About The Airport
Curaçao International Airport, located on the beautiful Dutch Caribbean island of Curaçao, connects Europe, the Americas, and the Caribbean. The modern and comfortable Curaçao International Airport is served by several valued airline partners. Any part of the world is accessible thanks to Star, OneWorld and SkyTeam alliances. The Curaçao International Airport has one of the longest runways in the Caribbean, capable of accommodating the industry’s largest commercial aircrafts.
In the early fall of 2014, Curaçao International Airport opened a brand-new General Aviation Center, JetCentre Curaçao, offering premier service to those exclusive travelers in a luxurious separate building with private entrance and exit and special amenities.
Our Retail, Duty Free and Food & Beverage selection offers a wide variety of items and includes a commercial plaza in front of the terminal building.

Curaçao International Airport is conveniently located within a twenty-minute ride to downtown historic Punda - a UNESCO World Heritage site characterized by fun entertainment, restaurants, and great shopping. Curaçao International Airport is proud to be of service.
Curaçao Airport Partners (CAP) is a consortium of the private international investors Aport (Zurich Airport), Janssen De Jong (Netherlands) and CCR (Brazil). CAP has a 30-year concession agreement with the Government of Curaçao and as the private airport operator has taken the financial, operational, and development risk of Curaçao International Airport since 2003 up to and until 2033.
CAP has taken the financial, operational, and development risk of the airport from the Government and put it into private hands. This has resulted in optimal managerial and financial efficiency, while achieving and exceeding international standards in airport operations and management. Before the airport was privatized, the airport (Government) was losing millions of guilders annually. Before the COVID-19 pandemic, the airport is generating millions of US$ that goes directly to the Government via Curaçao Airport Holding. CAP sees a very promising future for Curaçao and will do its part to make certain that the full potential of the airport is achieved.
CAP’s expanded business view is to be a driving force of regional socio-economic growth and sustainable development, and a recognized aviation leader by engaging passengers and business partners with an exceptional experience.
