Dutch Caribbean-based regional air carrier InselAir has announced upgrades to its flights from Curaçao to Baranquilla in Colombia.
The company has begun operating the route using a new jet that will cut the flight time to just 80 minutes.
From Barranquilla, travelers can easily access other popular cities in Colombia like Cartagena and Santa Martha.
The company is also shifting its Barranquilla flight schedule from Tuesdays and Fridays to Mondays and Thursdays.
“From Curaçao, InselAir will offer a comfortable and shorter flight to the metropolitan city of Barranquilla, capital of the Atlántico Department, north of Colombia and situated near the Caribbean Sea. Barranquilla, the 4th largest city of Colombia, has a lot to offer as it is known as the main industrial and cultural centre of this region,” said Jurgen Lippinkhof, Chief Commercial Officer of InselAir.
Barranquilla has been quietly seeing an increase in tourism, with a slate of new hotels and brands (like the Four Points by Sheraton, above).
