Air France launches new Caribbean flights

Air France has launched flights to Guadeloupe and Martinique from Charles de Gaulle airport in Paris.

The twice weekly services will operate from November 4th and will run in addition to the airline’s Paris-Orly flights.

“This is an exciting development for UK passengers looking to travel to the French Caribbean,” said Henri Hourcade, general manager UK and Ireland at Air France KLM.

“The new services from the Air France hub at Charles de Gaulle airport will be greatly beneficial for transferring passengers who will be able to connect effortlessly to their flight to the Caribbean instead of travelling across Paris to Orly airport for their connection.”

In 2010 Air France was nominated by the prestigious World Travel Awards as Europe’s Leading Airline.
