As part of the Dutch Caribbean, Bonaire is in the Leeward Antilles in the Caribbean Sea and is accessible through The Flamingo International Airport.
Known for its globally acclaimed shore diving and wind surfing, Bonaire is the ideal destination for warm weather, adventure-seeking Canadians.
"We are very happy to welcome our friends in the North to our beautiful island this winter via this first of its kind route," noted Miles Mercera, CEO at Tourism Corporation Bonaire. "Canada continues to be a vital connection for Bonaire, with Canada ranking among our top 10 performing markets. This historic new connectivity helps answer the demand of tourism interest in the island, which we expect to only increase during the colder months."
