ORANJESTAD, Aruba -- Air Aruba's suspension of operations Oct. 23
did not leave the destination devoid of service from the U.S.
United Airlines launched seasonal weekend service from Chicago
on Nov. 11, and US Airways introduced daily service from
Philadelphia on Nov. 12.
Aruba is served by twice-daily flights on American from Miami,
as well as service from New York and San Juan.
TWA has daily flights from Boston; New York (Kennedy); Fort
Lauderdale, Fla., and Los Angeles via San Juan.
Delta flies nonstop from Atlanta and will begin the same service
from New York's Kennedy next month.
Continental has twice-weekly flights from Houston and will add
four weekly flights from Newark on Dec. 14.
Air Aruba, owned in part (30%) by the Aruba government, insisted
it has suspended service, not shut down.
However, it has no available aircraft because three of its
leased planes were repossessed and three other aircraft are in need
