American has also upgraded its capacity on the route, with double the amount of seats on each Miami-Fort-de-France flight. 

It’s a significant boost for an island that is still one of the best-kept secrets in the Caribbean, with the kind of infrastructure you’d expect to find in mainland France married with a remarkable blend of Caribbean personality and beauty.
