Winair takes flight to Martinique, expanding regional connectivity

Shortly after its return to Nevis, Winair announces further expansion with a new route – direct flights to Martinique. Starting April 1st, 2024, these flights directly connect Martinique (FDF) to both Sint Maarten (SXM) and Dominica (DOM) and vice versa, offering convenient options for both business and leisure travelers.

This expansion further solidifies Winair’s commitment to regional connectivity. Customers from Martinique can now connect to many destinations with just one stop at Princess Juliana International Airport St. Maarten. Winair connects Martinique to St. Barth, Antigua, St. Kitts, British Virgin Islands, and many destinations in the United States and Canada, all on the same day.

Winair CEO Hans van de Velde states “We are very happy that with this new connection, we open a route that is important for the inhabitants of the French part of St. Maarten and St. Barths. This way, we connect three French destinations seamlessly and comfortably with our modern ATR aircraft.”

The new flight schedule will operate as follows:

• Wednesdays & Sundays: SXM – FDF (16:30 – 17:45), FDF – DOM (18:15 – 19:00)
• Thursdays & Mondays: DOM – FDF (07:30 – 08:15), FDF – SXM (08:45 – 10:00)

    If Gaston Browne wants to spend all of Antigua’s hard earned money to keep LIAT afloat, that is his business. But I would not like Skerrit to spend a penny more on that money pit.
    There is connectivity between the islands, all the regional governments need to do is make it easier and cheaper for people to move between them. There is no real case to be made to keep LIAT in business. Let the private sector risk their money. If there is a demand, they will fill it.
    For too long, Gaston Browne has been trying to convince us that without LIAT, there will be no regional travel. This, coming from the same guy who is trying to keep Caribbean Airlines from servicing the region.

      “Zandoli, private sector, you said? Do you know that WinAir is owned by the Dutch government?

        If the Dutch, Trinidad and Antigua goverments want to own Airlines, more power to them. o just don’t want the government of Dominica to put any money into the airline business. That money should be spent on projects that benefit Dominicans.

    The demise of LIAT 1974 was quite evident for an inordinate period of time. Alternatives should have been put in place to continue the connectivity in intra regional air travel.

    I’ve stated the aforementioned comments to make this point and to express my profound disgust with the living standards in the Caribbean especially with these present crop of leaders.

    Air and sea connectivity woefully inadequate; inflation has far outpaced one’s salary and wage; hideous criminal activity everyday; healthcare deteriorating; education system a colossal failure (antiquated); joblessness expanding; death rate rapidly exploding.

    The future in this region looks grim except for the politicians presently in office who are living like emperors, kings, deep pockets, barons and tycoons.

    We need a revolution. We need leaders not rulers. Honest, caring and visionary leaders who would be like a rising tide that lifts all boats.

    Hot debate. What do you think? Thumb up 8 Thumb down 8
