Tiara Air Aruba recently announced the delivery of its first Boeing 737-300 yesterday at 5:45 p.m. local time into Aruba’s Queen Beatrix International Airport (AUA). The addition of “The Tiara Air Arawak” to the fleet marks the beginning of a new phase of regional expansion for the airline.
With the arrival of its new aircraft, Tiara Air Aruba will seek to expand its existing route structure to include new destinations of interest to the island’s tourism growth including more destinations in Venezuela, Colombia, the Caribbean and the US.
Tiara Air Aruba is currently offering service between Aruba and Curacao; Bonaire; Riohacha, Colombia; Maracaibo, Venezuela and Punto Fijo, Venezuela.
“We are thrilled to welcome our newest and largest aircraft into the Tiara fleet,” said Alejandro Muyale, CEO of Tiara Air Aruba, in a written release. “The increase in capacity provided by the 141-seat 737-300 gives us the leverage we need to enter new markets where travel to Aruba is in demand.”
Tiara Air Aruba currently utilizes Short 360 aircraft with a capacity of 30 seats on all flights.
Most recently, Tiara Air Aruba has negotiated with Global GDS (Global Distribution Systems) Amadeus, Sabre and Travelport to make Tiara Air Aruba’s flights available worldwide.
Tiara Air is also member of IATA Bank Settlement Plans in Venezuela, Colombia and the Eastern Caribbean as well as ARC (Airline Reporting of America), making booking and ticketing possible in all destinations.
