It’s Getting Even Easier to Visit the Island of Aruba

By: Caribbean Journal Staff - July 5, 2023

As Aruba continues to see strong arrival growth, the Dutch Caribbean island is getting a host of new flights from the United States.

American Airlines just doubled its flights between Charlotte and Aruba in June, meaning the carrier is now operating two daily flights from Charlotte to the island.

The airline is also significantly ramping up its flights from Philadelphia to Aruba, rising from one to eight weekly flights.

This summer, the Miami-Aruba is adding a second daily flight in September and then again in October.

Another major airline, JetBlue, which is Aruba’s second-largest carrier, just relaunched its Newark-Aruba route, which is now running weekly on Saturdays.

Low-cost carrier Spirit Airlines has confirmed that it will be expanding to daily flights between Fort Lauderdale and Aruba beginning in the winter 2023-2024 season, an increase from what are now two weekly flights on Wednesdays and Saturdays.

Aruba airport officials said this week that Delta would also be increasing capacity to Aruba for the winter season, headlined by the addition of a second daily flight between Atlanta and Aruba beginning in January 2024.

It all adds up to a serious boost for an island that is already putting the pandemic in its rear-view mirror, a development that began with skillfully-navigated summers in 2020 and 2021 and a strong recovery last year.

It’s not just the United States market, however.

Air Canada is restarting its Aruba service with three weekly flights beginning in October, while WestJet has also signaled plans to increase frequencies to the island this winter.

“These additional flights and new routes will further connect Aruba to international destinations, further reinforcing Aruba Airport’s commitment in seeking new opportunities and expanding its global reach,” said Jo-Anne Meaux-Arends, Aviation Business Development Executive at Queen Beatrix International Airport.
