U.S./Dutch Safety Agreement Signed
The Netherlands has signed an agreement with the U.S. FAA to promote air safety in the airspace around the Dutch-governed Caribbean islands of Aruba, Curacao and Sint Maarten (southern half of Saint Maarten), as well as portions of Bonaire, Saba and St. Eustatius. The U.S. is responsible for providing air traffic flow services in the adjacent San Juan flight information region. This agreement will include coordination of traffic flows between airspace controlled by the U.S. and Dutch authorities. The FAA will also facilitate the installation and maintenance of air navigation equipment and facilities.
