December 26, 2016 – The company could soon serve the Paris-Saint Lucia route directly as it has just obtained authorization to land on this island near Martinique in the West Indies.
While the subsidiary of the TUI group has just strengthened its presence in the Indian Ocean, Corsair will not neglect the Caribbean market. It has recently obtained authorization from the French authorities to operate until 31 December 2021 to the destinations of Saint Lucia and Philipsburg (the Dutch part of Saint Martin).
Previously, the company proposed the island of Saint Lucia via Martinique in partnership with Air Antilles. However, Corsair will have to enter a market already served by British and German carriers. “As Air Infos points out, the island of Saint Lucia hosts several European airlines: British Airways, Virgin Atlantic, Thomson Airways (from May 2017) from London; Thomas Cook Airlines from Manchester (in season); and Condor from Frankfurt.
