Air ALM suspends Aruban flights over service row.


Air ALM, a Dutch Caribbean airline, has suspended all services to Aruba because Aruban authorities have refused to service the carrier's fleet of aircraft.

The stance by Aruba has come about because authorities say the airline company owes the government about ANG1.1m in landing fees dating from 1998. The two sides have been negotiating a repayment schedule and Air ALM has apparently offered to pay ANG100,000 per month.

Air Aruba has agreed to take on passengers booked with Air ALM until the matter is resolved.
