Curaçao wants to attract more German tourists
WILLEMSTAD - In an effort to pay more attention to the German market and to let it grow, the Curaçao Hospitality and Tourism Association (CHATA) has signed a cooperation agreement with Atraveo, a German online booking engine.
The reservation site has with Curaçao a third Caribbean destination in the range of German travelers now with an additional Air Berlin flight that will be launched this winter. Atraveo is part of TUI and specializes in holiday apartments and homes, of which there are already 250,000 listed in Europe and the rest of the world.
“The German market is stable and the additional flight confirms the confidence in Curaçao as a destination,” said CHATA that indicates that in anticipation of the second Air Berlin flight's emphasis will be focused on promoting small accommodations.
“Since the start of the Small Accommodation Program in June, there are now 23 Chata Certified Small Accommodations added. To become a member, tourism officials will conduct an audit to see if the accommodation meets the minimum requirements. If an accommodation can get through this audit, then it will be able to join CHATA. It will get a Small Accommodation Certification Award and the benefits of the relationship with Atraveo and additional promotion.”
According to Director of CHATA, Lizanne Dindial, the partnership is strategically and logically the successful connection between Dusseldorf and Curacao with Air Berlin.
