SCHIPHOL, WILLEMSTAD - It will be busier at Hato airport again. Both Copa Airlines and TUI have announced that they will operate more flights to and from Curaçao starting next month. TUI even wants to reach a record number of 13 flights a week.
Curaçao is reopening step by step and tourism is starting to pick up again. This means that the airlines are also ready to take travelers to their holiday destination.
TUI previously announced that from June 18, it will offer 9 flights weekly between Amsterdam and Curaçao, in combination with Aruba and Bonaire. But the airline decided yesterday that it wants to go to 13 flights a week from July 1. This was confirmed by a TUI spokesperson.
“And that's a record,” says TUI. There is, however, one caveat. "Whether those thirteen flights will actually come, also depends a bit on that antigen test that is mandatory three days after arrival."
Copa Airlines has also indicated that it will fly more often to Curaçao. This weekend the Panamanian airline will start with 2 weekly flights between Panama and Curaçao. From July, that number will be doubled to 4 flights a week.
