DAE has it's days..it's like any Caribbean airline..when it's good, it's good..Tiara starts soon....Take either...it's a crap shoot.

There are several airlines that fly between the islands, these are:

Dae: http://flydae.com/

(6 flights on weekdays, 5 on weekends between BON-CUR)

(5 flights a day except sunday which has 4 between AUA-CUR)

Insel Air: http://fly-inselair.com/

(2 Flights a week between BON-CUR)

(2 Daily Flights between AUA-CUR)

Tiara Air: http://www.tiara-air.com/

(2 Daily Flights between AUA-CUR)

(6 Weekly flights between AUA-BON)


Divi Divi: http://baibini.com/

(Only flies between CUR-BON, atleast 6 a day)


I would suggest using DAE, as they have the most flight, best schedule and are the most reliable(for the route you are flying, Divi Divi between Curacao and Bonaire is the most reliable).

DAE technically also flies AUA-BON, the plane just makes a short stop in Curacao to drop off and pick up some passengers(you just stay on the plane during this time).

DAE is a fine airline, I fly them all the time between CUR-AUA/BON/SXM, don't have any complaints, always on time, great. Not that they don't ever have delays, but usualy don't(they had an on time rate of over 91% last year).

Kind regards,
