It’s always been one of the nicest airports in the Caribbean: the Poles Caraibes Airport in Guadeloupe.
And now, thanks to a dramatic transformation project, it’s getting even cooler.
Poles Caraibes is in the midst of a $283 million investment project that will allow the airport to welcome three million passengers annually.
The project, which is running through 2027, is starting off with a revamp of the food and beverage offerings.
That includes the opening of a new world-class eatery, Bleu Caraibe, led by renowned Chef Jimmy Bibrac, which will be set on the departure level.
That’s along with the first-ever rum bar in a Caribbean airport: Rhumba, which will showcase the Guadeloupe archipelago’s spectacular rum products.
On the arrival level, the airport this year is debuting a pair of new options: a Starucks cafe and, in a development particularly welcome or arriving guests staying in visitors, a Carrefour market.
