Sometimes its cheaper to book a flight on the bigger airport of Curacao and buy a single return ticket from Curacao to Bonaire. These arilines operate small airplanes and a flight from Curacao to Bonaire is only 25 minutes. Be careful! Some of these airlines are known to cancel flights or not being on time, so if you don’t like to take risks – book a flight with just one booking agency or airline.
