Guadeloupe-based airline Air Caraibes is adding a major new Airbus A350 XWB aircraft to its fleet.
The airline is based in Guadeloupe and operates both around the Caribbean and between the Caribbean and France.
It is the first French airline to take delivery of the A350.
The new plane is the latest aircraft from Airbus, with features like 40 percent larger windows than the Airbus A330 and a lighter construction composition that will make the transatlantic trip in about 20 minutes less than average, the company said.
The plane will be making its first trip on Thursday.
