The Minister of Tourism and Public Health Dangui Oduber announced the first international Sustainable Air Transportation convention held in November 2022.

In April 2012, 6 airport CEO/Managing Directors of the Dutch Caribbean (Dutch Caribbean Cooperation of Airports (DCCA) signed an agreement to promote sustainable and stable air transport with more affordable fares and better connections between the islands in the Dutch Caribbean.

This event is a combination of a seminar and workshop and has a duration of 1 week.

This joint effort should lead to more island hopping tourism, stimulate the labor market, stimulate medical care and improve the social networks. There will also be a presentation about the future alternatives in transportation.

On the agenda of the Sustainable Air Transportation event are;

  1. Electrical and other sustainable technological developments and alternatives in the aviation world other than fossil fuels.
  2. The opportunities to do business and the challenges to make airports and airlines more sustainable.
  3. The available options to improve inter-island connections

This event fits right in the Government’s policy to promote Sustainable Development Goals. It serves our tourism and improves the connection, and reduces the rates.

The Minister wishes the DCCA success with this important international event.
