The partnership agreement took effect on October 1 and took the form of a codeshare agreement from Fort-de-France and Pointe-à-Pitre.
The Air Caraibes company (Dubreuil Group) and the Dominican company Sky High Dominicaine have decided to join forces to offer codeshare flights between the cities of Fort-de-France (Martinique) and Pointe-à -Pitre (Guadeloupe) to the Dominican Republic.
In this context, Air Caraibes flights between Santo Domingo and Fort-de-France/Pointe-à-Pitre have been operated since October 1 in code sharing with the company Sky High Dominicana, by Embraer 175 and 190 jets. These devices, more suited to this type of route, make it possible to reduce flight duration. Thus, flights between Santo Domingo and Martinique and Guadeloupe will each last 1h30.
Sky High Dominicana active in 17 Caribbean countries
Flights are operated up to three times per week on Tuesdays, Fridays, and Sundays between Pointe-à-Pitre and Santo Domingo and up to three times per week on Mondays, Thursdays and Saturdays between Fort-de-France and Saint-Domingue. Domingue, Sunday flights from Pointe-à-Pitre, and Saturday from Fort-de-France only operate during high season periods. This agreement strengthens regional possibilities between Guadeloupe, Martinique and the Dominican Republic, while increasing travel opportunities to the Dominican Republic from Paris. Indeed, the frequency of flights offers better connections with transatlantic flights, both for Fort-de-France and for Pointe-à-Pitre.
Sky High Dominicana began operations on October 5, 2012 and operates scheduled and charter flights throughout the Caribbean, northern South America and the United States (seasonal). It serves a total of 24 destinations in 17 countries and territories. It operates a fleet of seven aircraft (5 Embraer 190s, 1 Embraer ERJ 145, 1 Boeing 737-300SF) and will integrate two new Embraer 175s.
