The BVI Beacon: "WINAIR plans to resume flights to the Virgin Islands after a 15-month hiatus, increasing the territory’s airlift capacity to the European travel hubs St. Maarten and Antigua. The company — which is owned by the government of the Netherlands Antilles — went through a planned restructuring last year to remain viable. To reduce costs, in February 2009, WINAIR cut flights to the VI, St. Kitts and Dominica, which the company said were not profitable.
Now in a better fiscal position, the carrier plans to re-enter the wider Caribbean market with improved flight schedules, a wider market scope and lower costs, according to Claudio Buncamper, vice president of marketing and sales."
