On Wednesday (July 28, 2021), Corsair announced the launch of new once-weekly service between Bordeaux and Point-á-Pitre, Guadeloupe from November 19, 2021. The route will be operated on Sundays through May 1st, 2022. The flight will depart Bordeaux at 15:30, arriving in Pointe-á-Pitre at 19:30 (all times local). The return flight departs Pointe-á-Pitre at 21:45 on Sunday and arrives in Bordeaux the next morning at 11:00. Economy Class return flights with checked baggage are now available for booking from €434. As part of Corsair’s ‘Total Serenity’ offer, all tickets are modifiable and refundable free of charge through March 2022.


In Wednesday’s announcement, Corsair’s Chairman and CEO, Pascal de Izaguirre, said,


“This direct link from Bordeaux to Pointe-à-Pitre, after facilitating access to the West Indies also from departures from Lyon and Nantes, consolidates our development of services from the major cities of the metropolis. Corsair is once again showing its desire to diversify its services to overseas territories in order to offer more choices to its customers, contribute to tourism development and facilitate territorial continuity for the Domiens.”


Also commenting on the new service, Bordeaux Airport’s Chairman, Thierry Couloumiés, said,


“We are delighted to welcome the long-haul company Corsair to the Bordeaux tarmac. This service to Guadeloupe provides easy access to a new distant French destination from Bordeaux. It offers an opportunity for a magnificent sunny escape to New Aquitaine in the middle of winter, with the simplicity of a direct flight and an attractive price. This line is also a fantastic opportunity to develop economic exchanges between the Antilles and our region, of which the Antillean community is one of the largest in France.”
