If you’ve been infected by the travel bug, you’re going to want to listen up. It seems this year has really brought back the pre-pandemic travel crowds which has made finding the perfect location especially difficult. If you’ve been on the hunt for a place to visit from Toronto, we’ve got some great news for you. WestJet Airlines has announced their first-ever flight from Toronto to Bonaire. The non-stop route will operate with service beginning in December. Talk about the perfect holiday getaway!
Fly with WestJet Toronto to Bonaire
Not only is this WestJet’s first direct flight to the island, but it’s also the first non-stop route to Bonaire from Toronto. The route is scheduled to operate once weekly, every Tuesday beginning on December 12, 2023 through mid-April 2024.
“We are very happy to welcome our friends in the North to our beautiful island this winter via this first of its kind route,” said 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.”
“We are committed to staying up-to-date with our customers’ travel wants and needs,” CEO of WestJet Group, Alexis von Hoensbroech, commented. “With this new flight, Canadians can explore more corners of the Caribbean and trade in Toronto’s cold snow for Bonaire’s warm breeze.”
WestJet has even created a discount for Bonnaireans to explore Toronto on this new direct flight. This is certainly a new milestone for us, and we encourage our local community to take the opportunity to travel to Toronto – something that was much more difficult to do before this flight,” said Hennyson Thielman, Commissioner of Tourism of Bonaire. “This connection goes both ways, so it is a win-win for both destinations.”
So, if blue skies and even bluer water are your vibe, you may want to consider booking a trip from Toronto to Bonaire this winter. For more information, you can explore Bonaire’s tourism site here.
