AMSTERDAM, THE NETHERLANDS — Corendon Dutch Airlines and World2Fly secure long-term lease deal for Dutch Caribbean flights.

Corendon Airlines, a low-cost Dutch carrier, has confirmed a long-term lease deal with Spanish airline World2Fly to facilitate flights from the Netherlands to the Dutch Caribbean until 2025.

The announcement comes on the heels of World2Fly's recent receipt of their third Airbus A350-900. The Madrid-based airline's latest addition, registered as EC-NZF, is known for having one of the most tightly packed passenger cabins globally, with capacity for 432 passengers in a single-class arrangement, just 8 short of the approved maximum.

Particularly, Corendon aims to deploy the state-of-the-art A350 for its future flights between Amsterdam-Schiphol and Willemstad Curaçao-Hato airports, located in the Netherlands Antilles. This flight route is one of the most significant for the Netherlands, with KLM Royal Dutch Airlines and TUIfly Netherlands currently offering services on the same route.

Atilay Uslu, founder and chief executive of Corendon, said, "We've found an excellent partner in World2Fly. Both the Iberostar Group and Corendon are thriving family businesses. We share a common language, and I've rarely seen such a swift agreement on such extensive collaboration."

Bruno Claeys, CEO of World2Fly, remarked, "We're thrilled that Corendon has selected us as a strategic partner to run this route to Curaçao, a destination much sought-after by the Dutch. This agreement allows us to diversify our business model."
