The Belgian airline Air Belgium has today announced the launch of two new routes to the French West Indies. Starting on 7 December 2019, Pointe-à-Pitre (Guadeloupe) and Fort-de-France (Martinique) will be connected to Brussels-Charleroi airport by two flights a week.

In order to offer travellers maximum convenience, departures to Pointe-à-Pitre and Fort-de-France will be in the morning, thus offering passengers from France, the Grand-Duchy of Luxembourg, the Netherlands and west Germany easy access to the airport.

These new routes will be on the airline’s Airbus A340s with three classes and prices starting from;

Economy from €345 including all taxes (including luggage)

Business from €1,739 including all taxes

Boasting a lovely sunny climate, Guadeloupe and Martinique are two destinations with plenty of attractive characteristics for future passengers to enjoy. From nature to gastronomy, via fantastic local products, travellers are guaranteed a relaxing break without leaving Europe. People can travel to these two islands without the need to apply for a Visa or getting any particular vaccinations, and the currency is the Euro.

Philippe VERDONCK, Chief Executive Officer of Brussels South Charleroi Airport explains: « We are delighted with Air Belgium’s announcement, which opens up new horizons for us. Thanks to our responsiveness and our ability to adapt, we have proved that we can handle long-haul flights, and we are thrilled with the launch of these transatlantic routes from our tarmac. Guadeloupe and Martinique offer a huge range of activities for travellers. Whether you’re into water sports, hiking, nature or fine food, there’s something for everyone there. »
