Martinique Says All is Good Despite Labor Strike


The Martinique Promotion Bureau reported late Tuesday afternoon that key segments of the island’s tourism infrastructure continue to operate normally despite an ongoing labor strike.

Earlier in the day Travel Agent told you about measures Air France taking for all passengers flying to Martinique and Guadeloupe, two destinations currently in the midst of labor strikes.

According to a release by the Martinique Promotion Bureau, Martinique’s Aimé Césaire International Airport is open and operating normally; all hotels and resorts in Martinique are open and accommodating guests; all beaches in Martinique are open and remain accessible; car rental companies in Martinique are open and providing fuel to customers; roughly 50 percent of Martinique’s gas stations are open; banks across Martinique are closed, but ATM machines are functioning normally and all emergency services (police, fire rescue, ambulance) in Martinique are operating normally. The strike, according to our source, started in Guadeloupe a little more than a month ago but has spread to Martinique as recently as 12 days ago. We’ll keep you updated with any further developments.
