Following the launch of flights to the French Caribbean, Norwegian adds more flights to Martinique.

Scandinavian airline Norwegian Air has announced plans to add a new flight New York’s John F. Kennedy International Airport and Martinique’s Aimé Césaire International Airport.

New Flights from New York to Martinique

This will be the fourth weekly flight between New York and Martinique operated by the Scandinavian airline which is the third largest carrier in Europe.

The new route will commence on 29th October 2017.

The new service continues a recent trend of increased service to Caribbean destinations.

In 2015 Norwegian launched the first nonstop flights from the northeastern USA to Martinique in more than 20 years and, last Summer, the airline announced the launch of new flights to Martinique’s French Caribbean sister island Guadeloupe from Fort Lauderdale and New York.
