The Bonaire Flight Schedule
There are several international carriers serving our island, making it relatively easy to get here. There is non-stop service (via Miami, Houston, Newark, Atlanta, Curaçao, or Aruba) as well as one-stop service from numerous points in the United States or from Europe (Amsterdam).
All visitors must pay a Visitor Tax of $75 per visit to Bonaire. This applies to all non-residents aged 13 and older. The Visitor Tax is mandatory for all non-residents traveling by plane or boat. The Visitor Tax can be paid online in advance up to 7 days before your arrival or upon arrival at the airport. Please make sure you use the link provided. If a website tries to charge you more than $75, then it is not the official website. For more questions, visit the FAQ page.
As of January 2023, cruise ship passengers pay a visitor tax of $10 per visit.
