Flights

There are various international airlines serving our island which makes it relatively easy to get to Bonaire. There is non-stop service (via Houston, Newark, Atlanta, Aruba, or Curaçao) as well as one-stop service from numerous points in the United States or from Europe (Amsterdam).

From North America

Delta Airlines offers a weekly Saturday non-stop flight from Atlanta to Bonaire and return. United Airlines offers two to three non-stop weekly flights, and all flights should be considered seasonal. Their first flight is a round-trip flight between Newark and Bonaire which operates only during periods of high demand. United also flies a weekly non-stop flight from Houston. Insel Air operates a weekly rotation from Miami to Bonaire. The flights take place every Saturday throughout the year.

Please note that U.S. carriers may seasonalize the flights noted above, which means they may postpone flights during periods of low demand. It is always recommended to contact the airline or your travel professional to check on flight departures.

American Airlines, Insel Air, and DAE fly non-stop daily to Curaçao from Miami. Insel Air flies on Saturdays and seasonally on Wednesdays non-stop from Charlotte, North Carolina to Curacao with continuing connections to Bonaire and United Airlines flies non-stop on Wednesdays and Saturdays to Curacao from Newark.
