The world’s largest airline has returned to the French Caribbean. 

In a significant boost for the French Caribbean island of Martinique, American has restarted its service from Miami International Airport to Martinique’s Aime Cesaire International Airport just outside of Fort-de-France. 

Initially, the nonstop flights will be operating once weekly on Saturdays.

That number will increase to three flights per week, with service on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays for the Christmas season and the second half of February through March. 

“American Airlines, the largest U.S. airline company is a crucial long-time partner of the Island of Flowers” said Martinique Tourism Commissioner Bénédicte di Geronimo in a statement. “That is why we’re thrilled to welcome back our main U.S. carrier and all its passengers with open arms.”

The flights, which take about three and a half hours, are being operated on American’s Embraer 175 aircraft with 76 seats. 

“With over 35 destinations to the islands, American is your airline to the French Caribbean Island of Martinique, said Evette Negron, Channel Sales Manager at American Airlines. “It is a real pleasure to offer to American travelers the opportunity to discover the beauty and rich history of Martinique in all safety, from the very moment of fastening their seatbelt.”
