Now that there has been a shake-up of the political status of the Dutch possessions in the Caribbean, how has it affected the departure taxes at the airports of Aruba, Curacao, Bonaire and St. Maarten?

In the past, taxes at Curacao distinguished between domestic and international flights, the latter being approx. 4 times more expensive. Bonaire as a destination was taxed as domestic, but now that CUR unlike BON is no longer Dutch, is it being treated - like Aruba - as an "international" destinational, attracting a 30+ USD departue tax? I am asking because the alternative could be for CUR to do it like BON does it, i.e. taxing Curacao and Aruba as "lcoal" flights with a discounted tax of just 9 USD.

The rather dismal CUR airport website is not very useful, they still show a tax category for domestic flights although strictly speaking there are no domestic flights from CUR anymore now that they have gained a new political status.

Matters are of course confused even further as some of the airlines serving the ABC islands do include the tax in their fare (like Tiara) while others do not (like Insel).

Anyone able to shed some light into what the taxes for flights between Aruba, Curacao and Bonaire are and which airlines include them in the ticket price?
