Air Canada is expanding its service to Curaçao in good time for the summer season. The expanded service is helping to boost airlift after witnessing a substantial increase at the end of last year with new flights offered by JetBlue.
Following modest growth of 2.5 percent in 2014, the island has seen big increases so far in 2015, with a 13.7 percent increase in stay over arrivals in the first two months of this year, according to data from the Caribbean Tourism Organization (CTO).
Janice: After living and working in Toronto Canada for a couple of years, Janice returned to the island and worked on a project with the Curaçao Government. With the completion of this project and being very interested in real estate she now embraces the opportunity to work with RE/MAX as agent. Janice is very passionate about Sales, Marketing and Interior Design and is looking forward to explore these channels. Speaking Dutch, English, Spanish and Papiamentu we think Janice is a great addition to our team.

While living in the Netherlands he finished his education HBO Architecture (speciality Real Estate & Project Development) and graduated Master Real Estate Management.

The Committee Guera na Kòrsou?! War in Curaçao 1940-1945 aims to promote the fact that in May 2015 we will be remembering the beginning of World War 2 (75 years) as well as its end (70 years) in Curaçao. The goal is to safeguard the memories and importance of World War II by highlighting the important role of our island during the war, and the big impact of the war on Curaçao.
