The seasonal line, operated via a Boeing ASL Airlines 737 and marketed by Air Saint-Pierrebetween Paris and the airport Saint-Pierre Pointe-Blanche in the North Atlantic archipelago will return in mid-June 2024.

In the summer of 2018, a fascinating domestic transatlantic route was launched, operating seasonally once a week. Concretely, ASL Airlines operated a Boeing 737-700 marketed by Air Saint-Pierre between Paris (CDG) and Saint Pierre and Miquelon (FSP). The route ended up returning to 2019was then paused in 2020 and 2021 due to the pandemic, then returned in 2022 and 2023. The route will now return again, for the 2024 season.

The small French territory of 6,000 inhabitants, located off the Canadian east coast, hosts a rare and unique domestic transatlantic route. The route is offered by Air Saint-Pierre, the local airline of Saint Pierre and Miquelon.

Although its operations primarily connect the islands of Saint Pierre and Miquelon to neighboring Canadian destinations (Montreal—Trudeau, St. John’s Newfoundland, Newfoundland and Labrador, Halifax, St. John’s and the Islands of la Madeleine) using a small fleet of turboprop aircraft (an ATR 42-600 and a 9-seater Cessna F306), the airline also operates a seasonal summer connection between Saint-Pierre airport and the Paris Charles de Gaulle airport as part of a public service delegation (DSP).
