More Travelers are Visiting Martinique

By: Caribbean Journal Staff - December 3, 2019

The French Caribbean department of Martinique continues to draw more travelers in 2019. 

The island, one of the Caribbean’s most fascinating and culturally rich destinations, saw a 6.1 percent increase in stayover visitor arrivals through the first half of 2019, according to a recent report from the Barbados-based Caribbean Tourism Organization. 

And that growth seems to have continued at a similar pace, according to newly-released data from the island’s primary airport. 

Indeed, Martinique’s Aime Cesaire International Airport continues to show strong growth in 2019, according to the latest numbers released by the facility. 

Aime Cesaire Airport handled 1.725 million passengers through the end of October, a 5.15 percent increase compared to the same period in 2018. 

That brings the airport closer to its stated goal of reaching 2 million passengers in 2020, officials said in a statement. 

The growth has been buoyed by a 24.15 percent increase in international traffic, with 5.75 percent growth in domestic traffic within France and its overseas departments. 

It’s an important sign as Martinique continues to seek new airlift, particularly from the all-important United States market.
