Norwegian Air Shuttle announced more flight routes to Guadeloupe in a press release, including new flights from Ft. Lauderdale starting later this year and more departures from New York.
Starting December 17, flights will operate between South Florida and Guadeloupe (PTP) twice weekly on Wednesdays and Saturdays. Due to high demand, Norwegian will also add a fourth weekly service from New York’s John F. Kennedy International Airport to Guadeloupe as of December 17.
“The new route complements Norwegian’s successful service to the French Caribbean Islands of Guadeloupe that launched with nonstop service from Baltimore/Washington DC, Boston, and New York in December last year. Winter season flights will resume on November 10th and tickets to Guadeloupe are already available for purchase atnorwegian.com/us, with fares as low as $79 one-way, including taxes,” said a statement.
“We are very excited to add our seventh route from the United States to the French Caribbean, this time from Florida. Norwegian will now be able to offer Floridians a much more affordable and comfortable way to reach the French Caribbean, or if they wish to travel onwards to any of the nearby islands,” said Bjørn Kjos, Norwegian’s CEO and Founder.
“We are thrilled about the increase of service from New York and the new nonstop flights from Fort Lauderdale to Guadeloupe. An airline operating nonstop flights to Pointe-à-Pître from four different cities in the US is just unprecedented. The best kept secret of the Caribbean has been clearly revealed thanks to Norwegian and we are delighted that Americans are falling for our French Caribbean Flair and preserved Nature,” said Sandra Venite, USA Director for the Guadeloupe Islands Tourist Board.
