Flights from Europe
Flights from Europe are widely available. Non-stop flights are available from Amsterdam (Netherlands) and many more flights
from a lot of other European cities, flying to Amsterdam first. Due to the strong network of KLM in Europe, this carrier
offers the most reliable connections. But you can also choose to take a low cost airline to Amsterdam and from there flying
one of the major airlines who has Curacao on its destination list.
KLM offers daily flights, always non-stop. KLM brings you in 8-9 hours to and from Curaçao to Amsterdam, The Netherlands.
They fly a MD-11 on this route. Due to this nonstop-service the chance for delays is minimal compared with other airlines.

seats (31 inch seat pitch, 79 cm) and business class (60 inch seat pitch, 150cm).
Arkefly offers 6 flights a week from Amsterdam to Curaçao. Flight schedules are determined about 6 months in advance. On the
