The French Caribbean island of Martinique is back on the tourist map in a big way, in large part due to ramped up airlift from destinations like New York and Miami.
Now, the airlift renaissance is continuing.
After a successful first winter season, Norwegian will be resuming its nonstop flights to Martinique later this year.
The low-cost European carrier will be relaunching its nonstop flights from Baltimore-Washington, Boston and New York’s John F Kennedy airport on Nov. 10.
Norwegian first began its nonstop service between the US and Martinique last December.
The flights will operate three times per week from New York and twice per week from Baltimore and Boston, respectively.
“This winter’s air service to Martinique with Norwegian is a great success, and US visitors are enthusiastically discovering this gem in the heart of the Caribbean that is Martinique,” said Muriel Wiltord, Director Americas for the Martinique Promotion Bureau. “Having Norwegian announce its service to Fort-de-France for 2016/17 is truly exciting. Our US visitors will be able to book early for the next winter season at an excellent rate, while benefiting from modern and comfortable air service.”
Flights to both Martinique and Guadeloupe begin as low as $49 one-way, including taxes.
“We are pleased to see the positive response from American travelers who are now enjoying easier access and affordable fares to the Caribbean, and if demand continues to grow, we hope to make this a year-round service,” said Thomas Ramdahl, Norwegian’s Chief Commercial Officer.
Norwegian operates the service on Boeing 737-800 aircraft.
