Insel Air will begin twice weekly service from Charlotte to Bonaire

Looks like Insel Air is making good on their promise for flights from Charlotte to Bonaire. According to flights stored and available for purchase in SABRE, Travelocity and Expedia, starting Jun 22, 2011, Insel will offer a twice weekly non-stop flight from Charlotte to Curacao with a connection to Bonaire. Flights will operate Wednesdays and Saturdays with the following initial schedules:

  • Charlotte to Curacao: depart 2:25pm-arrive 6:40pm
  • Curacao to Bonaire: depart 9:00pm-arrive 9:25pm
  • Bonaire to Curacao: depart 7:55am-arrive 8:20am
  • Curacao to Charlotte: depart 9:10am-arrive 1:25pm

We’re pricing round trip fares including all taxes (except Bonaire departure tax) at $497.30 per person from Charlotte to Bonaire! Bear in mind that due to airport renovation closures, you’ll only be able to do southbound flights on Saturdays (unless you want to overnight in Curacao, as the airport is closed after 7:45pm on Wednesdays) — at least through announced runway work through July 2011.

A promotional fare may be in store once this is officially announced, along with connecting fares through Charlotte with the agreements in place between Insel and USAir. We’ll keep you posted on this blog as news develops.
