Description topics

Inbound tourism by air
Visitors who arrived by plane on Bonaire, St Eustatius or Saba. An airplane passenger is counted as a visitor, when he or she is not registered in the population register of the island in question (PIVA). So it is not just about people travelling for their ' pleasure ', but also about people travelling for other purposes such as business and health.

Note that passengers who live in Curaçao, Aruba or St Maarten and fly to Bonaire, St Eustatius or Saba are also counted as visitors. The shares from Curaçao, St Maarten or Aruba are indicated in the table "Caribbean Netherlands: inbound tourism by air; nationality". Visitors who live on Bonaire, St. Eustatius or Saba and who visit one of these Dutch islands are not counted, because this concerns domestic tourism.
