* New Aircraft Provides Increased Capacity for Regional Expansion *

Oranjestad, Aruba – Tiara Air Aruba is proud to announce the delivery of its first Boeing 737-300 yesterday at 5:45pm 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.

“We are thrilled to welcome our newest and largest aircraft into the Tiara fleet,” said Mr. Alejandro Muyale, CEO of Tiara Air Aruba.  “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.”

Greeted by a fire truck salute and ribbon-cutting, the delivery ceremony was attended by the Minister of Tourism, Transportation & Labour; the Aruba Tourism Authority; the Aruba Hotel & Tourism Association; airport officials; press; and Tiara Air Aruba staff & personnel.

Tiara Air Aruba currently utilizes Short 360 aircraft with a capacity of 30 seats on all flights. 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), and Maracaibo and Punto Fijo (Venezuela).
