On Tuesday (July 4, 2023), WestJet announced the launch of new once weekly service between Toronto and Bonaire from December 12, 2023. As part of the Dutch Caribbean, Bonaire is in the Leeward Antilles in the Caribbean sea. The island is known for its globally acclaimed shore diving and wind surfing and is an ideal destination for warm weather, adventure-seeking Canadians. With the new route, WestJet will become the only Canadian airline offering scheduled nonstop service to the stunning Dutch Caribbean island of Bonaire.

In Tuesday’s announcement, WestJet’s Vice President – Network Planning, Alliances and Commercial Development, Chris Avery, said,

“WestJet is excited to bring the beauty and allure of Bonaire to Canadian travellers looking to trade in their winter routines for world-renowned adventure and pristine white beaches. As we look towards the colder months ahead and our exciting growth plan, we are more committed than ever to expanding our network, offering unforgettable experiences and connecting our guests to remarkable destinations like Bonaire.”

Also commenting on the new service, Tourism Corporation Bonaire’s CEO, Miles Mercera, said,

“We are very happy to welcome our friends in the North to our beautiful island this winter via this first of its kind route. Canada continues to be a vital connection for Bonaire, with Canada ranking among our top 10 performing markets. This historic new connectivity helps answer the demand of tourism interest in the island, which we expect to only increase during the colder months.”

In 27 years of service, WestJet has cut airfares for Canadians in half and increased the flying population around Canada by over 50 percent. The airline launched in 1996 with three aircraft, 250 employees and five destinations, and has now grown to more than 180 aircraft and 14,000 employees, offering service to over 110 destinations in 24 countries.
