ago in order to provide better connectivity between the islands for reasonable prices, we’ve grown to be one of the best connecting airlines within this region, providing flexible connectivity to North- and South America and the Caribbean region. Also our strategic partnerships with airlines such as US Airways, Air France, KLM, SLM, Avianca, Blue Panorama and others create even further this connectivity, connecting our passengers throughout the world,” Kluyver concluded.
