Air Antilles, which in the previous week launched its second route from Guadeloupe to St Martin, has commenced two international routes this week, with both new services beginning on 18 February. The first new island pair is from Fort-de-France (FTF) in Martinique to San Juan (SJU) in Puerto Rico. Flown thrice-weekly by the Caribbean airline’s ATR 42-500s, the service will operate via Pointe-a-Pitre weekly on the outbound flight, but with all three inbound flights stopping off at the largest city in Guadeloupe. Competition on the Fort-de-France to San Juan sector comes from a four times weekly service from Seaborne Airlines. The second new island pair is from Pointe-a-Pitre (PTP) in Guadaloupe to Dominica (DOM) in Dominica. Again flown thrice-weekly by Air Antilles’ ATR 42-500s, the service will face competition from one incumbent, namely LIAT (thrice-weekly). In addition, this airport pair is also operated by Air Antilles’ new partner Winair (thrice-weekly) as part of their strategic Caribbean alliance.
