American Airlines is set to relaunch another route from Miami to the French Caribbean, Caribbean Journal has learned.
On Nov. 6, American Airlines will resume flights from Miami to Pointe-a-Pitre, Guadeloupe.
The nonstop flights will be operating twice weekly, with service on Tuesdays and Saturdays, the Guadeloupe Islands Tourist Board confirmed.
The news comes as American Airlines is set to resume its popular service from Miami to Martinique a few days prior.
The new flight complements existing service from to Guadeloupe on Air France, which launched over the summer.
Air France currently operates flights to Pointe a Pitre from both Miami and New York’s John F Kennedy International Airport.
The country’s entry protocols mirror those of the rest of the French Caribbean, with a required negative test within 72 hours before arrival and proof of vaccination.
The relaunch of American flights is a major boost for Guadeloupe’s tourism industry, which was hit hard by a number of lockdowns in the second half of 2021.
Another carrier, JetBlue, is relaunching its service to Guadeloupe later this year.
On Dec. 18, the New York City-based airline will return to Guadeloupe with three weekly flights, on Mondays, Wednesdays and Saturdays.
