Description topics

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

Notice that passengers living in Curaçao, Aruba or St. Maarten, and flying to Bonaire, St. Eustatius or Saba, are also counted as tourists. In this table is indicated which share of the tourists from Curaçao, St. Maarten or Aruba is concerned.
