It has never been easier to discover Curacao from Toronto!
Published on September 21, 2013 Email To Friend    Print Version

WILLEMSTAD, Curacao -- “Bon Bini” to Curacao! More Canadian visitors than ever will be saying those words as they touch down in Curacao beginning this October. That’s when the first of three airlines will begin additional flights from Toronto to Curacao. The flights have been added as demand for the destination has increased in recent months and visitors clamour to spend more time on the island.

Airlines flying from Toronto to Curacao include WestJet, Sunwing and Air Canada. WestJet and Sunwing will fly nonstop on Sundays, while Air Canada will fly every Friday. It is a schedule that accommodates many different vacation itineraries.

“The Curacao Tourist Board has been working diligently to increase air lift from Canada to Curacao because we know how important it is to accommodate eager travellers,” says André Rojer, Curacao Tourist Board Marketing Manager North America. “The decision of these carriers to schedule these flights and to increase the number of available seats demonstrates a clear demand for the destination and also benefits the number of tourists who are keen to visit Curacao and experience our unique country and its culture.”

The first flights from Toronto – on WestJet -- begin on October 27 through April 20, 2014. Sunwing will offer its flight service from December 15 through April 27, 2014 and Air Canada’s flights are scheduled from December 20 through April 25, 2014.

Hotels and resorts in Curacao are offering special early booking deals.

With its pristine dive sites, secluded beaches, championship golf course and rich local cuisine, Curacao offers a little something for everyone – from the adventure traveler who wants to dive and hike to the leisure traveler who simply wants to unwind and enjoy the ideal climate and beautiful beaches. Curacao also boasts an eclectic mix of history and culture with the UNESCO Heritage capital city of Willemstad and the first Jewish synagogue in the Western Hemisphere among many other sights. It’s an unexpected place, ripe for a multitude of experiences.
