According to Jordan Schlipken, Director of the A.T.A. Latin America:
On the occasion of the 40th anniversary of A.T.A. in Colombia, director of A.T.A. Latin America, Jordan Schlipken elaborated on Colombia’s important position for Aruba and the connection between the two countries. There is no doubt that Aruba and Colombia share economic and commercial, cultural, health, and most of all – tourism.
Over the past decades, the A.T.A. team has worked hard to create a successful legacy of promoting our island in the Colombian market, along with partners in the market. The A.T.A. predicts that the number of visitors Aruba will receive from Colombia and Latin America will continue to grow in the year ahead, given the increase in the number of flights and seats connecting Aruba with Bogota and Medellin as well as the introduction of a new route between Aruba and Cali.
This success is the result of tireless work over the last 40 years and the confidence in the Aruba product. The important role of the A.T.A. team and former directors cannot be ignored. Colombia and Latin America.
Jordan Schlipken looks forward with the same determination to continue to reap the benefits of good relations between Aruba and Colombia, particularly in the tourism and business sectors. Schlipken was recently appointed as a member of the board of directors of Holland House for the years 2023 – 2024. The main goal of Holland House is to promote collaboration and cooperation between Dutch and Colombian entrepreneurs, thus stimulating business opportunities between Colombia, Aruba, Curaçao, St. Maarten and the Kingdom of the Netherlands.
This is an important step to further strengthen the connection between Aruba and Colombia, and signals the commitment of the A.T.A. to continue investing in the Colombian market and thus achieve the objective of increasing the number of visitors from Colombia and Latin America even further in the future, creating more diversification.
