WILLEMSTAD – April 26, 2023 – After a four-year period of closed borders between Curaçao and Venezuela on April 26, 2023, the first airline from Venezuela launched its flights to Curaçao. Albatros Airlines will fly 2 routes from Venezuela, namely the Valencia – Curaçao and Las Piedras – Curaçao routes. The airline already used to execute the Venezuela – Curaçao flights in the past. Upon arrival of both flights at Curaçao International Airport, the planes were greeted with the traditional water salute.
The Albatros Airlines flights will be executed twice a week on Wednesdays and Fridays. The flights will be realized with an Embraer 120 aircraft with a capacity of 30 seats. The Curaçao Tourist Board (CTB) is very pleased that we can welcome again the tourists from the Venezuelan market. Venezuela has always been an important market for Curaçao, and CTB is already executing different marketing actions in Venezuela. Also last month, in anticipation of the re-opening of the border with Venezuela, CTB conducted a planning session for sales managers in the tourism sector, during which the following topics were informed: the potential visitor from Venezuela, trade partners in Venezuela, connectivity between Venezuela and Curaçao, and the Visa application process.
The government of Curaçao, the Curaçao Tourist Board (CTB), Curaçao Airport Partners (CAP), Curaçao Airport Holding (CAH) and Curaçao Hospitality & Tourism Association (CHATA) congratulate Albatros Airlines with the launch of its flights between Venezuela and Curaçao, and wish them all the best.
