On 16 February, Dutch Caribbean carrier Insel Air – serving as the national airline of Curaçao – ceased operations. Despite financial issues throughout its existence, the airline was eyeing to grow again but the few flights they still operated didn’t suffice to keep the airline afloat. On Facebook, the airline thanked its passengers for their loyalty: “it was truly a pleasure to serve each of you over the past 12 years!
