New Airline Connections to Saint Lucia

The Saint Lucia Hotel and Tourism Association (SLHTA) today advised their members of new and improved flight connections which are now available via Martinique facilitating French visitor arrivals for 2012.
As of December 11, 2011 and on a year round basis,  the French airline CorsairFly has entered into a code share agreement with Air Antilles, allowing passengers smooth transit from Fort de France to Saint Lucia’s George Charles airport (SLU).  Forty-eight airline seats are available three times weekly (Wed, Fri, Sun) from Orly Airport in Paris to Fort de France and on to Saint Lucia.
In addition, the French airline Air Caraibes increased their services to four flights for winter 2011-2012 from Orly to Saint Lucia, with smooth transit arrangement in Fort De France. In both instances, the luggage is checked through directly to Saint Lucia.
“We here at SLHTA feel that the French market holds great potential for Saint Lucia, and that we should further explore opportunities available through the Martinique gateway,” said Karolin Troubetzkoy, the President of SLHTA. “Our destination does not currently have an up to date French website or any other online presence such as a French Facebook page and we would welcome if the SLTB could consider including the development of this into their 2012 marketing plans. A French online presence would also assist marketing activities directed at French speaking Canada.”
