Looking for flights to Bonaire? We have all the general information you need to get you on your way to a great dive vacation in Bonaire.


Bonaire Airport


Bonaire's airport is the Flamingo International Airport. It is located about 3 miles south of the capital Kralendijk so it is a short drive into town.
Departing from Flamingo International Airport

When you leave Bonaire, you will have to pay an airport tax of US$34 (if your final destination is CuraƧao, St. Maarten, St. Eustatius, Saba or Aruba the tax is US$7).

You pay the tax at the round booth which is right in front of the area where you check in for flights.

The airport code for Bonaire is BON.

Flights to Bonaire From the US and Canada


Bonaire is served by several airlines. Some flights are seasonal so be sure to check the airline's website for the latest information.

Non-stop flights are offered weekly by Delta and Continental.

Delta offers a direct flight to Bonaire on Saturdays from Atlanta (airport code ATL). In October 2009 they will be adding a second weekly nonstop flight to Bonaire departing Atlanta on Friday evening.

They have also recently added a new nonstop flight to Bonaire from JFK (New York city) on Saturdays.


Continental also offers weekly non-stop flights from both Newark (airport code EWR) and Houston (HOU) to Bonaire. Be forewarned - the Newark flight is a red-eye flight and departs Newark at 11:55 pm on Saturday evening and arrives in Bonaire at 5:40 am on Sundays. The return flight is on Sundays at 6:50 am.

American Airlines used to offers flights to Bonaire from San Juan, Puerto Rico three times a week. This will be stopped at the end of April 2009. American has cut back on several of their routes to the Caribbean so keep an eye on their schedule no matter where you are flying. We found out about their cutbacks the hard way - you can read all about it in our Bonaire scuba diving trip report.
