Dutch Caribbean Airlines was actually established in 1964 as Air ABC (Air Aruba, Bonaire, Curaçao) and the airline was later renamed to Antilliaanse Luchtvaart Maatchappij (ALM) to take over the services of the Caribbean division of KLM.
The airline was succeeded by Air ALM, which was owned by the same DC Holding that owned ALM Antillean Airlines and later Dutch Caribbean Airlines.
These are the destinations that were operated by "Dutch Caribbean Airlines" when the airline was in service:
- Puerto Plata (Gregorio Luperón International Airport)
- Punta Cana (Punta Cana International Airport)
- Santo Domingo (Las Américas International Airport)
- Kralendijk (Flamingo International Airport)
- Willemstad (Hato International Airport)
- Philipsburg (Princess Juliana International Airport)
- Caracas/Maiquetía (Simón Bolívar International Airport)
- Las Piedras (Josefa Camejo International Airport)
- Maracaibo (La Chinita International Airport)
- Valencia (Arturo Michelena International Airport)
During the transfer of the airline’s assets from Air ALM, the airline acquired some of the Air ALM aircraft and later on received other aircraft for its own.
