Corendon Dutch Airlines will start flights from its home base at Amsterdam Schiphol Airport in The Netherlands to Natal, Brazil. The airline will begin the route in November 2019 and will operate the service with a Boeing 737. It is not yet known on which day(s) the route will be served.

Natal will be Corendon Dutch Airlines’ first destination in Latin America. Currently, the airline flies from Amsterdam, Eindhoven, Groningen, Maastricht, and Rotterdam to destinations in Europe, Africa, and Asia, most of which are holiday destinations.

Travel time to Natal will be between 10.5 and 11 hours. During the flight, there will be a short stop-over at Banjul Airport in Gambia. After refueling, the flight will continue to Natal. Banjul, the capital of the Gambia, is already in Corendon Dutch Airlines’ network. At the time of writing, flights to Natal are only available if a hotel room is bundled into the fare.

Corendon Dutch Airlines was founded in 2010 by the Turkish leisure airline Corendon Airlines. Corendon Dutch Airlines owns two Boeing 737-800 aircraft. It leases another to Divi Divi Air. With just three aircraft, the airline is the smallest in the Netherlands.

Next year, Corendon Dutch Airlines will expand its fleet when it receives its first Boeing 737 MAX 9. One year later, Corendon Dutch Airlines will receive another Boeing 737 MAX 9 to replace the oldest 737-800. Meanwhile, aircraft from the parent airline Corendon Airlines are operating some services between the Netherlands and Turkey for Corendon Dutch.
