WINAIR, Air France and KLM teams meet in Antigua
Published on March 14, 2017 Email To Friend    Print Version


ST JOHN’S, Antigua -- On Tuesday March 7, 2017, WINAIR, Air France and KLM held a joint sales and marketing meeting in Antigua. Presenters were Claudio Buncamper representing WINAIR and Martijn Ten Broecke representing Air France and KLM.

The objective was to raise awareness that WINAIR connects Antigua not only to their destinations in the region, but also to the US, South America, Europe, not forgetting the connections through its interline partners. Also, the latest developments and market trends that exist between Air France, KLM and WINAIR were shared to further enhance this market.

Schedules, traffic patterns and growth of European customers were shared with the stakeholders in Antigua. In addition, the planned code-share between KLM and WINAIR that will further enhance connections to Antigua, utilizing the hub facilities of SXM, Schiphol (AMS) and Charles de Gaulle (CDG) Airports, was discussed.

Growth in the Italian and German market to Antigua has seen an increase since inception of the code-share agreement between WINAIR and Air France. This will now unite the entire Air France, KLM and WINAIR route structures, offering better connectivity to Antigua and the Caribbean region.

Amongst the attendees were representatives of the Antigua Tourism Board, Charter Yacht Association, travel agents and other stakeholders.

“It is critically important that the destinations are aware of the services and developments taking place to offer more effective service to their customers,” stated M. Cleaver, president and CEO of WINAIR.

“It was a pleasure for Air France and KLM to meet all stakeholders of the Antigua tourism industry for the first time. After a successful roadshow with WINAIR in the British Virgin Islands, we joined WINAIR again in Antigua. Although we don’t offer a direct flight from Europe to Antigua, we convinced all parties that the Air France/KLM/WINAIR combination with our hub in SXM offers the best product and connection between Europe and Antigua in terms of frequencies and destinations,” said Martijn Ten Broecke, AF/KLM station manager, St Maarten.
