About Air Caraibes

Air Caraibes is a regional carrier serving Guadeloupe and Martinique in the French Caribbean. Although it has a history dating back to 1969, it did not commence operations in its current form until 2000, when Air Martinique, Air Guadeloupe, Air Saint Martin and Air Saint Barthelmy all merged. It is currently based in Les Abymes, Guadeloupe, with operations at Pointe a Pitre International Airport, Martinique Aime Cesaire International Airport and Paris Orly Airport. Its fleet of 8 aircraft is made up of different Airbus and ATR models.

It primarily focuses on inter-island flights but also connects the French Caribbean with mainland France through transatlantic flights to Paris. Its 14 destinations are all holiday hotspots and include the likes of Port au Prince in Haiti, Punta Cana in the Dominican Republic and San Salvador in the Bahamas. It is a member of the Carib Sky Alliance, together with Winair and Leewards Islands Air Transport.
