Two Eastern Caribbean neighbors are getting even closer.
Guadeloupe-based air carrier Air Caraibes has added a new ATR 72 to its fleet to operate thrice-weekly flights between Martinique and St. Lucia.
The new 74-seat plane is the first ATR in the company’s fleet.
“We want to announce that we are going to operate flights from Martinique to Saint Lucia until April, three times a week on Friday Saturday and Sunday, and I think it’s good news because passengers from Martinique will spend weekends at the hotels [which] is a good thing for tourism in Saint Lucia,” said Air Caraibes CEO Olivier Bresnard.
The service also gives travelers additional options for island hopping vacations combining Martinique and St. Lucia.
