Growing Demand for Travel to Curaçao Spurs Additional Airlift

July 3, 2023

WILLEMSTAD- July 3, 2023 – The Curaçao Tourist Board (CTB) has announced that Air Canada has transitioned their seasonal Toronto route into a year-round offering. Meanwhile, American Airlines will launch daily non-stop service from Charlotte beginning December 2023. The enhanced air connectivity aims to meet the increasing interest in exploring the stunning landscapes, vibrant culture, and unparalleled experiences that Curaçao has to offer.

As of June 2023, Air Canada is operating regular flights from Toronto, year-round, allowing travelers to indulge in the island’s captivating charm and natural beauty regardless of the season. The airline is now offering non-stop service Monday, Thursday, and Saturday departing Toronto (YYZ) at 9:30 a.m. and arriving in Curaçao (CUR) at 2:40 p.m. with a return flight from CUR to YYZ departing at 3:40 p.m. and landing at 9:10 p.m.

Moreover, responding to the growing demand, starting December 3, 2023 through April 3, 2024, American Airlines will launch daily service from Charlotte, North Carolina. This means that there will be 7 flights per week from Charlotte, compared to the current once-a-week connection. Flights will depart Charlotte (CLT) at 9:05 a.m. and arrive in Curaçao (CUR) at 2:14 p.m. with a return flight from CUR to CLT departing at 3:52 p.m. and landing at 7:10 p.m. This development will provide travelers from the United States convenient access to Curaçao’s tropical paradise, making it easier than ever to embark on an enriching journey to this Caribbean gem. Furthermore, these additional flights also provide more travel options for our local people.

“Curaçao has been long working toward product and infrastructure development to attract North American Tourist,” said Ruisandro Cijntje, Minister of Economic Development. “The introduction of year-round airlift from Toronto with Air Canada, as well as the daily service from Charlotte with American Airlines, further underscores the island’s continued growth and our commitment to providing visitors with exceptional travel experiences. We look forward to welcoming even more guests to explore our island’s breathtaking landscapes, rich history, and warm hospitality.”

These expanded flight routes highlight the collaborative efforts of Curaçao Tourist Board (CTB), Curaçao Airport Partners (CAP), Curaçao Airport Holding (CAH), airlines, and travel industry partners to support the island’s tourism growth and ensure a seamless travel experience for visitors.
