TUI Fly Netherlands

About TUI Fly Netherlands

Now known as TUI Airlines Netherlands, Arkefly was founded in 2005 in the Dutch capital of Amsterdam. Currently offering a connection network of over 50 destinations, the airline operated its first domestic flight in September 2005. Beginning life as a Europe-based service, the airline added long distance journeys to Orlando and Miami in the US and to Israel to its network in 2011. In October 2013, the airline shortened its name to simply Arke to reflect the company's partnership with the travel agency of the same name.

In 2015, it was announced that Arkefly would be renamed TUI Airlines Netherlands as part of the TUI Group's move to rename each of its 5 airline subsidiaries. The airline commenced operating under its new name in October 2015. By this time, flights to popular holiday destinations in Africa, South America, North America, Central America and Asia had been added to its network. Primarily based at Schiphol Airport in Amsterdam, the company fleet is made up of 13 Boeing aircraft.
