Martinair will start flights to Curacao (CUR) initially via Barbados and then from December onwards non-stop, this winter season (from October 29). Martinair already flew this route 7 years ago.
The same airline will also start routes to Paramaribo (PBM) Suriname. Although Martinair is not confirming this yet. It was announced by a major travel-agency in The Netherlands, Does and Cadushi Tours.
Both routes will be done by Boeing 767-300s.
So for Curacao this means heavy competition for Arkefly, who is doing the same route with the same A/C. And for Surinam this means that the ticket prices can come down. KLM/Surinam Airlines have a monopoly on this route and ticketprices have been very high. Altough Martinair is 49.5% owned by KLM.
