Delta Increase Service to Bonaire from Atlanta
Tourism Corporation Bonaire recently announced increased service to Bonaire from the U.S. Delta will add an additional weekly flight on Friday, effective August 22, providing Bonaire with a Friday-Saturday pattern for the fall and early winter. Delta will operate a 737-800 on the flight with 16 Business Class seats and 138 Coach seats.
The schedule will be the same as on Saturday. Flights departs Atlanta at 9:45 a.m. and arrives in Bonaire at 1:55 p.m.
Through a market support agreement with United, the Houston flight will continue in September, providing uninterrupted service year-round. Both flights have been added into the respective airlines’ systems.
“This is the first significant expansion of service from a U.S. carrier since the economic crisis of 2008," said Ethsel Pieternella, Bonaire's director of tourism in a written release. "We will have to increase our marketing efforts and grow our markets commensurately in order to fill the additional seats. It will be a challenge, but I have no doubt that together we are up to the task.”
