New Flight From American Airlines Connects the States to the Guadeloupe Islands

Palm treeAmerican Airlines will now operate weekly non-stop flights from Miami to Pointe-a-Pitre, Guadeloupe, a French island and luxury destination, located in the Lesser Antilles.

AA has scheduled late morning departures, facilitating stress-free connections from popular US cities and a late afternoon arrival time on the island.  AA will fly the Boeing 737 aircraft, offering 16 business class and 134 economy class seats.

Nestled against the eastern boundary of the Caribbean Sea, Guadeloupe encompasses two main archipelagos, the Grande-Terre and the Basse-Terre, and a close by cluster of three smaller islands; Marie-Galante, La Desirade, and Les Saintes.  An efficient inter-island connection system reduces trip time between landmasses to around 30 minutes.

Guadeloupe’s French heritage is most apparent in the island’s cuisine, which features local Creole creations such as stuffed land crabs, stewed conch, and diverse curry dishes.  The island also has a rich music and dance culture, well known for blending French, African, and Indian influences to create original styles such as the Zouk and Kompa.

Well maintained flora and fauna programs have succeeded in preserving Guadeloupe’s natural beauty, making ecotourism a key aspect in the development of the destination.  Hiking, kayaking, and canoeing are some popular activities available to the athletically inclined.
