Air Antilles launches second route from Guadeloupe to St Martin
Air Antilles has introduced thrice-weekly (Mondays, Fridays and Sundays) flights on the 260-kilometre route between its main base at Point-a-Pitre (PTP) in Guadeloupe and Saint Maarten (SXM) on the Dutch half of the island of Saint Martin. The service, which began on 16 February, will be operated by the airline’s 48-seat ATR 42s and the airline will face no direct competition. This will complement the airline’s existing service from Guadeloupe to Grand Case Airport (SFG) on the French half of Saint Martin, which it currently serves with 25 weekly flights. Air Antilles operates around 250 flights per week with 100 of these on the airline’s main route between Point-a-Pitre and Fort-de-France, which is a flight of less than 200 kilometres.
