11SEP20 / 0600Z - Friday Night Flight: ABC Islands @ TNCA/TNCB/TNCC


We continue the island theme from last week’s event by heading to the hidden gems that are the ABC islands. Made up of Aruba, Bonaire, and Curaçao, these islands form the very southern edge of the Caribbean and are located far closer to South America than to the rest of the Caribbean islands.

The islands have a diverse heritage, and the ABC islands, also known as part of the Leeward Antilles, form part of the famous West Indies area. The airports in this region are small and single-runway airports, so all three airports will act as the hub this week. Please be aware that if one airport is over capacity you may be diverted by IFATC to one of the other three if suitable.

Routes this week will be based in the surrounding area, with one long haul established route from EHAM that covers all hub airports. IFATC will not be active at EHAM.

Which of the ABC islands is the largest??

  • Aruba
  • Bonaire
  • Curaçao

Hey pilots! I would like to make a special request: I know that most of the pilots fly to the fuller airports, and I know you can fly wherever you want, but most of you probably remember what happened in NTAA some weeks ago. From the 3 hub airports, Curaçao (TNCC) is the largest, and the only one that doesn’t contain a backtaxi. So when planning your overnights to the islands, to avoid delays, if everyone wants to go to the same airport, as normally happens, going to TNCC is the most proper one!
But remember this is only a recommendation and if you wanna go to the other airports obviously you can!

Up until recently the KLM 747 visited TNCC daily, but all the airports are able to handle (a limited amount of) the Queen of the skies.
