A special Insel Air charter flight flew 25 Health Insurance Office Caribbean Netherlands ZVK medical patients to St. Eustatius on Wednesday, October 4.
These patients from Statia and Saba and their companions were forced to stay in Curacao due to conditions in the aftermath of Hurricanes Irma and Maria.
Eight persons from Saba were transported on a special Windward Islands Airways International Winair charter flight to Saba shortly after their arrival in Statia.
Patients from Statia on this special flight were met at F.D. Roosevelt Airport by a large crowd of family members and well-wishers who welcomed them back to the island.
