Divi Divi Air’s New Twin Otters to provide service between Bonaire and Aruba and Curacao.
For the third month in a row, there was cause for celebration at Bonaire’s Flamingo Airport yesterday, when Divi Divi Air inaugurated their new service between the ABC islands with two 19-seat Twin Otter planes.
Lt. Governor Edison Rijna, along with the Director of Tourism, Maurice Adriaens, welcomed the owner of Divi Divi Air, Mrs. Germaine Richie-Durand, on the first official flight of Divi’s new service with two 19-seater Twin Otters.
Divi Divi Air has been a preferred carrier for locals flying between Bonaire and Curacao, mainly due to their on-time performance and friendly service. Up until now, Divi only flew Islander planes which could accommodate 8 passengers with limited luggage capabilities, and many times they were solidly booked weeks, or sometimes months, in advance.
Although many of Bonaire’s visitors take advantage of the increased non-stop flights to Bonaire, there are still many who prefer to fly into either Aruba or Curacao, mainly because there are more mid-week options. Having reliable service between the ABC Islands (Aruba, Bonaire, and Curacao) is vitally important, and with the addition of Divi’s two new Twin Otter planes, adding Aruba to the flight schedule is now possible.
The details of the revised flight schedule including the Twin Otters are being finalized but should be available shortly via Divi’s website.
