First passenger flight with Dreamliner to Curacao


WILLEMSTAD - The first Arkefly intercontinental flight with the Dreamliner will arrive on June 12 at Hato Airport. The first landing of a Dreamliner passenger flight on Curacao soil will be celebrated with a festive welcome. The Boeing 787 will also fly to Bonaire on this day.

The aircraft was recently named ‘Dreamcatcher’ via the social media action: Name the Plane.

Arke is the first Dutch airline that will fly with the Dreamliner. The airline will receive three Boeing 787 Dreamliners, which will be used to operate the Curacao, Aruba and Bonaire routes. “With this new acquisition, we will also improve comfort,” the airlines said.

“The cabin pressure is higher so the body can absorb more oxygen during the flight. The traveler will be less bothered by fatigue, headache, and will arrive more relaxed to his or her destination. The windows of the Dreamliner are larger. The traveler may also adjust the light intensity and in addition, the Dreamliner is more durable, more spacious and faster.” In addition, the aircraft has more legroom and extra baggage allowance.

“The Dreamliner is not only nice to fly,
but also less harmful to the environment; the unit is 60 percent quieter than other aircraft and consumes 20 percent less fuel and CO2 per passenger,” the airline said. The flight schedule will also be extended.
