Azul announces direct flight from Brazil to Curaçao
The Curaçao Tourist Board (CTB) announces that Azul from Brazil will start with a direct weekly flight to Curaçao on June 24. Azul is Brazil’s largest airline with regard to the number of routes and the number of destinations served, with over 900 daily flights to more than 150 destinations. The flight to Curaçao will depart from the BH Airport in the city of Belo Horizonte in the state of Minas Gerais. The new flight comes as the result of growing demand from the Brazilian market. It is also due to the efforts and good collaboration between local stakeholders such as Curaçao Airport Partners (CAP), Curaçao Airport Holding (CAH), and CTB.
The flight will be on Saturdays, leaving from Brazil in the morning and the return flight will leave from Curaçao on Sundays. Brazil is a growing market for Curaçao, and this new connection is an important one in order to keep growing the market. According to the Minister of Economic Development, Mr. Ruisandro Cijntje, “we had an excellent recovery in the number of stayover tourists in 2022 with a 106% growth compared to 2019. The decision to stay active in the Brazilian market was surely a good decision. We can say that this new direct flight will certainly produce a good result for the Brazilian market. Besides, this Azul flight will also provide more travel connections for our local people”.
CTB is very pleased that this new route will bring us more tourists who will come experience the unique product that Curaçao has to offer.
