In addition to the local economy, this is also disappointing news for the aviation and travel industry: Curaçao was one of the few “yellow” sun destinations and was also excluded from Prime Minister Rutte’s call not to travel abroad. That is why it has been very popular lately.
The big tour operators do not offer holidays in orange areas. TUI currently has 1900 travelers on Curaçao. “These travelers can end their vacation and in principle stay on their planned return flight,” said spokeswoman Petra Kok to this website.
“We will not be bringing any new package travelers to Curacao from tomorrow. We will also inform customers who have booked a flight to Curacao in the coming weeks. If they so wish, we will look for an alternative for them.” Otherwise, they can request a refund.
KLM also flies to Curaçao, but was not available to answer.
The remaining sun destinations with a yellow travel advisory are Bonaire, St. Maarten, Aruba and the Canary Islands. However, there is an appeal for the latter not to travel abroad.
