Norwegian Launches Its First Flights From the U.S. to Martinique, Guadeloupe


Norwegian recently launched its first flights from the United States to Guadeloupe and Martinique in the French Caribbean.

Flights departed almost simultaneously Thursday from Boston’s Logan International Airport (BOS) to Guadeloupe's  Pointe-a-Pitre International Airport (PTP) and from New York’s John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK) to Martinique Aime Cesaire International Airport (FDF). 

The service from Baltimore-Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport (BWI) will commence December 4. As of today, Norwegian will offer three flights per week from JFK to Guadeloupe and Martinique, and twice weekly service to both islands from Baltimore/Washington D.C. and Boston.

Due to high demand on the New York routes, Norwegian extended its season service through the end of April. Flights are now available for purchase on, with fares starting as low as $79 one-way, including taxes

The new French Caribbean routes will be a winter season operation 2015/16 due to lack of aircraft availability summer 2016. Next winter, with an even larger fleet available, Norwegian aims to return with more aircraft and more frequencies. In addition, new routes and destinations are being assessed.

Norwegian currently offers 34 nonstop routes from the U.S. to London, Scandinavia and the Caribbean, providing more European routes than any other European airline. Norwegian has added 10 new routes from the U.S. this year alone, including from Las Vegas and San Juan, Puerto Rico, to Europe. In May 2016, the airline will add flights from Boston to Copenhagen, London and Oslo.
