Bonaire present at the Annual World Routes Conference

TCB

The Annual World Routes Conference which took place on September 20th thru 23rd in Chicago, Illinois was a very productive event for Bonaire!

The Bonaire delegation was headed by Commissioner of Tourism Edsel Winklaar, TCB Director of Tourism Ethsel Pieternella, and Candice Adams Kimmel, the TCB Representative in North America. The delegation held substantive discussions with the largest number of registered carriers ever accepting Bonaire’s request for a meeting. 

The meetings were focused on the Airlines with service to the three Bonaire source markets of North America, Europe and Latin America, which included AZUL, COPA, LANTAM, KLM, Delta Airlines, United Airlines, JetBlue, American Airlines, Southwest Airlines, WestJet and InterCaribbean Airways. Latin American carries were provided with the South American Market Analysis from ASM Global. The traffic and yield forecast included in the new study really got the attention of the Latin American carriers. For the North American market, the best news was that the operation of the second Delta flight has been confirmed through peak season next year 2015.
