WILLEMSTAD, Curacao – New air service starting this summer will make traveling to the Dutch Caribbean island of Curaçao even easier.
Starting June 22, InselAir will twice a week – on Wednesday and Saturdays – fly between Charlotte, N.C., and Curaçao. With the new service, there will be 191,000 total combined seats per year on airlines traveling between the United States and Curaçao, according to the Curaçao Tourist Board.
“We are thrilled to announce InselAir’s nonstop, twice weekly flights to Curaçao from Charlotte, increasing the seat capacity for U.S. travelers to visit Curaçao,” Curaçao Tourist Board Chief Executive Officer Ghatim Kabbara said in a news release.
“The new service brings huge potential for growth in arrivals to Curaçao from Charlotte, North Carolina, the surrounding area and feeder markets,” Kabbara said. “With twice weekly flights from Charlotte, we hope to introduce Curaçao to more American travelers, making the destination more accessible from the Middle Atlantic States, North Carolina and South Carolina.”
InselAir also offers service between Curaçao and Miami, as does American Airlines.
There are more than 20 flights between Atlanta and Charlotte on Wednesdays and Saturdays.
