What are our options for getting from Curacao to Bonaire on Thursday May 8th? We have purchased Air Jamaica tickets to Curacao on that date and would like to get to Bonaire. Divi emailed and said that their flights were full that afternoon.

TRy Tiara Airlines, Not sure if they fly only from Aruba or also fly from Curacao. Go to the bottom of the page and do a Keyword search.

I couldn't get any flights from CUR to BON. We would probably have to fly to Aurba then to Bonaire, and with only two airplanes, I suspect we would have to spend the night in Curacao or Aruba.

DAE has several flights a day but they are probably the worst airline that I have ever been on. They WILL be late and most likely be very late. They will cancel or combine you flight with a later flight if your flight isn’t full enough. If you miss a connecting flight because they are 4,5 or 6 hours late they will do absolutely nothing to help you. They wouldn’t even help us find a hotel room that we had conceded to pay for our selves.

Thanks, Al. I read the other post concerning your horror story.

At BuddyDive's suggestion, I am trying www.fly-inselair.com; but their website isn't responding to reservation requests. Inselair only flys Fridays and Sundays from Curacao to Bonaire.

Yep. www.flydivi.com. They only fly daytime, but they are the most reliable way to get back and forth. If you have a group of 6 or more, they will even set up a custom flight for your group.

THe OP stated that DIVI was booked that day.

Yesterday while going to the airport to get a diving crew out of Atlanta I saw the new EZAir aircraft parked on the tarmac at the airport I have spoken to someone in the airport bar and they have told me that this airline has started flying from Curacao- Bonaire 4 x a day the aircraft looks very attracting was also told that they will give discount to PADI divers apparently owner also has a diving loge in Curacao on the westside, all west I belive was the name. I could read on the aircraft www.flyezair.com and their side is up.

Thanks for all the ideas. It is too much of a hassle to stay overnight anywhere but BuddyDive, so we decided to grab a Delta $578 trip later in May and deal with the Air Jamaica vouchers later. I'm not sure we can ever use them before they expire since they don't seem to fly to any interesting dive locations from Atlanta.
