Dutch Caribbean islands get new aviation regulations

WILLEMSTAD - The Caribbean parts of the Kingdom are getting new rules for aviation. The employees of the various aviation departments involved have recently met to shape this project.  


This is according to Marius Sliedrecht, program manager for Caribbean Aviation at the Dutch Ministry of Infrastructure and Water Management, said.  


Good news for aviation safety in the Caribbean, Sliedrecht writes in a post on LinkedIn. The organization of air traffic control is carried out jointly for the Caribbean Netherlands, Curaçao, Aruba and Sint Maarten. 


That starts, writes Sliedrecht, with the building of a solid foundation for cooperation, and the development of new regulations. “In doing so, we ensure that all air traffic control services in the Caribbean region of the Kingdom will also be able to meet the latest safety requirements of the UN Civil Aviation Organization ICAO in the future.  


These rules must be identical in content, so that joint supervision of traffic control can be continued even more efficiently, according to Sliedrecht.
