Corsair adds direct route from Bordeaux to Pointe-à-Pitre
From 19 December 2021, Corsair will be flying direct to Guadeloupe from Bordeaux Airport, facilitating access to the Caribbean from the Nouvelle-Aquitaine region. Corsair will, therefore, be offering services to the inhabitants of south-west France, consolidating its position as a go-to airline for French destinations overseas after announcing flights from Lyon, Marseille Provence and Nantes Atlantique airports.
This winter, inhabitants of the Nouvelle-Aquitaine region will be able to sun themselves in Guadeloupe thanks to direct flights from Bordeaux to Pointe-à-Pitre. The airline has scheduled weekly flights every Sunday, from 19 December 2021 to 1 May 2022.

Guadeloupe, a multi-faceted destination
Guadeloupe is a dream for all travellers: nature lovers will set out to explore the La Soufrière volcano, those with a sweet tooth can visit the sugar plantations, and those who want to chill will enjoy the island’s gorgeous beaches.
Travellers will not only be able to take advantage of summery temperatures in the depths of mainland winter, meet up with family and benefit from the local tourism offer. Guadeloupe is also an ideal destination for year-end festivities. Furthermore, Caribbean islanders will have direct access to Bordeaux and the Nouvelle-Aquitaine region, with its wine routes and magnificent landscapes lining the ocean.
“We are delighted to have the long-haul airline Corsair on the Bordeaux runway,” said Thierry Couloumies, Chairman of the Bordeaux Airport Executive Board. “This flight to Guadeloupe provides easy access to yet another French overseas destination from Bordeaux. It provides an opportunity for a fabulous getaway in the sunshine for inhabitants of Nouvelle-Aquitaine in the depths of winter, with the simplicity of a direct flight at an attractive rate. This route is also a fantastic opportunity to develop trade between the French Caribbean and our region, which boasts one of the largest Caribbean communities in France.”
Pascal de Izaguirre, President and Chief Executive Officer of Corsair, commented: “After facilitating access to the French Caribbean from Lyon and Nantes, this direct flight from Bordeaux to Pointe-à-Pitre consolidates yet further our growing range serving large cities in mainland France. Corsair shows yet again its determination to diversify French overseas destinations in order to offer its clients an even greater choice, contribute to developing tourism and facilitating territorial continuity for mainland residents from overseas territories.”
