WILLEMSTAD- December 22, 2023 – In a pleasant atmosphere at CUR airport, we marked the start of Air Century’s direct connection between Punta Cana, Dominican Republic, and Curaçao. The airline’s flight schedule starts with three weekly flights on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. The flights will be operated by a Bombardier CRJ200 aircraft with a capacity of 50 seats. Upon the arrival of the inaugural flight at our airport, the plane received the traditional water salute.

During the ceremony, the Minister of Economic Development, Mr. Ruisandro Cijntje, Mr. Carlos Jimenez, Executive Vice President of Air Century, and Mr. Jonny Andersen, CEO of CAP gave their welcoming speeches to mark the arrival of the inaugural flight. Furthermore, Minister Cijntje and Mr. Muryad de Bruin (CTB), together with representatives from CAP and CAH, presented Air Century with a commemorative plaque illustrating downtown Otrobanda and our renowned Queen Emma bridge, the ‘Swinging Old Lady’.

Curaçao already has a partnership with Air Century, as the airline has been operating direct flights from the capital of Dominican Republic, Santo Domingo. The airline has now expanded its flight schedule to include direct flights from Punta Cana to Curaçao. This new connection by Air Century opens up exciting possibilities for tourists from Punta Cana to discover the diverse offerings of Curaçao. From a wide range of accommodations to a variety of tourist attractions, stunning beaches, a rich history, events, water sports, flavorful local cuisine, and, most importantly, the warm hospitality of our people. The introduction of this new direct flight also provides more travel options for our local population.

The Government of Curaçao, the Curaçao Tourist Board (CTB), Curaçao Airport Partners (CAP), Curaçao Airport Holding (CAH) and the Curaçao Hospitality & Tourism Association (CHATA) congratulate Air Century on the launch of its new route, Punta Cana – Curaçao!
