Currently, Southwest Airlines is offering direct flights from Baltimore and Washington DC to Aruba on Saturdays.
The itinerary for the Orlando - Aruba connection includes daily direct flights.
According to the Minister of Tourism Dangui Oduber, these new Orlando flights are significant for the tourism of Aruba, as it increases the maximum seat capacity and makes the outlook for the remainder of 2022 positive. In the remaining months of 2022, the recovery of Aruba tourism will exceed the tourism level seen in 2019.
Southwest Airlines based its decision to resume the Orlando - Aruba route on Aruba’s sound performance during the pandemic.
It also indicates that Aruba is one of the most resilient destinations in the entire Caribbean, based on the number of confirmed visitors during the summer months, according to the report of the Caribbean Hotel and Tourism Association.
