SCHIPHOL - From July 1, TUI will again offer holidays and will include trips to Aruba and Curaçao. KLM even wants to fly back to the islands in early June. From Wednesday 3 June, in addition to Curaçao, Aruba, Bonaire and Sint Maarten will also be connected to Schiphol. This is reported by Luchtvaartnieuws.nl.
From all islands it is possible to travel to the Netherlands on these flights, for people who would like to return to the Netherlands.
Flying to Curaçao depends on the authorities opening the borders. According to KLM, that moment is not far away. As soon as that happens, TUI / KLM tickets become available for sale.
“We want to start up the network further and see demand for tickets from the market. The Dutch would like to go on a summer vacation,” says CEO Pieter Elbers in conversation with Luchtvaarnieuws.nl. "With all measures taken on board and on the ground, we do this as safely as possible."
During the corona crisis, KLM continued to fly on Curaçao in order to provide the island and other parts of the Caribbean Netherlands with relief supplies and medical care. In total, more than five hundred tons of freight were transported to Curaçao. In addition, more than twenty repatriation flights were carried out to pick up stranded Dutch people.
