USAir and Insel Interline Agreement

December 8, 2009

Bonaire- USAir and Insel Air (Miami) have signed an interline agreement meaning there is now a combined ticketing and baggage agreement creating another simple way to get to Bonaire. If you are in a USAir hub such at BWI, Charlotte, PHL or the many other hubs, you can now  get ticketed straight to Bonaire on the Sat. flight.  Your luggage goes straight to Bonaire and you have boarding passes in hand. Easy peasy.  Check out Insel at http://www.fly-inselair.com/ or call USAir today. Insel flies non stop Sat. to Bonaire from MIA and with stops weekdays in CUR and then onward.

Getting to Bonaire

February 3, 2009

As a travel agent I have learned the most current ways to scour the internet for the best possible deals for my clients. My favorite search engine is http://www.yapta.com. You may download the software free and enter in your flights for as many trips as needed. Yapta will automatically notify you if the fare drops. I have seen AA flights fluctuate hundreds of dollars in one day. Yapta has saved my clients and I thousands of dollars. Kayak is a great site. You have to know how to fine tune your searches but their daily or weekly email alerts are great. Presently we have Sat. non stops from JFK (Delta) and Newark (Continental),  Atlanta (Delta) and Houston (Continental). There is also a non stop Friday night on Continental from Houston.  You may fly AA into San Juan Tue. Thur. and Sat. American Eagle flies from San Juan  to Bonaire but there is a long layover sometimes in Puerto Rico. Never fear, I have done it many times and have great tips on cool things to do so contact me.  Insel flies from Miami to Curacao and on to Bonaire. My client Jerry just flew this route and swears by it. From Amsterdam, Martinaire flies into Curacao. KLM has non stops daily from Amsterdam. Arkefly has two weekly flights from Amsterdam. If you need air from South America, there are many options so contact me, please.  It pays to know your search engines and to use them. I recommend Kayak and Yapta for my Caribbean bound clients.
