American Airlines is launching weekly service to the Caribbean island of Martinique on April 6.
The new flights, which represent the first non-stop air service between Martinique and the U.S. mainland since 2008, will operate on Saturdays.
American Airlines’ schedule for the Miami-Martinique route will see its weekly flight AA474 depart Miami International Airport (MIA) on Saturdays at 11:40 a.m. and arrive at Martinique Aimé Césaire International Airport (FDF), serving Martinique’s capital Fort-de-France, at 2:35 p.m. local time.
In the other direction, flight AA589 is timed to leave FDF on Saturdays at 3:40 p.m. and reach MIA at 7:05 p.m. local time.
American Airlines will operate the service with Boeing 737-800 single-aisle jets seating 16 in business class and 134 in economy.
“These new flights represent a major step forward in Martinique’s development into a primary Caribbean vacation destination for U.S. travelers,” says Mrs. Karine Roy-Camille, commissioner of the Martinique Tourism Authority. “Interest has been growing for Martinique among U.S. travelers in recent years.”
American says its new service to Martinique will offer one-stop connections via Miami from hundreds of gateways across the United States, Canada, the Caribbean and Latin America, creating convenient flight options from major metropolitan areas such as New York, Toronto, Chicago, Montreal, Los Angeles, San Francisco, and Orlando.
