WestJet Launches Direct Flights To Bonaire


Canadian low-cost carrier WestJet has announced the launch of a direct route to Bonaire.

The new route will provide a direct non-stop service between Toronto Pearson International Airport and Bonaire Flamingo International Airport. The route will begin operations just in time for the holiday rush on December 12, 2023, and is scheduled to operate through the middle of April 2024.

Commenting  on the launch of the new service, Alexis von Hoensbroech, the CEO of WestJet Group, stated:

“We are committed to staying up-to-date with our customers’ travel wants and needs…With this new flight, Canadians can explore more corners of the Caribbean and trade in Toronto’s cold snow for Bonaire’s warm breeze.”

While Maarten van der Scheer, the CEO of Flamingo International Airport, added:

“We’re very happy that WestJet has chosen Bonaire as their only new route this winter. International airlines have very limited new capacity to add because of crew and aircraft shortage, this announcement proves the confidence we all have in Bonaire and the Toronto market. The new weekly non-stop flight will provide our passengers from the Toronto area and beyond a much better connection to Bonaire and provides the hospitality sector on the island the much-needed extra airlift. We’re very happy to start this new Toronto flight with WestJet in December in close cooperation with all our stakeholders.”
