New Insel flight to Bonaire announced with $366 Roundtrip introductory fare

(DiverWire) – Recently, one of the biggest challenges for divers wanting to travel to Bonaire has been the lack of flights. That’s why today’s announcement by the Bonaire Tourism Corporation is very timely for scuba diving travelers. According to the release sent out by TCB,  Insel Air is introducing new service from Charlotte, NC to Bonaire on Wednesdays and Saturdays.

If that wasn’t enough, Insel officials have also announced an introductory round-trip airfare of just $366. This fare is available for a limited time with special restrictions, but for divers, there couldn’t be better news from Bonaire.

“We are thrilled to welcome these new Insel Air flights, which compliment the airline’s existing nonstop service to island from Miami,” said Lara Chirino, Director of Tourism for Tourism Corporation Bonaire.  “The timing of the Charlotte service is ideal to allow for passengers to connect from more US and Canadian gateway cities, thereby effectively broadening our visitor market base.”

The booking window for the introductory fare is valid now through August 13, 2011, for travel until December 14, 2011. The fare includes government taxes, surcharges and the Bonaire airport departure tax.
