Winair is returning Bonaire to its Caribbean flight network next month, Caribbean Journal has learned. 

The St Maarten-based carrier is once again including Bonaire in its portfolio of destinations, with the relaunch of flights between St Maarten and Bonaire with a stopover in Curacao. 

That route will resume in July, with two weekly flights from St Maarten on Thursdays and Sundays. 

“WINAIR is very pleased to reintroduce our services to Bonaire”, said Michael Cleaver, President CEO of WINAIR, ”We are proud to be the only airline that serves all six Dutch Caribbean Islands. Our services were suspended due to the effects of COVID, WINAIR remains committed to the North and Southern Caribbean, in particular the Dutch Caribbean.

The new service “will provide visitors the opportunity to travel seamlessly from St. Maarten and surrounding islands to visit Bonaire,” Winair said in a statement. 

Winair is operating the service on its 48-seat ATR aircraft. 

”We are thrilled to announce the reintroduction of flights to Bonaire from Curaçao and St.Maarten in partnership with Winair. This collaboration will provide enhanced connectivity and seamless travel options for visitors from St. Maarten and surrounding islands to experience the beauty of Bonaire. Additionally, it will offer the Bonaire community improved connections to Curaçao and convenient access to St. Maarten, Saba, and St. Eustatius. We are confident that this renewed route will contribute to the growth and development of tourism in our region,” said Miles Mercera, CEO Tourism Corporation Bonaire.
