This was posted on Scubaboard. FlightStats does not show them flying today, but also does not indicate cancellations. The CUR airport website does NOT show any DAE flights arriving or departing, but does show AA, Insel, KLM and others. The Curacao Hospitality etc. website makes no mention of this that I found. As you may know, DAE suspended flights to Bonaire a few days ago.


DAE no longer able to flight out of Curacao
The Curaçao Hospitality & Tourism Association isued a statement that airline DAE had to stop all flights out of Curaçao:

(http://www.chata.org/)24 August 2013

"Please be informed that DAE is not able to operate from the Curacao Airport. CAP (Curacao Airport Partners) has issued a statement informing DAE that this company may not use its facilities (CAP) (due to increasing outstanding debts) which means that all DAE flights have been cancelled. (as of today)

As our partner, we urge you to inform your guests flying with DAE not only today but for the coming weeks, that the Miami, Orlando and all other routes have been canceled.
Additionally we request you to inform your future arrival guests as well, who have a reservation and/or a ticket/package booked with DAE to re-arrange their flight to avoid issues/surprises on the day of travel.

Please note that Insel Air is trying to accommodate the passengers of DAE by adding additional flights out of Curacao but this is only applicable for the regional flights such as Aruba, Bonaire, Santo Domingo etc. Unfortunately, due to our category 2 status we are not able to add any additional flights with our local carriers to the United States."

I'm OK with this. Sorry for the people involved and the loss of some flying options, but the operation had too many problems for too many years to be a viable choice to fly on.

Some travel places would not sell a DAE ticket, as they considered them too unreliable!

This is a good thing, long term.
I've had two good experiences using Insel and this will allow them to expand, with proper management...
