Bonaire’s flight prohibitions have been extended in connection with the COVID-19 virus.

Based on current information from the Ministries of Infrastructure and Health (RIVM), the decision has been made to extend Bonaire’s flight prohibitions on air traffic with passengers until April 28, 2020.

According to the RIVM, widespread transmission still applies in all countries for which a flight ban has been instituted. The situation has also remained unchanged for the BES islands.

The temporary flight ban aims to prevent the spread of the COVID-19 virus to the aforementioned islands. With a view to uniformity, it has been decided to equalize the end date of all restrictions. The exceptions to Bonaire’s flight prohibitions remain unchanged.


RIVM continuously monitors the global situation. In China and South Korea, measures are being scaled slowly. However, RIVM advises waiting first to see what the effect will be on the number of patients before reducing the flight restriction for these countries.

The flight bans below have been imposed for civil air traffic in the airspace over Bonaire, St. Eustatius, and Saba for air traffic for the purpose of passenger transport.
