Martinique’s tourism development strategy took a major step forward with the recent announcement of the launch of new nonstop flights from three major gateways in the Northeastern United States – New York (JFK), Boston (BOS) and Baltimore/Washington, D.C. (BWI) – aboard Norwegian Air Shuttle.
The new service, which begins December 3, 2015, represents the first time that Martinique has been directly accessible from the Northeast in more than 20 years.
“The critical importance of the Northeastern U.S. market to tourism development in the Caribbean is well-known in our industry," said Muriel Wiltord, director Americas of the Martinique Promotion Bureau, in a written release. "These new flights from Norwegian represent a significant step forward in our overall U.S. development strategy, building upon our success in re-establishing nonstop flights from the U.S. via Miami in 2013 and the tremendous growth we’ve seen in the cruise sector since 2010.”
Flights from New York will take off to Martinique on Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday. Flights out of Baltimore/Washington D.C. will take place on Monday and Fridays while Boston flights to Martinique will be offered on Wednesdays and Sundays.
