Bonaire Increases Airlift and BonairExpress Appoints New CEO

With the new Continental Airlines service from Houston in place and the announcement of a new flight schedule from BonairExpress there are more options for getting to Bonaire.
Beginning December 16, 2005 Continental Airlines will launch a weekly
non-stop flight from its Houston hub to/from Bonaire.

The scheduled round-trip air service will depart Houston George Bush Intercontinental Airport on Fridays at 11:30 p.m., arriving in Bonaire
on Saturdays at 6:15 a.m. (flight #1898). The return flight #1899 to Houston will depart Bonaire at 8:00 a.m., arriving in Houston at 10:50 a.m.

Continental Airlines will use a Boeing 737 airplane with 124 seats including 12 first class seats.

Additionally at BonairExpress a new CEO, Mr. Van Pallant has been
appointed. With extensive experience leading restructuring projects at KLM, Mr. Van Pallant has already made great strides in making service a top priority and as result the airline’s on-time record has
improved significantly to 89%.

The airline’s cancellation percentage has also decreased to just 2%.  To further improve customer service the airline will be opening a call center in September 2005.
