Air Antilles Express has launched its first-ever service between St Maarten and Pointe-a-Pitre, Guadeloupe.

The service could provide a boost for Guadeloupe’s bid to attract more tourists from the United States market, as St Maarten is a major hub for flights from the United States.

The thrice-weekly service is being operated on Thursdays, Saturdays and Sundays.

Air Antilles Express made its first flight between the two Caribbean destinations last week.

The St Maarten-Guadeloupe service is part of a wider expansion for the company across the region.

The regional carrier launched another new flight out of Guadeloupe at the end of last year, serving Antigua.
