Air France is continuing to expand its Caribbean Regional Network that links overseas French territories, to facilitate travel and exchanges between the countries’ inhabitants. Two Air France Airbus A320s based in Pointe-à-Pitre fly year round between Pointe-à-Pitre, Fort-de-France, Cayenne and Miami, for up to 23 weekly flights.

On May 5, 2023, the airline will introduce a weekly direct flight between Cayenne (French Guiana) and Belém (Brazil). The flight will take off from Pointe-à-Pitre and fly to Fort-de-France, Cayenne and then Belem, allowing customers from Guadeloupe and Martinique to also travel to Brazil without having to make a connection. The flight will be on an Airbus A320 with a capacity of 168 seats (12 in Business, 156 in Economy) and equipped with Wi-Fi.

Belém, the city of mango trees

Capital city of the state of Pará, Belém is strategically located at the mouth of the Amazon and near the Atlantic Ocean. It is the second most populous city in northern Brazil and is renowned for its mango trees and the Mercado Ver-o-Peso, one of the largest open-air markets in Latin America since 1625. Large 19th century villas dating back to Brazil’s Belle Époque and rubber boom give the city its unique charm.

Scheduling changes to the Pointe-à-Pitre - Miami route

As of March 30, 2023, Air France will also adapt the schedule of its Pointe-à-Pitre - Miami route to allow customers from Fort-de-France and Cayenne to travel to Florida. There will be two weekly flights, also on an Airbus A320 168-seater.
