“Canadians have been asking for the addition of this diving and windsurfing paradise known for its pristine waters and rich marine life to our network,” said Arved von zur Muehlen, WestJet Chief Commercial Officer. “Bonaire is filled with safe activities for those seeking to getaway this winter and we look forward to connecting guests to the island’s unique and unforgettable hospitality.”

Travellers can book with peace of mind knowing WestJet has implemented more than 20 additional health and safety measures through the airline’s Safety Above All program and is offering guests no-charge COVID-19 travel insurance. WestJet continues to invest in additional safety measures and will evolve its programs to meet the needs of guests and WestJetters.

“On behalf of the Tourism Corporation Bonaire, we are extremely proud of the flight agreement entered with WestJet. Considering the pandemic we are going through, this is certainly a great asset to tourism of Bonaire. The TCB team is working hard with WestJet to prepare the marketing activities so that we can welcome our Canadian visitors with open arms in February,” said Adely Susana-Jansen, BHM Director.

As part of the Dutch Caribbean, Bonaire is located in the Leeward Antilles in the Caribbean Sea and is accessible through The Flamingo International Airport. The airline’s new service will be operated on WestJet’s Boeing 737 aircraft featuring its Premium and Economy cabins.
