This new flight will highlight the services of the United Airlines’ to restart after almost a decade in the island. This would be a move to accommodate growing US demand and allow more North American visitors better access to the sought-after destination.
Every Saturday, the new nonstop flight will depart from Newark Liberty International Airport (EWR) at 8:33 a.m. and arrive at Hato International Airport (CUR) at 2:30 p.m. The return flight will depart CUR at 3:30 p.m., landing at EWR at 7:35 p.m.
“The Northeast has always been a strong market for Curaçao, and while we’ve enjoyed nonstop airlift out of JFK for a few years now, this new flight provides a second Saturday option and also an additional connection for travelers routing through Newark on their way to and from Curaçao,” said Paul Pennicook, CEO of the Curaçao Tourist Board.
“Curaçao has experienced double-digit growth for several consecutive months now, and with the onset of two large-scale hotel projects with strong US appeal, demand from the northeast continues to grow.”
The new United Airlines flight rounds out Curaçao’s North American airlift available this winter on American Airlines, JetBlue, Air Canada and WestJet.
Twice every day, American Airlines will fly nonstop from Miami to Curaçao and weekly out of Charlotte on Saturdays, as JetBlue will fly non-stop from New York’sJohn F. Kennedy on Mondays, Wednesdays and Saturdays.
Air Canada will function four times every week from Toronto and two times per week from Montreal.
