At GenAir we inspire others to be leaders in the industry.
General Air Service Aruba, locally known as GenAir is a family-owned ground handling company founded in the year of 1972 by the Muyale brothers.
Camilo and Tito Muyale were involved in Tourism and Aviation at a very young age and started off as Ramp agents for Amara. However, the constantly increasing tourism flow of the island of Aruba demanded a ground handling service that could cope with the islands rising airline demands. That’s when the two brothers decided to start up their own ground handling service.
FROM A SMALL GROUND HANDLING SERVICE WHOM ONLY HANDLED SOUTH AMERICAN CHARTER FLIGHT
From a small ground handling service whom only handled South American charter flight, GenAir currently works with 30 different airlines. Including multinationals like JetBlue, Delta, TUI Netherlands, KLM etc. Handling a total of 30 airlines out of the 39 that operate in Aruba. Additionally, GenAir continues to grow offering ground handling services on the islands of Curacao (since 2001), and Bonaire (since 2016) as well. Like Aruba, Curacao has been expecting a massive growth in their tourism sector, which was more than enough reason for the birth of Antillean Flight Services locally known as AFS Curacao. This ground handling service company was established in 2001and offers the same type of services as Aruba. On the island of Bonaire, GenAir offers their support and supervision to Progressive Air Services. Conducting trainings, audits, handing out certifications and providing ground support equipment support. In comparison to Aruba and Curacao, Bonaire only offers above and below the wing ground handling services to narrow body airplane. However, Bonaire is slowly increasing and developing its services and soon they will be able to offer services to wide body airplanes as well.
