Renovations Flamingo Airport (BON)
Thursday, 10 February 2011 16:06


Dear Guests,

We have received notification from Bonaire International Airport NV (BIA) that as of February 13th, 2011 the following work will be scheduled at Flamingo Airport:

• Complete Runway Renovation
• New Runway Turning Bays
• Runway Markings, Lightings & Signs
• Approach Lights
• Electrical Systems and Tower Interface
• Complete New Airport Fence on expanded airport terrain
• New Rescue & Fire Fighting Station Access Road

To be able to realize this it is necessary to close Flamingo airport for 10 consecutive hours starting from February 13 till July 2011 and have been scheduled in the evening hours.
Please find attached the scheduled working hours.

Looking at the schedule it seems that none of the direct flights to and from Bonaire to and from the United States (Delta airlines, Continental Airlines and Insel Air) or Europe (KLM and Arke) are affected by the scheduled working hours. The flights that are affected are the inter island flights between Bonaire, Curacao and Aruba (DAE, Insel Air and Tiara Air) that are scheduled to arrive in the evening hours. We expect the airlines to reschedule or cancel these flights.

Please feel free to contact us if there are any questions. Although we understand the importance of the scheduled work, we would like to apologize for any inconvenience this might cause.

US History Channel’s Stan Lee’s Super Human features Patrick Musimu at Buddy Dive
Tuesday, 26 October 2010 18:40

For those who did not had the opportunity to visit our resort during the Buddy Dive Freediving Event 2010 last May, or for those who would like to be remembered to this amazing event we’re now able to share the episode of US History’s Stan Lee’s Super Human that features Patrick Musimu and Buddy Dive!



With the help of Buddy Dive’s staff and with all the safety issues in mind, Patrick Musimu, who was the first freediver to descend more then 200 meters (610 ft), together with Karol Meyer, Brazilian freediving specialist and holder of several records one being the world record of 18 minutes and 32 seconds in the Static Apnea discipline, broke the world record in the “Tandem No Limit” discipline at Bonaire in front of Buddy Dive Resort last May.

US History Channel took their chance to come to Bonaire during the event to shoot video material and interview Patrick for their show Stan Lee’s Super Humans. It turned out to be a great video.
