Roger believes our airport has a lot of potential, and dreams of one day experiencing our airport as one that’s able to connect the world by plane. “At one point I envisioned that Curaçao had the big jet bridges connected to the plane like major airports had. This is now a reality. Why couldn’t the international hub Curaçao become a reality too?”
