Tiara Air Begins New Inter-Island Flight Service from Bonaire to Aruba

On Friday, July 20th, 2007, there will be an inaugural celebration at Bonaire’s Flamingo Airport when Tiara Air begins her direct non-stop service Aruba-Bonaire, with six weekly flights on board Shorts 360 aircrafts with 33 seats.  This new service may make it easier for some visitors from North America to fly into Aruba and then connect non-stop to Bonaire, or hop over to either Curacao or Aruba for day trips.

Camilo Muyale, commercial manager of Tiara Air, proudly announced that effective with this inaugural flight, a promotional round trip airfare of AWG 325.00 is currently in effect, with children ages 2 to 11 at half price.

The itinerary will be:  Mondays, Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays: Aruba-Bonaire, leaving 9:45 AM, arriving in Bonaire 10:30 AM.  After a quick turn around, Bonaire-Aruba, will depart 11:00 AM, arriving in Aruba 11:45 AM. 

On Fridays and Sundays, Tiara Air also operates an Aruba-Bonaire flight leaving at 7:00 PM, arriving Bonaire at 7:45 PM. With another quick turn around, BonaireľAruba will depart at 8:15 PM arriving in Aruba at 9:00.

AH Services, under the leadership of Dudley Lourens, will handle the Tiara Air flights on Bonaire.  They can be reached at telephone +599-717-2005, +599-717-3668 and +599-717-3598 for sales and ticket reservations.  Additionally, all travel agents on Bonaire will have the capability to sell Tiara Air tickets.

Note Update July 23, 2007: Tiara Air Short 360 took off Friday morning from Aruba’s airport on its way to Bonaire’s Flamingo International Airport, a 45-minute flight.  Onboard were Tiara management, dignitaries and press members. The aircraft was welcomed by Bonaire’s Lt. Governor Herbert Domacasse, Minister Elvis Chin, and Deputy Anthony Nicolaas.  Ronella Croes from the TCB helped meet and greet the aircraft with 33 visitors on board. Tiara Air’s Managing Director Alejandro Muyale cut a yellow and blue ribbon and declared the Aruba-Bonaire-Aruba flight open.  Images from Friday’s inaugural flight can be viewed on the Bonaire Insider Photo Gallery by clicking here.
