Tour operator and aviation chain Corendon will fly to Curaçao itself from November. It does this with aircraft that it leases from the Spanish company World2Fly.
Corendon has so far worked with KLM to transport travellers to the Caribbean island but considers it “essential to ensure sufficient flight capacity” because of its thousand hotel rooms.
The Corendon flights go non-stop between Schiphol and Hato Airport in Curaçao five times a week and even six times a week in the summer months. The flights will be operated with an Airbus A350-900 with room for more than four hundred passengers. Two-thirds of the available tickets are sold as part of package tours, and one-third can be booked separately.
According to Corendon, it is also essential for the residents of Curaçao to have sufficient capacity on the route to Schiphol.
As a result, prices go down. With the flights from Corendon, the capacity on the route to Schiphol will increase by about a third. The travel provider will also recruit cabin crew on the island and wants Papiamento to be one of the official languages on the flights in addition to Dutch and English.
The first new flight will take place on November 3.
