Norwegian Launching New Routes to Martinique


Getting to one of the Caribbean’s most fascinating destinations is getting easier — and cheaper.

Low-cost carrier Norwegian is launching two new routes to the French Caribbean island of Martinique, and they’ll be among the region’s lowest fares.

Beginning Oct. 30, Norwegian will operate flights from both Fort Lauderdale and Providence, Rhode Island to Martinique.

The Fort Lauderdale flights will operate on Mondays, Wednesdays and Sundays, while the Providence flights will operate on Mondays and Fridays.

Norwegian recently announced it would be increasing its existing New York-Martinique service to four flights each week.

“The boost air service from the US is indeed as pledge of commitment from Norwegian Air, one of our closest industry partners and also a reflection of the growing  popularity of the island on the U.S market”, said Muriel Wiltord, Director Americas of the Martinique Promotion Bureau.  “Martinique Magnifique is definitely more affordable and accessible than ever.”

“This allows more and more American travelers to discover such a hidden gem in the Caribbean,” said Thomas Ramdahl, Chief Commercial Officer  at Norwegian. “It’s now easier and more affordable than ever to fly to the French Caribbean, and we’ve seen a significant increase in visitors to Martinique as a result of our flights and cooperation with the tourist board.”

Martinique’s tourism hub of Trois Ilets was named Caribbean Journal’s number one destination to visit in 2017 at the beginning of the year.
