Just in time for the busy Christmas holiday period, Corsair will be offering direct flights from Bordeaux Airport in France to Pointe-à-Pitre, in Guadeloupe.
The airline is on a mission to strengthen its service to overseas destinations by developing links between regional airports in metropolitan France and its overseas territories. At the same time, Corsair is renewing its fleet entirely in an effort to improve its environmental impact.
Passengers travelling from Bordeaux and the surrounding region of western France will be able to head to the Caribbean island from 19 December to 1 May 2022. The flights will depart from both destinations once a week on Sundays.
To broaden its range of destinations from France, all Corsair long-haul flights are connected with regional and inter-islands flights operated by the French carrier’s partner Air Antilles.
“The arrival of Corsair and this new scheduled route to a French overseas department opens a range of possibilities for the region,” said Simon Dreschel, Chairman of the Management Board of Bordeaux Airport. “This link between Nouvelle-Aquitaine and Guadeloupe is a fantastic opportunity to develop exchanges between the French Caribbean and our region, which boasts one of the largest Caribbean communities in France, and to strengthen numerous cultural ties.”
Corsair’s CEO, Pascal de Izaguirre, reiterated his support for the new route saying, “our aim is to offer people living in Bordeaux and Nouvelle-Aquitaine direct access to French overseas destinations. We’re going to facilitate the growth of tourist, family and business exchanges between overseas territories and the largest region in France.”
